The 23-year-old became Jose Mourinho‘s first signing of the summer back in June, arriving for a fee of £31m, but has so far struggled to adapt to the increased intensity of football under the Portuguese.
Mourinho noted soon after the UEFA Super Cup defeat to Real Madrid that Lindelof – who didn’t feature against either West Ham United or Swansea – will need time to adapt to the vicissitudes of the Premier League.
And Blind, as revealed by the Mail, has been doing his part to help Lindelof settle, taking a walk with him around the area surrounding the Lowry hotel – where the defender is still based – and pointing out various places of interest.
The Dutchman, unlike most United players, lives in the centre of Manchester as opposed to sleepy, middle-class neighbourhoods in the countryside and therefore serves as a reliable tour guide for United newcomers.
This is a small gesture, but one that points towards the superb harmony developing amongst the first team squad at United. And supporters will hope that, soon enough, Lindelof enters the swing of things in what is clearly a very harmonious dressing room under Mourinho.
