The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern were delighted when their side signed Victor Lindelof over the summer. Highly-rated in Europe, the Swede was expected to come in and fill an immediate hole in the Man Utd defence. With a number of struggling players featuring at the back for Mourinho, he was a vital signing.
However, it hasn’t quite worked out how many, likely including Jose Mourinho, had planned. The defender has really failed to adjust to life in the English top flight, and he particularly struggled against Huddersfield over the weekend. Called upon from the bench, Mourinho placed his trust in the Swede, and he, unfortunately, was not able to deliver a performance.
Indeed, his display has earned a lot of critics in the Transfer Tavern, but in response to a recent Tweet in support of the defender by journalist Andy Mitten on Twitter, the Man Utd fans on Reddit have jumped to the defence of their Swedish defender.
Lindelöf has had a poor start at MU. No different to De Gea, Vidic, Evra or Pallister then. Support the lad. He's highly rated for a reason.

Urging both the fans and the team to give Lindelof time to adjust and to find his feet, the Man Utd fans are unanimous in their support for the Swede – with many expecting him to follow a similar path to David De Gea.
