Jose Mourinho Predicts Lindelof Weakness Before Sky Camera Perfectly Proves His Point

Jose Mourinho identified a weakness in Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof's game before the Sky cameras perfectly captured his point.

Ex-United boss Mourinho was speaking on Sky Sports as a pundit for Super Sunday and discussed his former player's strengths and weaknesses.

'The Red Devils' were beaten 2-0 and Jose raised issues before the game.

The 56-year-old stated,

"He (Lindelof) can be bullied one-on-one in the box.

"He's not very good in the air and (Harry) Maguire has that presence and physicality that's very important."

Mourinho signed Lindelof in 2017 from Benfica for a rumoured £30 million.

He has arguably been one of United's most consistent defenders since signing but he has still made a costly errors.

One that sticks out is a shocking display against Huddersfield Town which saw United fall to defeat 2-1 with both goals arguably being Lindelof's fault.



Defending on the road has been an issue for United as they hunt for their hunt for an away clean sheet this season goes on after conceding at West Ham.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Maguire have added solidity to the back-line but clean sheets are still hard to come by for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.

Mourinho also commented on United's performance at half-time and didn't hold back.

He said,

"It looks for me a sad game. It looks like a game of 'let's see what's going to happen."

Scathing words from the former United boss.
