Victor Lindelof has been seeing a number of games this season and it seems the Sweden international has entered Jose Mourinho’s first team at Manchester United.

The 23-year-old had a good game against Juventus in the Champions League clash on Tuesday and also did well in the 2-2 draw against Chelsea.

Lindelof has revealed that he started out his career as a no 10 and usually loves to have the ball at his feet – something we’ve seen him do as a ball playing defender at Manchester United.

He told Inside United magazine in an interview: “I like to have the ball and start from the back, and I’ve always liked to have the ball at my feet, ever since I was young. I managed to develop that more in Portugal as well and got even better. I think that’s one of my best things.”

He then added: “Always. I just started as a no.10 and also played as a winger in the national team actually. Then no.8, no.6 and then I became a right-back and now central defender. I played all those positions.

“It’s nice, when I was younger I was a no.10 in a free role and I could move around a little bit. I like central midfield.”
