Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof put his defensive skills to action as he defender an old woman from being robbed by a thief, days after his teammate Harry Maguire was arrested for defending his sister.
According to reports from Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, the incident happened in Lindelof’s home city of Vasteras, which is west of Stockholm on Monday and the Red Devils defender was thanked by Swedish police for catching a thief.
A police statement says the suspected perpetrator, who was riding a bicycle snatched the elderly woman’s bag, and Lindelof, who was in the vicinity, chased him, caught him, and pinned him down till the police arrived.
Harry Maguire, on the other hand, was arrested following a fight with 'Albanian gangster types' after one of them was rejected by his sister, according to reports from The SUN.
Manchester United had the third-best defensive record in the Premier League, conceding just 36 goals, their best for a long time, and the pairing for the most part of the season was Maguire and Lindelof.
