Victor Lindelof issues Manchester United injury update

Manchester Evening News Sports 2 months ago

Manchester United's Victor Lindelof is confident of making a swift recovery from the injury that kept him out of Sunday's 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United.

The Swede, who had previously been an ever-present for United in the Premier League this season, missed the clash with a back injury sustained in the previous game — the 0-0 draw with AZ Alkmaar.

His absence meant United were missing six first-team stars for the St James' Park encounter — with Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw, Jesse Lingard, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Anthony Martial sidelined — with detrimental consequences as Matty Longstaff netted the hosts' winner.

Lindelof was seen limping as United's players exited the stadium and boarded the team bus, though he has linked up with Sweden's national team for their upcoming games against Malta and Spain in Euro 2020 qualifying.

And speaking to media in his homeland, Lindelof gave an optimistic prognosis on his injury recovery.

 

"It happened on Thursday. I had a game and it seized up," he Lindelof told news outlet TV4. 

"I haven’t been able to train or take part in the last club game, so that’s it, but it gets better and better every day.

"I get good treatment here [at United] and good help with the national team."

 

Lindelof says he is coping with the injury and wants to feature for his country in the next week. It looks likely that he'll return in time for United's next game, the showdown with Liverpool on October 20th.

"I had very big problems with my back when I was younger, but in recent years it has been good," he added.

"The last time I had such a thing was about three years ago. I know what it is, I know my body."
