Lindelof isolating on third floor of his home as Man Utd star's wife cancels New Year's party after hiring private chef

VICTOR LINDELOF will ring in the New Year all by himself after wife Maja Nilsson revealed he's been banished to a separate floor of their home.

The Sweden captain, 27, tested positive for coronavirus earlier this month, shortly after having a heart monitor fitted following his health scare during the game against Norwich.

The Lindelof family haven't had much to cheer about over the festive season, with youngest son Francis also spending time in hospital after contracting viral meningitis.

And now, Maja has revealed their glitzy New Year's Eve party has been cancelled, with Lindelof isolating by himself on the third floor of their home.

The United defender had given a positive update on his health on Wednesday – saying he hoped to be back in action soon.

But, giving her own update on the Lindelof household, Maja wrote: "We are okay!

"Victor is upstairs isolating and me and the kiddos are downstairs and outside in the garden.

"I'm negative so far but are doing tests regularly.

"Just hoping I don't get it and especially the kids!

"Thank you guys for asking!"

But Maja confirmed she still felt close to her husband, as she could hear him 'playing PlayStation and shouting', despite being two floors up.

Unfortunately for the family, their New Year's Even plans were left in tatters.

Sharing a picture of herself in a woollen jacket, yoga pants and wellies, Maja added: "I guess this will be my NYE outfit.

"We were supposed to host a party for New Year's with all of our friends and I've bought everything from disco lights, hired a chef and got at least 50 helium balloons…

"I guess [eldest son] Ted Louie will have a ball though."

In a short video message on Instagram, Lindelof had earlier said: "I just want to check in real quick and say thank you for all your messages in the past couple of weeks.

"I really appreciate it, so thank you so much for that.

"At the moment, I'm just home, I feel fine and hopefully I can be back with the guys soon.

"Thank you so much once again, I hope you had a great Christmas, I hope you have a great New Year as well and stay safe."

Lindelof will miss United's game against Burnley on Thursday night, with Raphael Varane and Harry Maguire set to start.
