Manchester United confirm new appointments as Victor Lindelof suffers injury setback


Victor Lindelof of Manchester United in action during a first team training session at Carrington Training Ground on May 04, 2022 in Manchester, England.

Victor Lindelof has withdrawn from the Sweden squad due to a recurrent injury.

His miserable season with Manchester United was compounded by a World Cup play-off final defeat to Poland in March. The 27-year-old was named in the latest Sweden squad for their upcoming Nations League fixtures against Norway, Serbia and Slovenia.

However, the national team captain and first-choice defender has pulled out of the group due to a 'serious' knock which plagued him towards the end of the campaign at United. The nature of the problem has not been disclosed, but he will play no part in the June internationals.

United have made two new appointments at Youth-team level as part of their wider improvements to the sports science department. Alex Ouzounoglou has arrived at Carrington from Burnley, where he spent over a decade, and Matt Walker has joined the club from Cambridge United.

Ouzounoglou has taken up the role of Head of Athletic Development for the Youth Development Phase, working with players between the ages of 12 and 16. Walker will serve as Head of Athletic Development for the Professional Development Phase, working with players between the ages of 17 and 23.
