Victor Lindelof makes honest admission to Man United fans
Victor Lindelof lifts the lid on his struggles to adapt to life in the Premier League with Manchester United
Victor Lindelof has admitted that he has struggled to cope with the rigours of English football since his transfer to Manchester United in the summer.
The Swedish defender has been getting used to life at Old Trafford since signing from Portuguese side Benfica in the summer transfer window.
Lindelof has struggled to hold down a regular starting spot in the first team under Jose Mourinho so far this season as he bids to adapt to life in England as quickly as possible.
The defender will be hoping to break into the first team and become a regular fixture at Old Trafford in the coming weeks and months as the hectic festive period in the Premier League looms large.
The 23-year-old only started two of Manchester United’s first 13 Premier League games so far this season.
Now, the defender has lifted the lid on what has been different for him at Old Trafford since his move from Benfica.
Speaking to Manchester United’s website, Lindelof said: “Obviously, the league here is much tougher than Portugal.
“Over there, you have good teams but you have the top teams that are always the favourites in every game and winning almost every game.
“Here, it’s much more difficult and you have tough games every week – that’s the biggest the change, the competitiveness you have in the league.”
The defender will be hoping to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils return to Premier League action on Saturday with a crunch clash against Arsenal at The Emirates.
The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last season.
