Man United defender praises his ‘tough’ teammate
Sweden and Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof has praised midfielder Marouane Fellaini.
The centre-back who has been regularly deployed alongside Chris Smalling at the heart of Man United backline says he is always comfortable when he has the giant Belgian in front of him. Fellaini, to Lindelof, provides game security that few players can offer.
“It’s always good to have a player like Marouane in front of you. He gives you a bit of security, and he’s a player who works really hard and helps everyone on the pitch.
“His versatility is very useful for us as a team because we can use him in various roles, and for a player, it’s always good to be able to play in different positions. It’s also showing his qualities as a footballer because he can play these different positions and switch his thinking for different roles; there aren’t many players who can do that. It’s a great thing for him to have.” Lindelof told MUTV.
“I enjoy facing him in training because he’s a tough opponent. He always works very hard, always gives 100 per cent in every duel, so it’s very good to train against him because you always have to be on your toes and totally focused.” Lindelof said.
