Video: Victor Lindelof’s Penalty Tackle Gets Worse With Every Watch

Victor Lindelof conceding a penalty in Manchester United‘s friendly with Real Madrid last night gets worse with every watch.

The Swedish defender got another run out for his new team after signing in a £31million move from Benfica earlier this summer.

He’s showed up well in games against LA Galaxy, Real Salt Lake and Manchester City, but wasn’t as good in last night’s 1-1 draw with Real Madrid in California.

And that’s thanks in a big part to his ridiculous tackle on Madrid’s Theo Hernandez in the second half.

It’s bad when you first see it, but watching it over and over it just gets worse:

What exactly was Lindelof thinking as he ran towards that ball?

If that wasn’t bad enough for the Swede, Madrid scored and earned a 1-1 draw to force a penalty shootout – and Lindelof missed his spotkick.

Fortunately, though, United managed to win the shootout after some woeful Madrid penalties and it continues their winning run throughout pre-season.
