Manchester United issue update on Victor Lindelof after worrying cardiac episode

Manchester United’s clash with Brentford called off amid COVID cases

COVID-19 continues to play havoc with Premier League schedules, with Manchester United the latest side to have a game called off as a precaution, postponing the clash with Brentford that was due to take place on Tuesday evening.

A club statement said:

Following PCR confirmation of positive LFT Covid-19 tests among the first-team staff and players, the outbreak requires ongoing surveillance.

Given cancellation of training and disruption to the squad, and with the health of players and staff the priority, the Club requested the match to be rearranged. The Premier League Board took the decision to postpone based on guidance from medical advisors.

It follows on from Tottenham’s clash with Brighton having been postponed last weekend due to a COVID-19 outbreak at the Spurs training ground.

Lindelof injury not COVID related

A more serious issue reared its head on Saturday evening, during Manchester United’s trip to Carrow Road. Red Devils defender Victor Lindelof went down in an off the ball incident midway through the second half, suggesting that he was having trouble breathing, and had to be replaced by Eric Bailly in an altogether worrying episode.

Now, in a statement, Manchester United have provided an update, and confirmed that the issue is not COVID-19 related. They said:

“Victor is currently undergoing a series of precautionary investigations, However, he has recovered well from the episode he experienced in the match against Norwich. 

All indications are that this is not linked to any COVID outbreak within the club.”

Everyone hopes that Lindelof is not suffering from anything serious, and that he makes a speedy and full recovery.
