Man United fringe man talks about limited chances

Lindegaard

Anders Lindegaard has admitted that he was glad to feature against Newcastle recently but is staying tight-lipped on his future.

At a time Anders Lindegaard was being tipped as the goalkeeper to follow Edwin van der Sar in the Manchester United goal.

Despite being used in a squad rotation system at times under Sir Alex Ferguson, the giant Dane has found first-team opportunities fleeting since the arrival of David Moyes.

With David De Gea as the Red Devils’ number one, the Scandinavian has only made one Premier League start this season – against Newcastle recently.

Lindegaard has spoken out about his future and admits that he is keen to get more game time soon.

"It was nice to get the opportunity to play for the first time in almost half of a year." Lindegaard told TV3.

"It has been a long time between outings, you can do the maths yourself.

"I am like David and I would like to play in every match. I haven't done that this season.

"But when that is said, I am happy to get the chance to play. You always want to play, but that [my future] is not something I want to discuss with you now."

De Gea’s excellent form has kept Lindegaard out of the United team and it is difficult to see a way back into the fold for the Dane.

With the end of the season approaching, Lindegaard will surely be considering his future and deciding whether to move elsewhere in a bid to play more regularly.
