FC Porto-coach Sérgio Conceição is relieved that the circumstances go well with goalkeeper Iker Casillas, who on Wednesday during the training of his club was struck by a heart attack.
“I can, medically, not much to say about the status of Iker, but I know that his recovery is going well. That is nice,” said Conceição Friday at a press conference.
The 37-year-old Casillas was after the incident at the training to a hospital. The Spaniard underwent immediate surgery, in which a stent was placed, a small tube, causing the blood vessels in the heart are kept open. FC Porto called his status previously not of concern, and stable.
