After starting Anders Lindegaard in last night’s draw away to Benfica, Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed that David de Gea will be back in the team on Sunday.
Like with Tomasz Kuszczak last season, Lindegaard will likely play our Champions League group stage and domestic cup games, whilst de Gea will remain our number one in the league.
“We have two great goalkeepers,” said Ferguson. “We were always going to share it and David will play on Sunday against Chelsea and possibly Anders will play at Leeds next Tuesday, depending upon how we see the situation with Ben Amos, who needs some game time also. There are opportunities to spread the load. The English league is so frenetic. Coming into that, as a young goalkeeper, there will be times when we can give him a break. Tonight was a good moment because he had a fantastic game on Saturday.”
