​Lindelof lets Man Utd fans know exactly what to expect

New Manchester United signing Victor Lindelof has assured fans of his ability to be calm at the back.

The 22-year Swede completed a £30.7m switch from Benfica on Wednesday.

At his previous club, Lindelof was given the name 'The Iceman' for his 'cool persona on the field'.

When asked by the club website what sort of player he is, Lindelof replied: "I'm quite a calm player. I like to have the ball at my feet, I'm good with the ball and I'm quite good at reading the game.

"I think I give the players in front a calmness, they know I'm back there to protect them the best I can.

"My position is a centre back, but I've played right back before and I started my footballing career as a midfielder. I see myself as a central defender, and I feel most comfortable there."
