The Real Madrid and Spain great had a myocardial infarction on May 1 and underwent emergency surgery before returning home five days later.

Reports in Portugal claimed Casillas will announce his retirement on Thursday, with the goalkeeper said to be taking up a role on Porto’s board of directors.

But the 38-year-old indicated the media have jumped the gun, because he is yet to be told by medical experts whether he has recovered enough to play football again.

“The same as this tweet a month ago, except for the part of the medical check with the doctor,” Casillas wrote on Twitter, referencing a previous retirement denial.

“More than anything because I have it tomorrow.”
