 Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof has praised his club’s recent signing Tyrell Malacia, after being impressed by the left back’s personality and attitude.

Malacia became Erik ten Hag’s first signing as Manchester United manager when he joined from Ajax earlier this month for £13 million.

The 22-year-old has made a couple of appearances in United’s pre-season friendlies, but has mainly turned heads through his performances in training.

‘He is looking really good,’ Lindelof told MUTV of Malacia, ‘I’ve talked to him a little bit, and he seems like a great guy. I think he’s going to fit right in with the squad with all of the guys.

‘I’m looking forward to training with him more and working with him, but he is looking really, really good.’

The Swedish defender is feeling refreshed after a summer break and is excited for the new season under ten Hag. He continued: ‘It was great to have some time off over the summer and of course when I came back I felt fresh and ready and yeah it’s been feeling good.

‘Training has been very good. I think we have stepped up a lot and it’s hard, like it should be in pre-season. And he [Erik ten Hag] demands a lot and I think it’s been absolutely great, so yeah, a pleasure.

‘Everyone is looking forward to the new season and we are doing everything we can to prepare the best we can for that game and for the rest of the season.’

United get their Premier League campaign underway against Brighton on Sunday, August 7.
