Manchester United’s defensive problems have been evident all season. Things have gotten even worse recently, with injuries decimating that particular part of the field.
Now, though, United have been given a significant boost and it comes from Victor Lindelof. According to the Manchester Evening News, the Swede took to his Instagram stories to let fans know that he’s working hard in the gym to get himself back fit and available.
The centre-back posted the video along with the caption ‘getting there’ which suggests to me that he’s coming closer to being fit and available.
When you look at the defence that took to the field against Southampton, you’re hoping and praying that Lindelof is fit, which is telling considering just how poor he was throughout his debut season at the Theatre of Dreams.
After a real run in the team followed up by some excellent performances in the Premier League as well as the Champions League, Lindelof is starting to look like the player that United paid big money to acquire.
The sooner he is back fit, the better. I never thought I’d say it, but we’re actually missing him right now, and I cannot wait to see him back out on the football pitch.
