- Victor Lindelof is still upset with Maguire after their World Cup exit
- Maguire and Dele Alli both got on the score sheet as England defeated Sweden
- Both United defenders however admit they enjoy playing together
Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof maintained that he is still upset with his team captain Harry Maguire who wrecked his dreams at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, SunSport reports.
The Swede explains that he still gets hurt anytime he remembers how his Maguire rose highest to head home the opening goal in the 30th minute of their game in the quarterfinal.
Dele Alli then put the game beyond Lindelof’s side with a sublime finish in the 58th minute to shatter their dreams of world Cup semis.
Two years later, it is still tough for the Swede defender as the memories are still fresh according to him and then Maguire joined the Manchester outfit last summer for a record £80m.
"I’m still a bit mad at him for that!” Lindelof said.
“But I thought he was a great player back then and it’s great to have him on my team.”
However Maguire still relishes the moment and says it is a memorable past, but he enjoys playing alongside Lindelof now.
“To score the first goal was brilliant. A lot of big games nowadays are decided by set-play goals and it was a tight game that day,” Maguire said.
“We managed to get the first one and it’s a great memory for me."
Legit.ng earlier reported that following a clear inconsistent start to the 2019/20 campaign, Man United appear to have rediscovered their rhythm.
United have recorded a string of impressive results in recent weeks, including their 2-0 famous win over rivals, Man City.
The win fired them to fifth on the league charts and now sit just three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea who have 48.
The Red Devils are still in contention for both the Europa League and the FA Cup and a Champions League qualification look like a real possibility.
But despite the significant progress, the Old Trafford dwellers are bound to continue rebuilding next season.
Man United look set for a busy summer transfer window after an inconsistent campaign.
