A month ago, MU defender Victor Lindelof had a respiratory problem during the MU match against Norwich. Midway through the second half, Lindelof suddenly had trouble breathing and stopped playing. After that, the Swede did not remember what happened on the pitch.

Why MU must wear a heart monitor and perform a series of tests to assess whether it is still possible to return to the pitch. As a result, Lindelof was fine and returned to the field for MU. Some sources said that Lindelof had heart problems because of the Covid-19 vaccine. However, the MU side did not confirm this information.

Before that, the football village was shaken by the news that Sergio Aguero was forced to retire because of a heart problem. The former Argentina player has just arrived at Camp Nou in the summer of 2021 and played for Barca for 5 matches, but had to reluctantly stop when he received advice from the Barca medical team.
