Iker Casillas insists he has not made the decision to retire yet after Portuguese newspaper Record reported on Thursday that he has quit football.

Reports suggested the legendary goalkeeper decided to call time on his glittering career following a heart attack he suffered while playing for FC Porto on May 1.

The former Real Madrid star joined the Portuguese outfit when he left the Santiago Bernabeu in 2015 and was said to be taking up a role with the club’s board instead.

However, soon after the reports emerged, Casillas took to Twitter to clear the air.

He retweeted his post from last month where he stated he will be undergoing a review with the doctor before deciding on his future.

The Spaniard retweeted with the quote: “The same as this tweet from a month ago except the part of the review with the doctor. More than anything because I have it tomorrow. I hug everyone.”

Casillas won five La Liga titles in Spain as well as three Champions League crowns before adding another domestic league success at Porto.

Capped 167 times for Spain, he led them to two European Championships in 2008 and 2012 while also lifting the World Cup in 2010.
