Victor Lindelof believes his ability from set-pieces could help him to start repaying Manchester United’s €35 million investment in his talent.
The Sweden international has completed a big-money move from Benfica to become Jose Mourinho’s first signing of the 2017 summer transfer window.
I’m quite good at them so if I get an opportunity to take a free-kick, I think I’ll be there,” he told MUTV.
United already have plenty of options at dead-ball situations, with the likes of Juan Mata, Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford on their books.
Lindelof will, however, add to the threat posed from set-pieces and could follow in the footsteps of David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo by becoming a free-kick specialist at Old Trafford.
