“I don’t dare say that” – National team manager worried about Man United player’s fitness



| Last Updated:


The Sweden national team are worried about the fitness of Victor Lindelöf as Manchester United continue their injury woes.

Erik ten Hag has been dealing with a full-blown injury crisis at Manchester United since the start of the season, with points seeing up to 11 players unavailable for selection.

Against Brentford, the United manager had his entire first-choice defensive line unavailable, with Victor Lindelöf having to fill in at left-back with all three first-team left-backs unavailable through injury.

Lindelöf was selected for Sweden’s upcoming internationals but was spotted hobbling at points during the Old Trafford win over Brentford on the weekend.

Swedish national team coach Janne Andersson has explained that he is worried about Lindelöf’s current fitness, refusing to rule out the possibility of major problems.

“I have had contact with Lindelof. Hopefully, there won’t be any major problems, but I don’t dare say that for sure,” said Andersson on Monday, quoted by Aftonbladet. “I do not have the medical team’s assessment, tonight I will find out exactly how it is.”

Sweden play Moldova in a friendly fixture on 12 October before facing off against Belgium in a EUROs qualifier tie on 16 October.

Erik ten Hag will no doubt hope that Lindelöf is rested for at least the friendly tie considering the injury problems that United continue to have at Old Trafford.
