Former Manchester United defender Mikael Silvestre has expressed satisfaction with Victor Lindelof’s consistency at the club.
Recall that the Sweden international made his 200th appearance for Manchester United against Everton on Sunday, having joined the Red Devils from Benfica in 2017.
Following injuries to Raphael Varane and Harry Maguire, Lindelof has become a nailed-on starter in recent games.
Silvestre believes that the centre-back can break into Erik ten Hag’s first-choice starting XI.

“I think Victor, since he joined United, has been consistent,” Silvestre told bettingexpert.
“Despite having different partners or managers, he’s maintained his level overall. Passing is one of his qualities. His vision, trying to find the interval, break the lines.
“In terms of challenging the other centre-backs, he’s making a case every time he plays.”
Following his move to Manchester United in 2017, Lindelöf announced his engagement to his long-time girlfriend Maja Nilsson. They got married at the end of May 2018, in Sweden. In March 2019, their first child was born.
While in his home city in August 2020, Lindelöf witnessed the robbery of a 90-year-old woman by a man on a bike; Lindelöf chased the thief on foot and managed to catch him, holding him until the police arrived. The police later thanked Lindelöf for his “quick and wise intervention”.
In January 2022, while playing the full 90 minutes against Brentford in a 3–1 win, Lindelöf’s Manchester home was broken into by intruders whilst he was on the pitch. His wife and two children were at home but hid in another room and were left unharmed.
Lindelöf received his first call up to the senior Sweden squad in March 2016 for friendlies against Turkey and Czech Republic. He debuted for the country in a 2–1 away loss to Turkey on 24 March 2016.
