Former FC Twente attacker Bersant Celina is forced to lower his career for several months. The 24-year-old Kosovar, now for the French Dijon FCO, is experiencing heart problems.
Dijon did not confirm the news, but L‘Équipe and the Kosovo journalist Arlind Sadiku know that Celina will not take action for the time being. Dijon relegated from the Ligue 1 last season and has already begun the new Ligue 2 year, but Celina was not selected for the matches against Sochaux and Olympique Nîmes.
So that seems to be related to his heart problems, which are reportedly the result of coronavirus infection. According to reports, Celina suffers from pericarditis, an inflammation of a pericardium, and at least needs to rest for three months.
Celina was hired by FC Twente from Manchester City during the 2016/2017 season and accounted for five goals and five assists in 27 Eredivision-matches. He then ended up in France via Ipswich Town and Swansea City.
Bersant Celina has an infection (Pericarditis) and needs to rest for 3 months. It is receiving treatment at home, and will return to the club in a month. We hope that this infection doesn’t turn into a chronic disease, because it could end his career.Quick recovery Bersant ❤️
