Barcelona defender suspected of having a heart problem

Full-back João Cancelo will undergo tests to investigate a possible hereditary heart problem. The Barcelona player was left out of the Atlético de Madrid game on medical advice, according to “RAC1” radio.

As a result, according to the radio, a family member of Cancelo has a heart problem. For this reason, Barcelona’s medical department vetoed the player from the match – the full-back was not even listed, under the official justification of physical problems. The idea is to carry out tests to rule out any hereditary disease.

After the game, which ended in a 3-0 victory for Barcelona, ​​striker Fermín dedicated the result to Cancelo and hinted that the full-back was experiencing a more serious problem.

“He’s going through problems. (The result) is for him,” Fermín said.

Even with Barcelona’s precautions, Cancelo was called up by the Portuguese national team for the March friendlies. The player, however, will not participate in the game against Sweden and will only be available for the duel with Slovenia, next Tuesday.

At a press conference, Portugal coach Roberto Martínez asked for calm regarding Cancelo’s situation.

“We need to face this matter naturally. The noise is not the most appropriate at this time. Cancelo is on the list for the second game, we are working on this situation. We are monitoring the players as we always do,” said Martínez.
