FC Porto want to keep goalkeeper Iker Casillas on staff despite the Spanish veteran suffering a heart attack in training.

“Casillas still has a year left on his contract and we want him to remain part of FC Porto’s structure, and not only for one year,” club president Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa told Thursday’s sports daily O Jogo.

“Casillas is one of us and he will always have a place at FC Porto.”

The former Real Madrid and Spain star, who will celebrate his 38th birthday on Monday, was taken to hosital and had surgery on May 1 after collapsing during training.

He left hospital after five days and said he was “lucky” to be alive but had no immediate plans for the future.
