The Polish Football Association’s memorandum is clear: “Zelensky leaves the national team due to a problem, an angina problem.”. Napoli are clearly concerned and are waiting for their playmaker to return to conduct more in-depth investigations with the medical staff. Although the term angina is almost always associated with heart problems, this is not the case for Zielinsky.
Then the federation added: “Piotr Zielinski left the Polish national team’s retreat due to illness: the Polish national team doctor diagnosed the player with angina pectoris. Despite immediate treatment, the player’s condition did not improve enough to participate in training and Tuesday’s match. That’s why Piotr Zielinski returned to the club.”.
Through more in-depth investigation in the past few hours, the most extreme hypothesis has been avoided. Zelensky’s angina is not cardiac in nature but “nodal” That is, of an infectious nature, but in the throat. A type of tonsillitis, as Napoli also explains.
The midfielder did not participate in his national team’s two matches due to a “flu case.” Many believed that he had contracted Covid-19, to the point that the federation denied this possibility. Zelensky has had Covid twice in the past few years And one in particular in a very significant way, so much so that his wife warned on social media: “Be careful, it’s not just the flu.”
An incident that occurred two years ago has raised concerns: on December 12, 2021, on the pitch against Empoli, The midfielder was substituted after 22 minutes What appeared to be a heart attack, with the player complaining of chest pains. In fact, after all the necessary investigations were done, it was assessed as a panic attack.
