Tyrell Malacia, who recently signed with Manchester United, has received a lot of praise from Victor Lindelof after yet another strong preseason performance against Crystal Palace.
The win on Tuesday helped the Red Devils maintain their perfect record under new boss Erik ten Hag, and the full-back earned himself a 7/10 rating from 90 minutes for his effort. Man United has defeated Crystal Palace, Melbourne City, and their bitter rivals Liverpool thus far this month.
Speaking after the 3-1 win over Palace, Lindelof spoke highly of Malacia, stating: “He is looking really good.
“I’ve talked to him a little bit, and he seems like a great guy. I think he’s going to fit right in with the squad with all of the guys.
“I’m looking forward to training with him more and working with him, but he is looking really, really good.”
Ten Hag also spoke after the game, outlining how Manchester United can make improvements ahead of his first Premier League campaign in charge at Old Trafford: “The timing. When you start the press. For instance, I see still switches we can avoid and we can prepare a better press.
“And I think, also on the ball, we play well but you see, at the end, when it’s 2-0 or 3-0 up, the belief is increasing. And then, also on the ball, we can delay and we can postpone and we can fight opponents so they come out and we can speed up.”
