Lindegaard could miss rest of Man Utd season

Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard could be ruled out for the title run-in after suffering a setback on his ankle injury, The Daily Mail reports.

Sir Alex Ferguson believed that Lindegaard would be out for a month after suffering ankle ligament damage during training. The 27 year old, however, has made slow progress in his recovery and his comeback is on hold. David de Gea, who endured a shaky start to his United career, has come into good form and 21 year old Ben Amos is providing assured back-up whilst Lindegaard is sidelined.

The setback to the ankle is a big blow for Lindegaard, who had established himself as a regular at Old Trafford. Since joining from Norwegian side Aalesunds in January 2011, the 27 year old has enjoyed a fair chance at Man United and impressed fans with his confident, steady displays. Physios are now working with the Dane to build the strength back on the problem and Lindegaard could make a return at the very end of the season, if not pre-season.

Man United’s injury worries have been soothed in recent weeks and the impressive Antonio Valencia has returned to form on return. The Ecuadorian has spoken out about the return of Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez, who used to play with United. Valencia is dreading the possibility of a Tevez winner when the two sides meet each other on April 30th in what could be a pivotal game for the title race.
