Jose Mourinho told ‘quality’ Man United signing will shine at Old Trafford
Victor Lindelof will develop into a top player for Manchester United, according to Benfica manager Rui Vitoria
Victor Lindelof will prove himself as a key player for Manchester United in the coming seasons, according to Benfica manager Rui Vitoria.
The Swedish defender has made something of a slow start to life at Old Trafford since his transfer to the Premier League club from Benfica in the summer.
The 23-year-old has struggled to hold down a regular spot in the first team at Old Trafford and has only made a single substitute appearance in the Premier League so far this season.
The centre-half will be hoping to hold down a regular spot in the first team at Old Trafford in the seasons to come.
And Benfica manager Vitoria is convince that Lindelof will end up proving himself at Old Trafford in the future.
Vitoria is quoted as saying by the Daily Star: “He is a very high quality player, he has been playing with Jose Mourinho.
“Of course when you move from the Portuguese championship to an English championship, so there is a phase, a stage of adaptation.
“But I do foresee that in the future Lindelof will be a player of Jose Mourinho’s team. He has a lot of value, he is very cold, very competitive and has great deal of quality.”
Manchester United return to Premier League action on Saturday afternoon when they take on newly-promoted Huddersfield.
The Red Devils are aiming to get back to winning ways in the top flight after their goalless draw with Liverpool at Anfield last weekend.
That result left Jose Mourinho’s men second in the table and two points behind leaders Manchester City after eight games of the new campaign.
