Victor Lindelof has high hopes for Anthony Elanga at Manchester United
The former is an established star at the club while the latter is still making waves as a promising talent. Elanga made his debut for the club last season and impressed during his brief sojourns.
“He will have a great future.”
The 19-year-old, making just his second start for the senior side, opened the scoring on the final day of the season against Wolverhampton Wanderers. His opener helped United finish the season unbeaten away from home – just the third team in English history to manage that feat.
Elanga continued his fine run of form into the international break as well, scoring on his debut for Sweden’s U21s in a friendly victory over Finland last week.
“He has many fine qualities as a player and he is still young.”
With his star continuing to rise, Lindelof has now expressed his faith in the youngster’s abilities. Having shared the training ground with him, the centre-back has a good idea of Elanga’s talent and praised his work ethic.
“It is very fun for him, he is a kind and good guy who works hard and wants to learn.”
Held in high regard!
Lindelof’s faith in Elanga appears to be shared by those at United. He was one of the few talented youngsters who penned a new contract last season.
One of the best young talents at the club, Elanga was the recipient of the Jimmy Murphy Youth Team Player of the Year award in 2019/20. Elanga has been at the club since the age of 12, steadily rising through the ranks with distinction.

The last Swedish attacker to make a name for himself at Old Trafford was Zlatan Ibrahimovic. If Elanga can contribute half as much as the enigmatic striker, he will be an excellent player for us.
