After playing in Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with Benfica in the Champions League last night, Anders Lindegaard has reiterated his desire to get the number one jersey.
Sir Alex Ferguson has already claimed that David de Gea is our first choice, although Lindegaard should expect plenty of appearances in the cup competitions.
“I am satisfied with my own performance,” said Lindegaard. “I am a bit sad that I didn’t save the first goal as I touched it with my fingertips. It would have been a great save, but apart from that I was satisfied with my performance. I had great fun and that is the most important part of why I play football. I enjoyed it very much and it was a great night. It is a great stadium to play in with a very loud audience. I could also hear our fans which was nice. This is why I came to United. To play in these kind of games. I have said one thousand times before – I am not here to pick my nose. Although I came from a small team in Norway called Aalesunds, I am here because I want to play, not because I want to sit on the bench.”
