Sara Carbonero, the wife of Spanish goalkeeping great, Iker Casillas, has said she hopes her husband will be discharged from hospital on Monday after suffering a heart attack.
The World Cup-winning captain was admitted after being taken ill at Porto’s training ground on Wednesday, with the club later confirming that the goalkeeper had suffered “an acute myocardial infarction,” adding that: “The work session was promptly interrupted to provide assistance to the Porto goalkeeper, who is currently at the Hospital CUF Porto. Casillas is well, stable and his heart problem [is] solved.”
And although Casillas himself later tweeted that he is “stable” and “everything is controlled,” Carbonero confirmed to AS on Friday that “Iker is calm, it’s very good.
“We have to stay a few more days in the hospital, maybe he will be discharged on Monday and we can go home.”
Porto president, Jorge Pinto da Costa, visited the goalkeeper on Friday, with the rest of the first-team squad due to be in the hospital later in the day.
