The ‘Zurdo’ López underwent a catheterization and it is studied if they should operate

The former Junior Technician Miguel Ángel López was hospitalized last Monday morning at the Clínica del Caribe, after feeling discomfort and abnormal pressure.

The news was known through social networks, after one of his pupils in the rojiblanco team, former striker Martín Arzuaga, reported his health status through Twitter.

“Let us put in our prayers Professor Miguel Ángel López, who suffered an acute myocardial infarction,” wrote the ‘Toro’.

Until the closing of this edition, no official medical report was known about the state of health of the ‘Zurdo’.

The Argentine, champion with the Sharks in 2004, has been based in Barranquilla for several years.

Francisco Arias, who works as López’s assistant, assures that the 78-year-old veteran helmsman “is stable, calm and in good spirits”, waiting for what the doctors decide.

“Still under observation. They’ve already had a catheterization that resulted in a clogged artery. The possibility of open heart surgery or another type of intervention is being studied, ”Arias told EL HERALDO.

The former technician, according to Arias, remains in constant communication with those closest to him. His relatives in Argentina have already been informed and are aware of his health, like many of Junior’s fans who have a feeling of admiration and gratitude for the star he helped embroider on the shield in 2004.

In dialogue with EL HERALDO, a few months ago, ‘El Zurdo’ had sent a message of affection and gratitude to the rojiblanca fans, in the midst of confinement due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I want to thank you for the affection that I always receive. I miss you. Thank you for making my days happy, ”said the historic Argentine coach at the time.

The Sharks prevailed on penalties 5-4.

He directed the Barranquilla team on seven occasions. Without a doubt, he is a character that is 100% linked to junior history.

‘El Zurdo’ made his debut as a professional footballer at the University of Córdoba in 1962 and retired in 1975 at Atlético Nacional, a club where he made his debut as a coach a year later.

During his long coaching career, he has twice managed América de México, with whom he won two league titles in 1985 and a Concacaf Champions League in 1992.

He was also in the Independiente de Avellaneda, with which he raised the title of the South American Super Cup in 1995, and also in the Argentine Boca Juniors, Rosario Central, Ferro Carril Oeste and Arsenal.
