Lindelof getting grasp of the Premier League- Brown
Former Manchester United defender Wes Brown claims Victor Lindelof “has started to understand what it takes in English football” and has compared the Swede to club legend Nemanja Vidic.
Lindelof, 24, moved to Old Trafford in 2017 for £31million in the summer of 2017 but struggled with the intensity of the Premier League in his first season.
His form has improved over the last few months and has really gone up another gear since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho at the Old Trafford helm.
Lindelof has started Solskjaer’s first six Premier League games in charge of the club – which United have all won.
And Brown, who won 13 honours in 15 years at the club, suggested Lindelof’s development in the English game is similar to how Vidic, who Brown played alongside, settled in.
Brown said: “Lindelof has started to understand what it takes in English football, it was similar to Vidic adapting to the English game.
“It’s difficult and different adjusting to the league, and moving to a new country. It’s quicker and stronger in certain areas and sometimes it takes time to adjust. I never thought he was bad, but he’s started to understand more and taken everything in, you can now see the class coming out.
