Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof has followed up on his pledge to visit The Gambia to take the next step in his charity work.

Last week Lindelof explained he would be strengthening his links to charity Unicef, by visiting the country with his wife Maya.

He has delivered on his promise, being pictured in the African country to learn more about the charity’s work.

The Manchester United defender explained more detail about his charity work in a post on Instagram.

Lindelof is a Unicef Goodwill Ambassador for the organisation, now also known as the United Nations Children’s Fund.

The defender is on a short break from Manchester United during the World Cup, with his nation Sweden failing to qualify, having lost in the play-offs after finishing second in their group behind Spain.

Lindelof’s work gives Manchester United extra reason to be proud of him. The centre-back has been at Old Trafford since signing in 2017 and remains a key part of the squad, even if he is not currently a first choice selection when everybody is fit.

With Harry Maguire, Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane all at the World Cup, a fresh Lindelof will have a big part to play when the games resume.

Lindelof will be due in Spain early next month with United set to hold a training camp in the country in early December, with two friendly matches to be played.
