Football: Porto contemplate a replacement for Casillas
Football Due to his recent heart attack
The former Real Madrid captain suffered the heart attack during a training session and was sent straight to the hospital, where he remained until he was discharged after his condition was stabilised and he was out of danger.
“We have an extra problem with Casillas, with whom we had renewed [his contract] and we did not think that we would need a goalkeeper, but now we think we’re going to need one and we’re also dealing with that case,” Pinto da Costa told O Jogo.
Neither the club nor the player have confirmed anything about his future, but Porto are looking for another No.1 for next season.
The Porto medical team have already warned that his return to professional football would depend on his recovery, his reaction to the medication and the player’s own will.
