‘Manchester United are back, now it’s time to win trophies’ – Lindelof sees Champions League as ‘a minimum’


Victor Lindelof Manchester United 2019-20

Victor Lindelof considers Manchester United to be “back”, after wrapping up a Premier Leaguetop-four finish, but admits the time has arrived for them to “start winning trophies”.

A 2-0 win over the Foxes has secured Champions League football for 2020-21, but Lindelof says that is the “minimum” requirement for a club of United’s stature. For the Swedish defender, elite European competition has to be complemented by tangible success.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side remain in the hunt for Europa League glory in what has been an elongated campaign.

Lindelof told the club’s official website after helping to down Leicester: “When you play for this club, you should always play in the Champions League as a minimum.

“Now we’re back and it’s time for us to start winning trophies as well because we have to do that. We have one trophy left to win this season and that should always be the mentality, to win trophies. Our goal was to be back in the Champions League and now we have another one: to win the Europa League.”

United will return to thecontinental stage on August 5,in the second leg of theirEuropa League last-16 encounter with LASK.

Solskjaer’s side lead that contest 5-0 on aggregate, with a quarter-final clash with either Istanbul Basaksehir or FC Copenhagen lined up – with games from the last eight set to take place in Germany.

“It’s a trophy to win and this club should always be aiming for trophies,”Lindelof added on the Red Devils’ ambition. “It’s a great opportunity for us and to secure the Champions League spot today, it makes the players a little bit more calm.

“We go to Germany - after the game against LASK at home - and if we win, we can travel to Germany and I’m really looking forward to it.”
