Victor Lindelof names his greatest ever Manchester United teammate

Victor Lindelof has named Swedish compatriot Zlatan Ibrahimovic as his best ever Manchester United teammate. 

Ibrahimovic enjoyed his most influential season at Old Trafford the season before Lindelof arrived from Benfica.

Under Jose Mourinho, United won the Community Shield, League Cup and Europa League with Ibrahimovic playing a key role in each success before sustaining a serious knee injury.

The Swedish hero only played with Lindelof five times the following season and left for LA Galaxy the following summer.

But he certainly made his make during his brief spell in Manchester and was an obvious choice for the central defender.

“I’ve played with some really good players but, if I have to pick one, I’ll go for Zlatan,” he told the club’s official website, as quoted by the Metro.

I think he’s a great player and I got the chance to play with him in the national team and also in United. He’s the best player.

The iconic Ibrahimovic unsurprisingly became a cult hero pretty quickly at Old Trafford but it was a great shame that supporters did not get to see him in his prime.

The 38-year-old scored 29 goals in 53 appearances for the Reds in all competitions, and was the club’s top scorer in his first season.

He has now returned to old club AC Milan after conquering the MLS with LA Galaxy.
