Anders Lindegaard remains confident that he will be given the chance to prove his worth at Manchester United this season reports

The 27-year-old stopper turned in an impressive performance in the recent 1-1 draw with Benfica in the club's UEFA Champions League opener, but could only watch from the bench as United drew 3-3 with FC Basel last night.

Lindegaard recently stressed his desire to remain in the Manchester United first-team, after doubts were raised over the capabilities of Sir Alex Ferguson's first-choice keeper David De Gea, saying, "I am here because I want to be No. 1."

But the Danish star has found opportunities difficult to come by, after Red Devils youngster Ben Amos was selected for the Carling Cup encounter with Leeds, and De Gea has played in every other game.


"I've had no explanation," he told TV2 Sport as to why he wasn't selected for last night's Old Trafford encounter. "That's the way it is.

"You can't play two goalkeepers, but I will get some more playing time this season. You're always disappointed when you don't play.

"I am still full of confidence, though, because I have a lot of faith in the club and will play plenty of games."
