The World Cup ended with a host of headlines in honour of Paul Pogba, but the imperious midfielder was far from the only United player to excel in Russia…
“Victor has been the pick of the bunch,”remarked Lindelof’s compatriot and ex-United midfielder Bojan Djordjic.
“People speak about our captain, Granqvist, because he’s been like a cult hero after Zlatan [Ibrahimovic] and all that, but Victor has been amazing.”
“His technique, left and right foot, is great,”purred Jesse Lingard, when we spoke to him in December 2017.
“He plays the ball forward and will always look for that forward pass, which is obviously good for us attackers.”
