De la Red undergoing tests for heart problem

Ruben de la Red's football future was in doubt Tuesday after Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon revealed that the Spain international could be suffering from a heart problem.
De la Red collapsed on the field during Madrid's Copa del Rey match at Real Union on Oct. 30 and spent the night in hospital thereafter.
De la Red hasn't returned since the 3-2 defeat as club doctors continue to run tests to determine the nature of the 23-year-old midfielder's condition.
"De la Red suffered a heart problem," Calderon told radio station Cadena SER. "All of the tests that have been done haven't detected anything abnormal."
Calderon said that De la Red would not play until doctors were assured that his health was not in jeopardy.
De la Red fell face first as he was walking away from the penalty area in the 13th minute, silencing the crowd at Real Union's Gal Stadium. He required treatment for two minutes on the field before being carried off on a stretcher, having appeared to recover consciousness.
De la Red was a member of Spain's European Championship-winning team in June, scoring a goal in group play.
