“A few days ago I went through a difficult situation, something that can happen at any moment of life, but fortunately I’m fine.” Casillas said in a statement on FC Porto website.

“I am grateful and feel that I am very lucky. Thank you to all who cared, for I felt very dear and cherished. I can only get out of this situation with a smile.

“For me, it’s exciting to see so many people here listening to me.

“I thank all those who helped me and who allowed the effect of the infarction not to be so serious, because the FC Porto medical team responded immediately.

“I was treated very well in the hospital too. Thank you for the thousands of messages of support and affection I received. 

“I feel much better and now it will be a rest for a couple of weeks or a couple of months, I do not know, but the most important thing is to be here. 

“Thank you all. I do not know what the future will be, but the most important thing is to be here, to be able to speak and transmit to everyone how I am and how I feel.

“Thank you very much and see you soon.”

Casillas has been advised to take a minimum of three to six months for recuperation according to reports. But there are no guarantees yet, that the Spaniard will ever be able to continue in club football.
