The Swedish defender is but to begin within the Premier League as he acclimatises to his new environment.
He used to be named within the beginning line-up for this night’s Carabao Cup conflict towards Burton at Old Trafford.

His personnel suggested him not to signal Lindelof, a call he now regrets.
“I think it was about two or three years ago when I first went in to Birmingham,” Rowett mentioned on Sky Sports.
“An agent known as us and mentioned Benfica are looking to get a couple of children out to show them to other ranges.
“We had a have a look at him, I put him to one of the crucial personnel and one of the crucial personnel felt he more than likely wasn’t reasonably tricky sufficient.
“Then he’s being touted round at £20-30million, so I assume we made a mistake.
“He were given directly again into Benfica’s facet in no time and naturally went energy to energy.”
