Real Madrid legend will be the president

Iker Casillas was in may last year suffered a heart attack, and speculation in particular has gone on, whether he would permanently put an end to his career.

In that case it becomes not a definitive goodbye to the world of football, the 38-year-old Porto goalkeeper has just announced his candidacy for the top sporting body in Spain (RFEF).

Thus he challenges the current president, Luis Rubiales, who has been sitting on the stool since 2018.

And it seems that it can easily develop into a genuine kamphane-reckoning, for the Iker Casillas already has the support from others, including the president of the French football federation (LFP), Javier Tebas.

It writes Forbes.

if you Ask the spaniards themselves, they also would rather Casillas sit as chair of the associated. According to the Spanish sportsavis Marca he will get the backing from 94 percent of the vote in contrast to Luise Rubiales, which only receives six percent.

The upcoming election will take place in the autumn of the year, but can perhaps already be held, before the european finals begin.

the 38-year-old Iker Casillas was in goal for Real Madrid in the period from 1999 to 2015. Then he moved to FC Porto, where he has been since.

The triple Champions League winner has also played the whole of 169 appearances for Spain.
