After getting substituted due to breathing problems against Norwich, Victor Lindelof is recovering well

Manchester United central defender Victor Lindelof is now recovering well as he is undergoing a series of precautionary investigations as per the Premier League club’s official statement.

Premier League club Manchester United is in the headlines these days after their match was called off by the officials due to COVID-19 outbreak cases. Also when Man United was at Carrow Road last weekend, central defender Victor Lindelof was been substituted in the second half after he suffered a breathing problem. In the 71st minute, when Man United was drawing 0-0 against Norwich City FC, Victor Lindelof made a clearance and went down on the ground just after that. All the players went to him and United’s midfielder Fred was the one who pointed to the MUFC dugout and asked the medical team to come soon. Lindelof was taken out and United played with 10-men for some minutes.

Later in the 74th minute, the referee pointed to the penalty spot after Norwich’s defender Max Aarons fouled on Cristiano Ronaldo. Before the Portuguese converted the penalty and gave the lead to Manchester United, Lindelof was substituted by another defender named Eric Bailly. In the post-match interview, Man United’s boss Ralf Rangnick mentioned this incident where he said that Lindelof had breathing problems for more than 10 minutes and his heart rate was higher than normal. Thus, the Sweden National team’s captain was been substituted in the second half.


Premier League club Manchester United on Tuesday posted an update on Lindelof’s issue. “Victor is currently undergoing a series of precautionary investigations. However, he has recovered well from the episode he experienced in the match against Norwich,” Premier League club Man United said in their official statement.
