Man Utd defender Lindelof, Olsen upsets Swedish reporters

Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof upset Swedish reporters after defeat to Turkey last night.

Both Lindelof and AS Roma goalkeeper Robin Olsen refused to talk to waiting media in the mixed zone.

"No, not today," Lindelöf would only say as he walked past the reporters.

Later, Sweden press chief Staffan Stjernholm said: "We in the national team will not force the players to interview in the mixed zone, but they are encouraged to do so. As Janne Andersson said earlier this week, we will evaluate what is happening here between the squad."

Asked if Olsen and Lindelof had explained their reasons, he added: "We have not talked about it. We will evaluate it when we are finished."
