Why Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof trains with another club


Victor Lindelof has started training with his former team in Sweden as the Manchester United defender seeks to maintain his fitness while the Premier League remains suspended.

Lindelof was authorized to train with Vasteras SK by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and joined the club he represented from 2007 to 2011 Wednesday morning.

The defender has returned to Sweden and his hometown of Vasteras after the Premier League season has ended and is expected to continue training with the second-tier team while he is still able to do so.

Lindelof contacted his former club to ask if he could train with them and has received the green light from VSK and Solskjaer, who wants to see his players stay in shape during the 2019/20 season.

The Swedish Superettan season should have started this weekend but has been suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, the country is not locked out, despite an increasing death toll which now stands at 695, which means that clubs can continue to train normally.

Prime Minister Stefan Löfven asked people to take individual responsibility for slowing the spread of the virus, only the most vulnerable must self-isolate.

United originally planned to return to training at Carrington later this week, but they were suspended when the season was suspended, with the UK still locked out until Easter Monday at the earliest.

Solskjaer’s players had received individual fitness routines to follow to maintain standards while away from the club, but Lindelof has benefited from training with a professional team and should continue on this path.

Lindelof has often returned to his hometown when the weather permits and has returned regularly to watch his old club play.
