Manchester United's Anders Lindegaard has ambitions of making the No.1 goalkeeping position his own next season.

Following the retirement of Edwin van der Sar the goalkeeping position at Old Trafford is up for grabs with Tomasz Kuszczak and Ben Amos also in contention.

And despite United being expected to complete a deal to bring David de Gea to the club, Lindegaard is hoping to prove his worth during this summer's pre-season tour in America.


“In the USA, it’s going to be especially important for the goalkeepers to play well because Edwin’s retired and the rest of us are fighting for that jersey.

“I know it’s going to be a lot of hard work but I’m looking forward to it very much.

“When you come from a small side in Norway you can’t prepare yourself for how big Manchester United is. But, on the other hand, it has the same mechanisms as any other club – people talk about the same things, they interact in the same way. There’s nothing different in that respect – it’s just that this club is a million times bigger.

“I’m enjoying my time in Manchester very much – more and more with each day that passes, actually. I’m a happy human being at the moment and that’s what life is all about.”
