Summer signing Victor Lindelof was proud to make his unofficial Manchester United debut in the 5-2 win over LA Galaxy in the opening game of the pre-season tour of America.
He’s already looking forward to making more appearances following a calm and composed 45 minutes at the StubHub Center on Saturday night alongside Eric Bailly and Axel Tuanzebe.
Speaking about his first game in a United shirt, Lindelof couldn’t be any happier.
“It felt very good, I am very happy to have made my debut for this great club,” Lindelof told MUTV. “We won as well so I am very happy. It felt good, it is the first game so it is a bit different. I am not used to playing with three at the back, but it felt good in a way and I am very happy.
“It is the first game and I am really looking forward to playing more games. It felt good. I like to play games, I like to train as well, but the games are more fun so I prefer the games.”
On the subject of Rashford and fellow debutant Romelu Lukaku, Victor said: “Marcus is a very good player so I am very happy for him to score. Romelu is also a very good player. He is very, very strong and has some really good qualities so it is just a matter of time before he finds the net as well.”
“My first week has been very good,” he concluded. “All of the guys in the team have really helped me a lot. It feels really, really good.”
He’s exactly the type of player we’ve needed at United and following a remarkable performance against LA Galaxy, will hope to continue building a strong partnership with Eric Bailly.
