Lindelof in favour of winter break
Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof believes the introduction of a winter break in 2019/20 will be a positive thing for the Premier League.
A winter break is commonplace in most of Europe’s top leagues, and Lindelof, who signed for United two years ago today, believes it will only help the players and clubs in the Premier League.
“I think it’s good actually,”Lindelof told MUTV, in an interview at the end of the 2018/19 season.
“I think, if you look at the other countries, they always have a winter break and I think it’s important for the mind and the body as well to get a little bit of rest so you can keep going and work hard throughout the season.
“So yeah, I’m all for it. I know in England we’ve always played a lot during the winter while others have rested a little bit, so I I think it’s going to be good. I think people will enjoy it.”
“Well there’s a lot of excitement of course, because we haven’t seen each other for a long time,”he said.
“It’s always nice to see all the players and you know everyone is just excited to get started again, to work hard and get ready for the season.”
