HOW I COMMUNICATE WITH OLE
With his fellow Scandinavian, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, now the permanent manager at Old Trafford, Lindelof has hailed the influence the Norwegian has had at the club since his arrival – initially as caretaker boss – back in December.
“He’s been great to all the players,“ Victor said. ”He’s helped me a lot as well. Like I always say, he’s come in with a big smile. He talked to me and told me to express myself on the pitch and do the things that I’m good at. I think I have been doing that a lot. But its always nice to hear that from your coach because it gives you a little more confidence.”
‘The Iceman’ also told us that he talks to Solskjaer in Swedish and Ole talks to him in Norwegian.
He said: “I speak to him in Swedish and he speaks in Norwegian back to me. It’s nice to speak a bit of Swedish. They’re quite similar. It’s just how you pronounce words. Some words are different, but it’s not a problem. I understand everything he says. The same’s with him.”
