‘Yesterday he did a lot of tests and has a heart monitor on for two days to make sure everything is OK.
[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.
‘Everything seems to be OK as luck would have it and we are waiting for answers to the last tests that will end tomorrow.’
Worried United team-mates rushed to the Swedish defender’s aid when he dropped to his haunches under no pressure during the clash at Carrow Road on Saturday.
Medics also raced on to the pitch as the stricken Lindelof pointed to his chest, complaining that he was struggling to breathe.
One team-mate, David de Gea, said it brought memories of the Euros flooding back when Denmark’s Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 on the pitch as Denmark played Finland.
The Spain international also reference Sergio Aguero, who is expected to announce his retirement this week after he collapsed on the field while playing for Barcelona.
‘We’ve seen some players who are feeling unwell,’ he told Sky Sports afterwards.
‘We’ve already seen Eriksen, Aguero, so it’s difficult to see your player acting like this. It was better to change. I hope he’s completely fine. The game, the football doesn’t matter. It’s life, to be safe.’
