Sweden manager Janne Andersson has expressed his frustrated with the lack of first team opportunities his key player Victor Lindelof is getting at Manchester United.
Lindelof has not featured regularly for Manchester United since making his big money move to Old Trafford from Benfica during the summer and many have now questioned the logic behind the Red Devils’ making a swoop for the defender.
The 23-year-old was initially believed to be a straight forward entry into the starting lineup following his arrival to United due to his impressive performances for Benfica last season but he has been pushed out of the first team picture due to Phil Jones and Eric Bailly’s fine form.
This lack of first team action for Lindelof seems to have left Sweden manager, Janne Andersson, very frustrated and he has made no secret of his desire to see the youngster play as regularly as possible in the foreseeable future.
Andersson told P5 Sthlm radio: “It’s a frustrating thing in this job, I cannot influence anything. It is clear that over time, I want all our players to play as much as possible, at as high a level as possible.
“So over time it’s a little unfortunate. But we’ll see, he has played some matches. We hope that he will be even closer to the team.”
Sweden’s qualification for the World Cup in Russia seems to be hanging in the balance at the moment and the fans would surely be feeling a similar sentiment that Andersson does at seeing one of their most important players in Lindelof struggling for game time at club level.
