United new boy Victor Lindelof reveals thoughts on back three

Date Posted,July 15, 2017

Victor Lindelof admits he is not familiar with playing in a back three after making his Manchester United debut.

The Red Devils started their pre-season schedule with a 5-2 win over LA Galaxy at the StubHub Center.

Lindelof played the second half of the clash, alongside Eric Bailly and Axel Tuanzebe in defence.

After the clash, Jose Mourinho admitted he would continue to experiment with the system in pre-season as his side gear up for the Premier League campaign.

And Lindelof said: “I am not used to playing with three at the back, but it felt good in a way and I am very happy.

“It is the first game and I am really looking forward to playing more games.”

Lindelof went on to hail Marcus Rashford, who outshone Romelu Lukaku with a brace.

“Marcus is a very good player so I am very happy for him to score,” he told MUTV.

“But Romelu is very strong and it is just a matter of time before he finds the net as well.”
