Victor Lindelof has come out in support of struggling Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, branding the Norwegian "very special".

Solskjaer has overseen a nightmare start to the season for United, who have two wins from their last 13 Premier League outings and sit just two points above the relegation zone.

Some reports have suggested that losing to Norwich City on November 27 would culminate in the 46-year-old being sacked by the club.

When asked about what he thought of the United boss, Lindelof told Expressen: "He's very good. A coach that is easy to talk to and discuss with and who has a good balance when he should be tough and when he should not be tough.

"Since then he has been in the club himself as a player and knows what it takes to succeed there and he has a lot of control.

"You are used to criticism. When you are in United, everything gets much bigger. There are more people watching, more people writing about the club than any other club."

Other reports have claimed that, despite the club's poor form, United's board remains fully behind Solskjaer and will not make a knee-jerk decision to sack him over the next few weeks.

United continue to back the manager's vision of building a long-term project at Old Trafford based on the championing of academy players who can develop over several years.
