Cardiologist claims Strinic will miss rest of 2018 with heart problem

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan defender Ivan Strinic will need at least 3-4 months on the sidelines after being diagnosed with a heart problem, according to one cardiologist.

The club confirmed last week that the Croatia international had suffered an “initial hypertrophy of the cardiac muscle”.

According to Bruno Caru, this will see the former Sampdoria man out until the new year.

“To understand which type of hypertrophy Strinic has, he needs to rest for at least 3-4 months,” he told Tuttosport.

“A shorter period would not make sense, unless in the next four weeks the player isn’t subjected to more detailed specialist tests, which can prevent the most serious pathology of cardiac hypertrophy.”
