MANCHESTER UNITED defender Victor Lindelof hilariously missed a header at exactly the same time as his former boss Jose Mourinho was criticising his aerial ability.

The Swedish centre half was going through the warm up before playing in the Premier League clash away at West Ham.

Meanwhile , in the Sky Sports studio, Mourinho along with Gary Neville and Roy Keane were talking about United's strengths and weaknesses in defence.

Unsurprisingly, Harry Maguire received a lot of the praise for being the dominant central defender the club have been crying out for for years.

Even Mourinho admitted he was desperate for that kind of player during his time in the hotseat.

Then Lindelof became the topic of conversation.

Mourinho said: "Lindelof is very, very good in some aspects of the game, but he can be bullied in a one versus one in the box.

"He is not especially good in the air and Maguire has that kind of presence and physicality that is important.

Almost on cue the cameras then panned to Lindelof as he was doing his pre-match prep showing him jumping, but completely missing, a header.

Next to him on the pitch, Maguire was making heading the ball look easy in comparison.

Interestingly it was Mourinho who signed Lindelof for £31million in June 2017 from Benfica.
