Lindelof: Mourinho's calls convinced me

New Manchester United signing Victor Lindelof has revealed that phone calls from manager Jose Mourinho convinced him to join the Premier League club.

The Swede was confirmed as a Red Devils player on Wednesday, following his £30.7m transfer from Benfica, and has explained why he decided to make the move.

“We talked on the phone," the centre-back told Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet.

"He told me about the club and everything around it. He also talked about how he looks at me and why he wants me at the club.”

And, in a Q&A with MUTV, he added: "I’ve spoken to him. It was a good chat. It’s very important for me to hear what he has to say.

"It feels great to know the coach wants you to finally be here. It makes me very happy.

"He’s a great coach and for me to be able to work with him is a great opportunity for me.
