In a very strange coincidence in the world of football, Manchester United’s players have sure synced in more ways than just on the field. With the baby boom exploding this season for the ‘Red Devils’ backstage, the newest addition is Swiss defender Victor Lindelof.
The Swiss-born united star who was on international duty asked to be omitted from the line up due to ‘personal reasons’. Not announcing the good news directly, it was learned from wife Maja Nilsson, who keeps her fans on Instagram updated with the story, that the baby is due early next month.
Lindelof has possibly the happiest reason to miss out on games with the couple expecting soon. But he is not the first of the season. The United regular joins a list of other Reds who are expecting heirs soon.
England regular and Manchester United star Chris Smalling also brought in the new year with good news. With wife Sam Cooke announcing on New Year’s eve that the couple will be expecting their child this year by showing off her baby belly.
The couple got hitched back in 2017, and while ‘long-legs’ daddy-to-be gets ready for fatherhood, he’s sure to have lots to talk about with fellow teammates on the subject.
Another player on the list of expected fathers-to-be is Italian defender Matteo Darmian. The 29-year-old will become a first-time father with teenage sweetheart Francesca Cormanni, who he married in 2017.
While the few young gentlemen prepare for a new journey, some of the reds have already had babies this season. One of which is French superstar Paul Pogba.
The 25-year-old World Cup winner who keeps his private life away from the media recently became a dad with girlfriend Maria Salaues.
One more Red Devil who joined the list was Brazillian international Fred. The playmaker became a dad with wife Monique Salum who gave birth to baby boy Benjamin in January this year.
Manchester United ace Nemanja Matic also became a dad for the third time this year with wife Aleksandra in January. The couple has three children now, Philip, Tea and the newborn daughter Anika.
Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku also became a father when he traveled to America to welcome his firstborn son Romeo during the holiday season last year in December. The United frontman missed two games for the same reason.
It’s raining babies for the Old Trafford players this season and we can only suspect a new team in the making.
