Iker Casillas is the new candidate for President of the Spanish Soccer Federation.

The 38-year-old hasn’t played for Porto since April 2019 after the heart attack.

Iker Casillas could be the Spanish FA president

The legend of Real Madrid, Iker Casillas, announced that he would run for president of the Spanish FA, while the cult goalkeeper is preparing to retire. At 38, the winner of the World Cup is ready to hang his gloves. He has remained on books by the Portuguese side of Porto since he experienced a severe fear of health in the spring of 2019. Now the plans are coming together for a career outside the field, while Casillas announced his intention to challenge Luis Rubiales from the right to take control of the Premier League. A man who stepped out of Real Madrid’s famous academy system to spend 16 years trophy-laden with the Blancos said on Twitter when announcing his new venture: “We work with utmost respect and determination in our candidacy.”

23 000 voters for FA

“More than 23 thousand voters are waiting for us in fair and transparent elections. 139 members of the assembly will make a decision. Iker added his gaming obligations: “I informed President Porto of my decision, which I want to express my deepest gratitude to.” He can count on attracting a significant amount of support in an attempt to fill a prominent role away from the field. As captain of the Spanish national team, he helped deliver the World Cup glory and two triumphs for the European Championship.

Carles Puyol supports Iker

Iker also collected an excellent move of medals at the club level, including five La Liga titles and three Champions League crowns. Those who once played with him are likely to join his fight, but the great Carles Puyol from Barcelona says he has not had any discussions when it comes to potentially working with Casillas. He told reporters: “I saw something on Twitter and also read that I was with him, and I can tell you now that I did not speak with Iker.” Iker is a friend, and if he calls me, I will listen; Another thing is to join him. I am also a friend of those from Barcelona; “These are the positions that you have to convince people because it is a big responsibility. It depends on a vital moment in which everyone can engage or not.”
