Arsenal have provided a medical update on midfielder Frida Maanum following her collapse during the FA Women’s Continental League Cup Final on Easter Sunday. 

In a statement via their website, the club said Maanum has undergone extensive testing and support from their medical team and that the results have been reviewed by two leading cardiologists.

They have confirmed that there are no obvious cardiac causes found from the ‘thorough’ investigations so far.

According to Arsenal’s statement the Norweigan international has ‘subsequently had a monitoring device fitted to record her heart function and will now undergo a progressive return to training protocol’.

They have said that she will not train until she has been monitored for a full one-week period, and no decision will be made on her returning to play until this has been closely reviewed.

Maanum will not be joining up with the Norway national team for their upcoming Euros 2024 qualifiers against Finland and the Netherlands.
