Heart Problem For Inter Starlet

Young Inter Milan defender, Felice Natalino, is waiting to hear from doctors whether or not he can play football again.

The promising 20-year-old stopper was forced to undergo emergency heart surgery, and his career may well be over as a result.

Natalino was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat earlier this season, and was booked off work.

He did return to training, before falling ill and being forced into hospital for an emergency corrective procedure.

The player’s father has now confirmed that they are waiting for advice from doctors regarding Natalino’s ability to play on.

"The doctors told us we need to wait until we'll know if Felice can return to playing football," Pasquale Natalino told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"If he can, then it won't be earlier than four or five months.

"What really counts is that my son is fine and we are happy. On Wednesday, he didn't want to miss watching a minute of the [Italy] Under-21 game [against Germany] or Italy against Holland.

“Our joy is seeing him healthy. The rest? We'll see."
