Although he initially struggled, he has received a new lease of life under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Lindelof went on to pen an extension to his contract in 2019. (h/t BBC)
His new terms expire in 2024, with the option of a further year added on. Lindelof has formed a good partnership alongside Harry Maguire at the heart of the United defense.
A number of fans took to Twitter to react to the player’s anniversary. Opinion regarding his performances have been a mixed bag.
We are hopeful he will win over his detractors in the years to come. Until then let us take a look at some of the reactions.

Cool and has an eye for a pass always looking for the right pass forward.
Underrated. Can even play him as a cdm with Bailly and Maguire behind— Ice Cold ⚔️🗡️ (@HitlerRepsMe) June 14, 2020
If he was a bit stronger in the air and more dominating he’d be world class, reads the game beautifully. Harry maguire get him taught 😁— Neal Tyson (@NealTyson5) June 14, 2020
Still remember that match in 2018/19 against Crystal Palace where he kept playing even after injuring his leg ❤️— Patty (@MUFCPatty) June 14, 2020
Still not lived up to expectations 😒— Abdulhakim Kambo (@Ahkam001) June 14, 2020
Good on the ball…but he needs drastically to work on his arial ability, easily getting bullied in air by physical players.. need to judge aerial passes batter for reaching the next level..— whydoUcare (@Rodio17) June 14, 2020

I really like him and I wish him the best
And this season he became a liability! Such a shame as I really liked him at first, but not his strongest season at all. Fingers crossed he’s better when we start back up again this week 🤞🏻— Charlotte Fillery (@CharlotteFille2) June 14, 2020
