Loads of Manchester United fans agree with club stance on Victor Lindelof

It has been reported that Manchester United have concerns over Victor Lindelof’s capabilities alongside Harry Maguire in central defence.

Lindelof, 25, signed a new contract in September and has played a prominent role in United’s impressive 11-game unbeaten run before football hit the pause button.

However, there are doubts as to whether the Swedish international is the long-term defensive partner for newly-instated captain Maguire.

According to ESPN, United are open to adding another centre-back to their ranks due to their concerns over Lindelof.

Lindelof has not convinced manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after a mixed season at Old Trafford. It is claimed that while Solskjaer is focusing on signing attackers in the summer transfer window, enquiries are being made about other central defenders.

United have two talented deputies in Eric Bailly and Axel Tuanzebe who should perhaps be afforded the opportunity to stake their claim as Maguire’s centre-back partner.

Lindelof is not expected to be sold after committing his long-term future to the club, but this report certainly raises some interesting questions.

And it appears that many United fans on social media share the club’s concerns over Lindelof. Some believe he is the weak link in Solskjaer’s defence and struggles against the more physically imposing forwards.
