Lucas Leiva Removed from Training Following the Discovery of a Heart Condition

After a heart condition was discovered during a screening, Lucas Leiva, a former Liverpool midfielder, has been removed from Gremio's training program. After leaving Lazio, the 35-year-old signed a new contract with the Brazilian team earlier this year, but he is unlikely to play for them soon. Lucas was found to have an "alteration of the cardiac rhythm" during routine pre-season tests at the club, it has been revealed. He said in a statement that he tweeted from his account that the Gremio Medical Department has informed the athlete Lucas Leiva that during the pre-season routine exams, he showed signs of a change in the cardiac rhythm.

As a result, he is not allowed to participate in physical activities until complementary tests and treatments are complete. His former team, Liverpool, was quick to offer their support, and the Reds responded: Lucas, we are all with you. After moving from Gremio to Merseyside in 2007, Lucas spent ten seasons at Anfield. During his time with the giants of the Premier League, he not only won the League Cup but also made 346 appearances in all competitions, scoring seven goals and providing 21 assists.

At Liverpool, the former Brazil international was a fan favorite, but he left in 2017 to join Lazio in Italy. He decided to return to his home country and re-sign for the club where everything began after playing 198 games and winning three trophies in Rome. Additionally, Lucas was also on hand to score a crucial goal as Gremio beat rivals Nautico in October to secure their promotion back to the top flight of Brazilian football. Since his return to the club of his boyhood, he has made 17 appearances for them, scoring three goals during that time.
