Why Manchester United’s Victor Lindelof didn’t travel to face Atalanta


Why Manchester United's Victor Lindelof didn't travel to face Atalanta

Manchester United face Atalanta

Fresh off a resounding 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur, which effectively kept Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in place, Manchester United travel to Bergamo to face Atalanta in the Champions League.

With six points after three games, the Red Devils need a win to really increase their chances of qualifying, before facing Villareal and the Young Boys at Old Trafford in the last two group games.

It’s another game where his credentials – and Solskjaer’s – will be sorely tested, as he had to come back from 2-0 against a Cristiano Ronaldo to score all three points when the Serie A team was at Old Trafford.

As such, Manchester United have appointed their 25-man team to travel to face Gasperini’s side on Tuesday night.

Why Victor Lindelof didn’t travel revealed

Eagle-eyed Manchester United fans will have noticed that Swedish center-back Victor Lindelof was not named in the 25 brought to Italy, despite having been a key player for Manchester United in recent weeks.

And now, an explanation has been provided. According to ESPN’s Simon Peach, Lindelof is absent “after taking a hit in training” on Monday.

With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still on the ropes, he moved to a back three against Tottenham, which involved Lindelof alongside Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane. If you want to keep a back three, you will now be forced to move Luke Shaw to center back, or bring in underdog Eric Bailly to take Lindelof’s place.

It also raises questions about the implications for the Manchester derby, which will be played this weekend.

Can Ole survive this bump in the road?
