Ivan Strinic Returns To Training After Heart Problem

AC Milan and Croatia defender Ivan Strinic has been cleared to start training again after three months out with a heart problem.

Strinic only signed for the Italian giants in July and is yet to make an appearance for the club.

The 31-year-old was diagnosed as having “athlete’s heart”, which is recognized as not dangerous according to cardiologists.

Strinic was part of the Croatia team that reached the World Cup final, after beating England, in Russia in the summer.

Before moving to the San Siro, Strinic played for five clubs, including hometown team Hajduk Split and Ukrainian side Dnipro.

He moved to Serie A in 2015, spending two seasons with Napoli before a switch to Sampdoria in the summer of 2017.

Strinic has won 49 caps for Croatia in a nine-year international career.
