Lindelof Keen On Starting Man United Adventure
Following previous reports regarding Manchester United’s agreement in acquiring Victor Lindelof from Benfica, on Wednesday, the deal has been made official.
The player himself talked to Man United’s official website saying his joy of eventually joining the Premier League outfit and is eager in starting his new journey at Old Trafford.
Lindelof also said that he already had some conversation with United’s current boss, Jose Mourinho, while adding that it will be an important opportunity for the Sweden international to work with the Portuguese manager.
Moreover, despite being known as a versatile defender, who can also play as right back, the former Benfica man insisted that he is still more comfortably in playing as central defender.
Already experiencing Champions League football with his previous club, Lindelof believes he now has more experience in playing with high level competitors as he learned many things during his European experience.
The 22-year-old can’t wait to start his pre-season tour with Man United as he emphasize its importance in getting to know more about his teammates along with the system that the Premier League giant are using.
Lindelof’s arrival is said to be an important one for Man United as now they could possible have a much more solid defensive line up compared to last season.
