There was a lot of disappointment from United fans when they learnt that Eric Steele, our goalkeeping coach, had chosen to leave the staff. Having enjoyed so much success with David de Gea, helping him become the best keeper in the league last season, it made sense for him to continue working with the Spaniard.

Chris Woods is Steele’s replacement and Lindegaard says that despite being different, the new coach is doing a good job.

“It is very different with Chris compared to what we are used to,” said Lindegaard. “All I can say is that I have had a very good impression of him. I don’t want to go into details but everything is different. It has been a very good experience because he has done a brilliant job. He slid into his new role in Manchester really well. I am enjoying working with him.”
