Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick has, on Saturday evening, provided an update on the wellbeing of defender Victor Lindelof.

CR7 makes the difference

Swedish international Lindelof was handed his latest start this afternoon, as the Red Devils marked their return to Premier League action.

In the absence of sidelined summer addition Raphael Varane, the 27-year-old took his place alongside Harry Maguire at the heart of United’s backline at Carrow Road.

And, when all was said and done, Lindelof’s presence proved important, en route to an eventual 1-0 triumph for Rangnick’s troops.

A Cristiano Ronaldo spot-kick inside the closing fifteen minutes ultimately proved enough to guide United to their 3rd successive three-point haul, and a place alongside 4th-placed West Ham United in the Premier League table:

‘Seems okay’

Unfortunately, however, whilst his teammates managed to see out proceedings in East Anglia, the aforementioned Victor Lindelof was forced to make way, amid altogether concerning circumstances.

Late in the action, the Swede went to ground clutching his chest, whilst seemingly having trouble breathing.

In turn, after doing his utmost to carry on, it was ultimately decided that Lindelof should be hauled off, with Eric Bailly having replaced the former Benfica man for the game’s closing exchanges.

Ralf Rangnick, as a result, was drawn on Lindelof’s wellbeing during his post-match media duties this evening, and, thankfully, went on to provide a largely encouraging update on the situation:

‘He had a collision, he can’t even remember what it was. He was struggling to breathe — they did all the tests, he seems to be okay.’

Teammate David de Gea, meanwhile, was also asked for his take on Lindelof’s departure from proceedings at Carrow Road, and was keen to highlight previous cases involving Christian Eriksen and Sergio Aguero as good reason for every precaution to be taken:

‘I don’t know what’s going on, but he was feeling… [struggling] with his breathing.’

‘We saw it with [Christian] Eriksen and [Sergio] Aguero, and sometimes it’s a bit difficult to see your player acting like this.’

‘It was better to change, and I hope he’s completely fine.’

‘He had difficulty breathing and was feeling something strange. The game doesn’t matter, it’s football.’

‘First of all is life and to be safe.’
