Manchester United manager has lamented over Victor Lindelof’s injury after the centre-back finished their stalemate against Crystal palace in pain.

The injury could see the Swedish international miss United’s champions league game against Young Boys.

Lindelof featured for Sweden twice during the last international break, including against Turkey which he was withdrawn through illness.

Lindelof who has been one of United’s best player this season was given a starters shirt against Palace, turning in another excellent performance.

But in the last minutes of the game, the defender pulled what looked like a hamstring but powered on.

Quizzed for injury update on the player by MUTV, the Portuguese said: “I believe [he is injured]. I have to believe so.

“I always say this is the period of the injuries. If they are not injured with the national teams, they come to the clubs and are injured.

“He played against Russia three days ago or two days ago, but of course, we need him when he plays.

“He was probably our best player and was a brave lad, but he probably punished himself. I don’t know how long he will be out, but he is a fantastic example.”
