Nagelsmann confirmed the surgical procedure, claiming the player suffered from shortness of breath.

"His heartbeat rhythm had a slight disturbance with a minor added beat.
"At times he had a slight shortage of breath."
The 34-year-old added: "That's why we opted for long-term ECG monitoring and went ahead with this procedure.

An arrhythmia is the heart beating with an irregular or abnormal rhythm.
It occurs when the electrical signals to the heart that coordinate heartbeats are not working properly.
