Lindegaard eyes starting spot at Man Utd

Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard will use David De Gea’s Olympic commitments as a chance to show Sir Alex Ferguson why he should be No. 1 at Old Trafford, reports the Daily Mail.



The Danish stopper replaced De Gea after a serious of blunders early in the last Premier League season, and Lindegaard gave a series of impressive performances that suggested Ferguson would stick with him for the rest of the campaign. However an ankle injury in January ruled him out for the rest of the year.


With 21-year-old De Gea currently on Olympic duty with Spain, Lindegaard said: “I’ve said a million times, I’m not at United to pick my nose and I will never be at United just to sit on my money, I want to deserve the money I earn, and I want to deserve it by playing. I’ve never seen myself as a straight No.2.


Lindegaard will use the pre-season matches to convince Ferguson that he should be first-choice goalkeeper at Old Trafford, and the 28-year-old himself believes he can do it. He said: “If I don’t believe that I become No.1, then no-one else can believe in it. So, of course I believe in it.


While out injured, De Gea found confidence and produced stunning saves to warrant his reported £16m price tag, though Lindegaard remains a safe choice between the sticks and whoever starts in goal against Everton in the opening weekend will be focused in order for Manchester United to retain the Premier League crown.
