Jose Mourinho speaks out about Victor Lindelof's role at Manchester United

13 Agosto 2017

With Champions League football back at Old Trafford this season it appears that Mourinho is determined to use any possible artillery to achieve his and the club's goals.

"He wants more at the highest level". From the physical side of it, I think La Liga is not the Premier League in terms of the physicality. "He's not ready to play tomorrow, he's not something urgent, he's not something you are desperate to have it done, or not done".

'It was very clear by showing what he did last year was not enough for him.

The Swedish striker has been urged to take it easy and not over do it as he attempts to make a quick recovery from major knee surgery.

"My teams always had the goalscorer - the guy that scores more goals - but then we had the winger that scored 15 goals, the midfield player that scored 10 goals and we had the central defender that scored five goals".

Michael Carrick believes "things are on the up" at Manchester United ahead of the club's opening game of the season against West Ham.

Ibrahimovic recorded a goal every 137 minutes in his debut season for United last season.

This much was self evident, when United's new No.9 - the number which Ibrahimovic occupied last season - Romelu Lukaku deemed it necessary to seek the Swede's permission before taking his desired squad number.

"We have added three players, one defender, one midfielder and one attacking player", the Portuguese boss explained.

His American doctors are amazed by his progress, but have advised him to strike a balance between rest and rehabilitation. "I don't think I am in a position of moaning, crying, contesting or saying I am not happy". Can he still contribute to the team after his serious injury?
