Lindelof on criticism: Why would I read the newspapers?

Victor Lindelof is adamant that he is on the right track at Manchester United.

Lindelof moved to United from Benfica for £30.75million in the summer, but has found playing opportunities difficult to come by.

He is yet to feature in the Premier League, and has been omitted from the matchday squad for six of seven fixtures.

He did play in the EFL Cup victory over Burton however, as well as both of United’s Champions League games so far.

The 23-year-old made his debut against Real Madrid in the Super Cup, with many highlighting his performance as poor.

“I feel no stress,” he told Expressen. “I’m in one of the world’s best clubs, it’s clear that it’s tough competition. But it may take the time it takes.

Asked about his relationship with Mourinho, the centre-half replied: “It’s between me and him. But we talk and have a good dialogue.”

The Swede was then asked whether he reads criticism levelled at him in the British newspapers, to which he said: “Why would I do that?

“I do not care what they are writing. I do not even know what they are writing.”
