Mourinho Urges Fans To Be Patient With Victor Lindelof

The Manchester United £31 Million defender Victor Lindelof has been under intense pressure to perform according to his price tag but the Portuguese boss has urged the fans to give the defender time to settle into the club.

"It is step by step," he told a news conference after United's 3-0 win over Valerenga in Oslo on Sunday. "Benfica is a giant club.

"I always think players come from Benfica mentally ready. They are a big club and the responsibility to play for them makes players ready but the Portuguese league is different, different qualities."

Due to ban by UEFA Eric Bailey will be out of the Super Cup clash with real Madrid in Macedonia on the 8th leaving United with Lindelof, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones for the center back position. 

He added: "Benfica is one of the dominant teams, so he is used to playing with the ball rather than without it.

"He needs his time to develop. We are going to give him time. Such a young player needs time.
"Manchester United is a huge club, huge responsibility, [and the] Premier League is the same. Let's give him time but happy with what he is doing step by step."
