Lucas Leiva says stop due to a heart problem


The heart has its reasons.

Former Brazilian international midfielder Lucas Leiva announced his permanent retirement from football at a press conference on Friday. At 36, the player is plagued by a heart problem that his club Grêmio revealed last December following worrying medical tests. “Grêmio’s medical service reports that Lucas Leiva presented, during routine pre-season examinations, an image of a change in heart rate, and that the player will therefore be withdrawn from physical activities until additional tests are carried out and of the treatment of the disease. »

A treatment that clearly does not allow the player to resume his activity at the highest level, pushing him to formalize his decision with tears in his eyes to Brazilian journalists. “It was a difficult period. I think this is the first time I’ve cried over this case. But I can only thank you. I finish where I want, not how I want. I’m sure a new cycle will begin. I had high hopes that it might turn around, but it didn’t. My health comes first”said in particular the one who stayed ten years in Liverpool, between 2007 and 2017.

THE Redshave also praised the course of their former player, evoking a “brilliant career”.
