United keeper will ‘stay and fight’

Published Add your comment

With Edwin Van der Saar still intent on retiring, number two Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard is planning on staying and fighting for a regular position in the first squad.

"The question is more complex than just a yes or no answer," Lindegaard told Norwegian newspaper Sunmorposten, in regards to moving up to the number one Manchester United goalkeeper spot.

"There are many factors to consider but it is, of course, a goal.


"I don't think about [other keepers connected with Manchester United]. That's not on my table and I can't say one thing or another about it.”

Manchester United have been linked with many big name goalkeepers throughout Europe as they continue their quest to replace outgoing champion Van der Saar.

But Lindegaard believes he should be given a shot to prove himself, after the Denmark International featured in two FA Cup matches for Manchester United since moving from Norweigan club Aalesunds in the winter.

"The only thing I can do is show myself and prove to everyone that I should be the first-choice keeper,” the Manchester United reserve goalkeeper said.
