The Swede struggled to breathe during the Red Devils’ trip to Norwich at the weekend.

Manchester United have released a promising update on central defender Victor Lindelof.

The 27-year-old suffered breathing difficulties in the second half of the club’s 1-0 win at Norwich City in the Premier League last Sunday, before Eric Bailly replaced him at Carrow Road.

Interim boss Ralf Rangnick told reporters after the match that Lindelof seemed fine after tests, but was left ‘a little shocked’.

However, in their latest update on Tuesday morning, United have assured the Swede has ‘recovered well’ and added that his problem appears to have not been related to the club’s COVID-19 outbreak.

“Victor is currently undergoing a series of precautionary investigations,” read a statement. “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.”

As previously mentioned, United have suffered a COVID-19 outbreak and first-team activities remain closed.

This includes Tuesday night’s Premier League match against Brentford, which has been formally postponed.
