Manchester United

Lindelof stands by Mourinho

2nd March 2019, 11:34 by Tom Hill

Manchester United centre-back Victor Lindelof claims he has no grudge against Jose Mourinho despite struggling under his stewardship.

The defender was one of Mourinho's first signings at Old Trafford when he moved from Benfica in 2017.

The Sweden international produced some below-par performances under Mourinho and was heavily criticised as a result by the fans.

Lindelof has slowly improved under new interim coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but he has refused to criticise his former boss.

He told the Daily Mail: "I will be always grateful to Jose. He bought me. I have nothing bad to say about him. When he wanted to buy other defenders, it was okay. I like the competition. You don't improve without it.

"I am lucky. I am mentally strong and can shut it all out. You want things to go well at a new club but life isn't that easy. So if you play badly you have to work more."
