Lindegaard: United Take Every Opponent Seriously

Following another game for United in last night’s Champions League victory in Romania, Anders Lindegaard has spoken highly of the way our club prepare for every game.

“One of the things that impressed me most when I came to United is that every game is handled the same way,” he said. “It doesn’t matter whether it is Crawley at home or Chelsea away. It has always been very serious. It seems like one of the cornerstones of this club is to always take your opponent seriously. It is going to be a normal build-up to the City game, as it would be with any other.”

Lindegaard is currently behind David de Gea in pecking order at United, despite his aspirations to eventually become our number one, although doesn’t let this get to him.

“I don’t feel under pressure,” he added. “Dealing with stuff like that is a massive thing at Manchester United. It is a big part of the game, not only because I am a goalkeeper but also as it is a constant at clubs of this size. We always have to win. I prepare the same, whether it is a training game in the United States or a Champions League game in Romania or Portugal. That is part of the job of being a goalkeeper. One of the important steps to success is always to be focused and concentrated.”

    Hello pal!

    where’s our reactions to the pool game? :/

  20. voice of reason says:

    We have some keepers this season don’t we? Always like to see players reach their full potential with us but looks like one will be left behind and it appears to be Lindegaard. But the season is long and hope he gets a fair share of the pie.

    Sir Alex and his staffs are a genius, both keepers were bought capable of being Manchester United’s1st choice. It was only a matter of skill vs dominance, which one edges over another slightly.

    Speaking of keepers, Sam Johnstone is having a cracking time at Scunthorpe United. Him and Ben hopefully will be capable enough to be back up for years to come or even better our own 1st choice GK.

  21. voice of reason says:

    Reaction to the game of ROM and stretford-end were the best and 1st thing I look forward to after a game. Both seems to be unavailable even this late.

    Dissapointing time for a United fan.

    We want reactions
