“Everything seems to be ok as luck would have it and we are waiting for answers to the last tests that will end tomorrow.”
Maja further revealed in a blog post on Monday saying, “It was a scary match to watch and Victor was very concerned afterwards. Yesterday he did a lot of tests and has a heart monitor on for two days to make sure everything is ok.
Meanwhile, Manchester United Head Coach Raph Rangnick has also given a positive update on Victor Lindelof’s health condition, he says, “He (Lindelof) can’t even remember himself how it happened. I think he had a collision with another player and he had problems to breathe for more than 10 minutes, his heart rate was higher than normal and therefore he was a little bit shocked and he didn’t know how to deal with it.
“After the game, we did some check-ups with the doctor and it seems everything is okay.”
