Sweden boss wants Mourinho to play Lindelof more

Sweden manager Janne Andersson is unhappy with the amount of playing time that defender Victor Lindelof is getting at Manchester United under Jose Mourinho.

The Swede joined the Red Devils over the summer from Benfica for a reported fee of £31million but he has failed to command a regular place in the starting line-up.

The 23-year-old has started once in the Champions League and once in the League Cup but hasn’t yet featured for United in the Premier League.

And Andersson wants Lindelof to be given more of a chance and hopes to see the centre-back in the team more in upcoming weeks.

“It’s a frustrating thing in this job, I cannot influence anything,” Andersson told Swedish radio station P5 Sthlm.

“It is clear that over time, I want all our players to play as much as possible, at as high a level as possible.

“So over time it’s a little unfortunate. But we’ll see, he has played some matches. We hope that he will be even closer to the team.”
