ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – New Mexico United forward Devon Sandoval is out for the rest of the season with heart issues.

An announcement was made Friday morning on Twitter. Sandoval revealed two blood clots were found in the artery of his heart. Doctors cleaned one of the clots and Sandoval is on blood thinners to clean up the other clot.

According to Sandoval, he started to feel pressure in his chest while exercising six weeks before the Oct. 22 announcement. Last week, he visited the hospital where they conducted imaging and bloodwork that detected the clots.
