In a heartfelt and emotional announcement, Lars Dendoncker, a former Premier League star and Belgian professional footballer, revealed his early retirement from football at 22.
Citing a diagnosed heart condition, Dendoncker has opted to prioritize his health over his passion and illustrious career in professional football.
Last year, Dendoncker wrote on his Instagram, “I have been through tough times the past few months. Six months ago I was about to make a transfer to a new club. I did my medical and something wasn’t right with my heart condition. I suffered from myocarditis. But I did not have many symptoms. I had to stop playing football for 3 months and undergo further examination. I am still waiting for some second opinions and will keep everyone posted on my future.”
