Age old wisdom says that defenders defend, midfielders pass, wingers dribble and strikers score goals. However, we live in different times where a player is expected to take a variety of roles on the pitch and be a jack-of-all-trades.

In a recent clip going viral online amongst the Manchester United fans, shows new boy Victor Lindelof leaving a Portugal player chasing the dust during an outing with Sweden.
Manchester United fans are already pleased with the signing who cost the club a little over €35 million. 52 interceptions, 7 blocks and an impressive 119 clearances prove why Jose Mourinho has been trying to get his hands on the Swede since January.
Lindelof’s ball playing skills add to his already impressive CV. Manchester United seem to have found an able partner for Eric Bailly in defence as the club looks to fight for silverware on all four frontiers.
