Iker Casillas 'cannot play football again' after heart attack says Cardiologist

Iker Casillas will not be able to resume his football career following his heart attack, according to a well-known Spanish cardiologist.

The Spanish World Cup winning goalkeeper suffered a myocardial infarction in training with Porto on Wednesday, and was immediately rushed to the hospital for surgery.

That surgery was a success, and Casillas shared a picture of himself smiling from his hospital bed on Wednesday evening.

And now cardiologist and former Real Madrid basketball player Juan Antonio Corbalan says that while Casillas will make a full recovery, he will no longer be able to play football.
"You cannot play football with a coronary stent, especially a goalkeeper," he said, via AS .

"Iker will return to living a normal life, but he can no longer be a professional athlete."
