Victor Lindelof Hits Jon Bautista With A Brutal Flying Knee As He Denies Axel Tuanzebe Goal

Victor Lindelof inadvertently did his best Jorge Masvidal impression by hitting Jon Bautista with a brutal flying knee as he denied Axel Tuanzebe of a special moment.

Tuanzebe thought he had scored his first Manchester United goal with a bullet header from a corner until VAR ruled it out.

The goal did NOT stand after Lindelof fouled Bautista moments before Tuanzebe headed home.

The Swede jumped for the ball but missed it and connected a devastating knee flush to the Real Sociedad forward's face.

The player immediately hit the deck as he clutched his face with Man United's goal eventually scratched off while Lindelof was shown a yellow card.

Needless to say, his reckless move sent social media wild.

One Twitter user wrote: "Would have been a lovely goal if Lindelof didn't think he was Jeff fucking Hardy."

A second tweeted: "Nice one Lindelof, would've been a nice goal if you didn't turn into f**king Jorge Masvidal."

A third added: "Lindelof just hit a flying knee in a soccer match."

Lindelof's moment of madness did not prove costly as a result of last week's convincing win in Italy.

The Red Devils go through to the next round of the Europa League after beating Sociedad 4-0 on aggregate.
