Revealing a serious reason for Cancelo’s absence from the Barcelona-Atletico Madrid match

There were mixed reports about the reason for Joao Cancelo’s absence from the last match between Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. The initial reports indicated that he was suffering from a physical injury, then the Barcelona players said that he had a personal crisis.

RAC1 Network revealed the real reason for the Portuguese international’s absence from the match that ended with the Catalan club’s 3-0 victory, which is shocking and somewhat disturbing.

A member of Cancelo’s family suffered from heart problems, so Barcelona’s medical staff decided to keep the player away from participating in the Atletico Madrid match for fear that he had genetic factors that affect the heart.

During the past few days, the former Manchester City right-back underwent many heart tests to check on his condition and the health of his heart.

The results of the tests were positive, proving that the player did not suffer from heart disease, and so he returned again to training in Barcelona before setting off on his way to the Portugal national team camp.

Cancelo will miss Portugal’s first match in the current international break against Sweden on Thursday, and is scheduled to join coach Roberto Martinez’s squad from Friday and play the match with Slovenia after that.
