‘Learning’ Victor Lindelof talks about life at Manchester United

Fringe player Victor Lindelof says everyone has helped at Manchester United, including the boss Jose Mourinho, since he arrived from Benfica.

The centre-back signed for United for £30.75million in the summer, but he has failed to get himself into the first team and has made just four Premier League starts this season.

He has though started the last four Premier League games with Phil Jones and Eric Bailly injured, while he has three Champions League starts to his name and he looks set to start against CSKA on Tuesday night.

Asked about life at Old Trafford, in comparison to Benfica, he told today’s press call: “The league you play in, the Premier League is a tougher league than in Portugal.

“They are two big clubs, here in Manchester United is a bigger club, one of the biggest in the world and you have more eyes watching you. That is the biggest difference.

“We are all professionals and we are focused on the game tomorrow. We want to win tomorrow. I can only speak for myself but I think all the guys are only focused on tomorrow and after that we focus on the derby game.”

Lindelof revealed his time out of the team has given him the opportunity to learn.

“Always when you come to a new club, you have to learn. I learn every day. The manager has been very good for me,” added Lindelof.

“I’m always happy to help the team in any way I can. I’m very pleased to be able to help on the pitch and to get some good results.

Asked if he has been helped by anyone in particular at Old Trafford, he replied: “The whole team. We always try and help each other. Everyone has helped me in a lot of ways.”
