July 29 (Reuters) – Serie A club Spezia have ended Leo Sena’s contract by mutual agreement on Friday after the Brazilian midfielder missed last season due to COVID-19.
Medical tests ahead of the 2021-2022 campaign determined Sena was not fit enough to return to action after the 26-year-old had fallen ill with COVID-19.
“To Leo Sena, the best wishes for a future full of satisfaction, sporting and not,” Spezia said website in a statement.
