Jose Mourinho told Man United star doesn’t look like £30m signing
Kevin Kilbane isn't impressed with Manchester United star Victor Lindelof
Victor Lindelof doesn’t look like a £30m player, Kevin Kilbane has told Manchester United.
The Sweden international will be hoping to make more of an impression in his second season at Old Trafford.
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho opted to start Lindelof alongside Eric Bailly for their Premier League opener last weekend.
Lindelof was solid despite a couple of unconvincing moments as Manchester United eased to a 2-1 win over Leicester City in their opener.
The Swedish centre-half moved to Manchester United in a £30m deal from Portuguese giants Benfica in the 2017 summer transfer window.
However, Lindelof found his first-team opportunities limited last term, particularly in the Premier League with Phil Jones and Chris Smalling preferred.
Former Irish defender Kilbane believes Lindelof hasn’t been able to live up to his price tag at Old Trafford so far.
“He isn’t worth anywhere near £30m. He isn’t great on the ball,” Kilbane told Irish radio station Newstalk. “I don’t see it.”
Manchester United signed Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred, FC Porto defender Diogo Dalot and Stoke City goalkeeper Lee Grant this summer.
The Red Devil failed to win any silverware last season following a 1-0 loss to Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final.
