Manchester United’s Victor Lindelof has revealed that he brings calmness into the Red Devils’ lineup.
Manchester United splashed around £30million to secure the services of Victor Lindelof from Benfica over the summer and the Swedish international arrives to Old Trafford with a big price tag as well as a burgeoning reputation.
That said, Lindelof looked less than impressive during United’s pre-season matches in the United States against the likes of LA Galaxy and Real Madrid, and it will be interesting to see if the 23-year-old will be able to get back to his best ahead of the start of the Premier League campaign in less than a fortnight’s time.
Nonetheless, the defender certainly has the full faith of manager Jose Mourinho and the former Vasteras SK star has gone on to explain what he brings to the table at United during a recent interview ahead of the Red Devils’ showpiece UEFA Super Cup final against Madrid.
As quoted by the Daily Star, he said, “I think I’m quite a calm player. I like to have the ball at my feet. I think I’m quite good in that situation and at reading the game, I think I give my players in front of me quite a calmness, knowing I’m back there trying to protect them as well as I can.
“And it feels great to know the coach, Jose Mourinho, wanted me here for so long. That makes me very happy. He’s a great coach and for me to be able to work with him is a great opportunity for me.
“United are one of the biggest clubs in the world and always want to win titles. That’s also my goal. I’ve come here to win titles. That’s what the club wants.”
