WIGAN, England (AP) - English club Wigan says Honduras defender Juan Carlos Garcia has been diagnosed with leukemia.

Garcia, who played at the 2014 World Cup, developed a blood disorder and went to a Manchester hospital for treatment.

Wigan manager Malky Mackay says “we’ve had some bad news as far as that’s concerned, he has a form of leukemia.”

Mackay says Garcia’s mother, wife and sister have flown over from Honduras.

The 26-year-old Garcia joined Wigan in 2013 from Olimpia in Honduras.
