Manchester United’s Anthony Elanga has come out to support Sweden manager Janne Andersson after the country’s poor run in this calendar year.

Sweden have managed only two wins, which includes a 2-0 victory over Slovenia in the UEFA Nations League in June. That has been their only win of this edition of the tournament.

The Manchester United forward came off the bench in his national team’s games against Serbia and Slovenia this month.

Sweden failed to beat the latter and a 1-1 draw against Serbia on Tuesday meant they will finish bottom of the table, resulting in their relegation to League C of the UEFA Nations League.

Despite going without a win in the last five matches, the Red Devils player has backed Andersson to continue with Sweden.

“We’ve had a tough time, but we can’t just complain about Janne. We win together and lose together. We just have to check what we did wrong and do better in the future,” the 20-year-old said, as quoted by Aftonbladet.

Meanwhile, Elanga’s compatriot and Manchester United teammate, Victor Lindelöf, has also come out in defence of Andersson.

“We all have very, very high confidence in Janne,” the centre-back said.

Sweden have failed to qualify for the Qatar World Cup and their next fixture is a friendly against Mexico in November. Whether Andersson will be in charge for that clash remains to be seen.
