Manchester United player Victor Lindelof is wearing a heart monitor after suffering chest pains during a game against Norwich on Saturday.
Lindelof’s wife, Maja Nilsson has revealed this development on her blog.
“It was a scary match to watch and Victor was very cut up afterwards.
[It was] Incredibly uncomfortable, especially when I did not get hold of him, which I always manage to. It was a long time before I got hold of someone on the team who updated me.
Yesterday he did a lot of tests and has a heart monitor on for two days to make sure everything is OK. Everything seems to be OK as luck would have it and we are waiting for answers to the last tests that will end tomorrow.”
Lindelof’s health scare was not the only incident in Europe’s top football leagues this weekend. Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski and Rennes striker Martin Terrier were also forced to leave the field after clutching their chests and having trouble breathing.
The three incidents follow five high-profile cases of football players collapsing in recent months. Cardiologists insist the recent spate of health issues is “purely coincidental”, though one may be hard-pressed to find similar occurrences during previous football seasons.Please consider supporting by sharing or making a donation.
