Casillas not ready to quit FC Porto and extends deal

Iker Casillas has decided to sign a new one-year contract at FC Porto. It was expected the veteran Spanish goalkeeper would leave the club after helping them to their first league title since 2013, but Casillas is determined to stay on for another year.

“I am extremely happy to stay here for one more year. It’s amazing to be linked to a fantastic club and city, both of which welcomed me from day one,” said Casillas, who celebrates his 37th birthday on Sunday. “There were rumours that I would leave, but I always intended to stay. Fortunately, I was able to do so, and I am happy for it.”

“When I got to FC Porto, three years ago, the intention was to win the maximum number of titles possible”, Casillas continued. “My arrival coincided with a less fortunate period for the club, but now that we got this important title, we need to enjoy it. Our goal is to surpass what we did this year. We have the title in mind, as we have other national competitions, which are also important for a club as prestigious as is FC Porto.”
