Leonardo Ponzio has myocarditis and will not be able to travel to the United States to participate in the preseason with River Plate.
Javier Gil Navarro provided the terrible news for millionaire fans and, above all, for the midfielder who is in the final stretch of his career. This was possibly his last preseason with the millionaire team and he will not be able to join due to a heart problem, a sequel to COVID-19.
Like Paulo Díaz, who could not do physical activity since May 15 when he was infected, Leo had shown alarm signals in the first images. But the medical team of the club was optimistic that the rest period was going to exceed the picture.
However, the studies showed that myocarditis persists and there are no details on the recovery time.
The millionaire squad will travel to Orlando next Friday to play a series of friendlies and work towards what is coming.
