Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard believes team-mate David de Gea will definitely be the number one at Old Trafford one day - but has warned the Spaniard he could face a long wait.

Lindegaard has played United's last three games, with De Gea seemingly paying the price for a poor performance in the 3-2 home defeat to Blackburn. And although the Dane is full of praise for his rival, he has no plans to give up his place in the side lightly.

Asked if he thought De Gea could one day be the best in the world, Lindegaard said: "Of course I do. He has extraordinary attributes, extremely explosive and powerful. He is only 21. His potential is massive and there is no doubt he will be United's best goalkeeper at some point. My job is to make sure it is not until I have retired. Which is in 10 years."
