Victor Lindelof explains how Jose Mourinho will help him at Man United

by Tanveer Arayan

Victor Lindelof believes Jose Mourinho has what it takes to take his game to another level at Manchester United.

He was the first player through the door at Old Trafford this summer, as Ed Woodward managed to conclude talks with Benfica very early on.

The Swede arrived for €35 million, with the deal set to rise by €10m should certain performance-related clauses be met.

Speaking about his potential, Lindelof is happy with his start at Man United.

“There was a lot of talk and in the end I am here — and I am very happy to be here,” he said. “It has been good. All the lads in the team are helping a lot, so I am settling in quite good.

“It’s just been a week since we started training and played some games. It has been alright — I’m getting into it better and better every day.

“[Mourinho] is a very good manager. I like him a lot. He helped the players a lot when you speak to them, so I think I am going to develop a lot under him.”

He’s showcased already that he’ll be a vital part of the squad next season as he’s set to partner Eric Bailly in the centre of defence.

Lindelof will be looking forward to getting the 2017-18 campaign under way and at the age of 23, there’s no doubting the fact that he has all the attributes to become a top player at Old Trafford.
