​Lindelof happy with Man Utd debut and progress

Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof is happy with the way his career has begun with the Red Devils.

The Swede, who signed from Benfica last month, made his debut for United when he came on as a half-time substitute against LA Galaxy on the weekend.

"It felt very good, I am very happy to have made my debut for this great club," Lindelof told the club's website.

"We won as well so I am very happy. It felt good, it is the first game so it is a bit different. I am not used to playing with three at the back, but it felt good in a way and I am very happy.

"It is the first game and I am really looking forward to playing more games. It felt good. I like to play games, I like to train as well, but the games are more fun so I prefer the games."

After his first week of full training with his new club and teammates, the 23-year old is pleased with the progress.

"My first week has been very good," he said.

"All of the guys in the team have really helped me a lot. It feels really, really good."
