Manchester United: Fans rip into Victor Lindelof following Southampton draw

Manchester United fans have taken to Twitter to slam Victor Lindelof for his performance following their 1-1 draw with Southampton on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Devils started the game well at the St. Mary’s Stadium and found themselves ahead after just ten minutes when Daniel James continued his fine start to life at the club with his third goal in four matches (Transfermarkt).

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were unable to keep their fast-paced start going and found themselves pegged back with around 30 minutes of the game to go when Jannick Vestergaard rose above everyone else in the penalty box and fired a header past a helpless David De Gea (Sky Sports).

Fans appeared to be disappointed on Twitter with the final result, as many of them seemed to highlight the poor showing from Victor Lindelof as one of the reasons for their failure to secure all three points.

Rio Ferdinand slammed the Sweden international for his role in the goal whilst on punditry duty for BT Sport. He said (via The Metro): “Lindelof is the main culprit here. It’s a case of personal pride. They both have to say ‘have I done enough there?’ If Lindelof gets tight earlier on, Vestergaard can’t get a run on him.”

Indeed, it appears many of the club’s faithful on social media had the same viewpoint as the former centre-back, with plenty of them claiming the 25-year-old is not good enough to continue playing for them.

Here are just some of those reactions…
