Man United’s Lindelof undergoing tests

Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof is undergoing “precautionary investigations” after suffering breathing difficulties during Saturday’s English Premier League game against Norwich.

The EPL giants said the Sweden international “has recovered well” from the incident during the 1-0 win over the Canaries where he had to be replaced.

“All indications are that this is not linked to any COVID outbreak within the club,” United said in a short statement, hours after announcing their league match against Brentford on Tuesday was postponed because some United players and staff returned positive tests for the coronavirus on Sunday.

Lindelof has been wearing a heart monitor since Saturday’s match, his wife wrote on Monday in her widely read blog.

“Everything seems to be OK as luck would have it and we are waiting for answers to the last tests that will end tomorrow (Tuesday),” Maja Nilsson Lindelof wrote.

United interim manager Ralf Rangnick said after the match the Sweden defender also had a higher heart rate than normal, prompting the decision to replace him.
