Midfielder Frida Maanum from Arsenal Stable After Collapse in Women’s League Cup Final

In a tense and dramatic Continental Cup final clash between Arsenal and Chelsea, Arsenal midfielder Frida Maanum suffered a sudden collapse on the pitch. The incident occurred during second-half stoppage time, leaving players and fans in shock.

Play was halted for seven minutes as medical staff rushed to attend to the 24-year-old Norway international. Maanum received immediate treatment on the field before being carefully stretchered off. The concern was palpable as her teammates, including Stina Blackstenius and Katie McCabe, gathered around.

Thankfully, Arsenal has confirmed that Maanum is conscious, talking, and in a stable condition. The club’s medical team will continue to closely monitor her progress. The incident cast a shadow over the match, but both teams displayed sportsmanship by remaining on the pitch during the ordeal.

In the 14th additional minute, play resumed with the scores still level at 0-0. Alessia Russo stepped in to replace Maanum, and the intensity of the game persisted.

Ultimately, Arsenal emerged victorious, securing a 1-0 win in extra time, with Blackstenius netting the decisive goal in the 26th minute. The celebration was bittersweet, as thoughts remained with Maanum’s well-being.
