Lindegaard up for United battle

Van der Sar is retiring in the summer, meaning the number one spot

with the Premier League leaders is up for grabs. A string of

high-profile keepers from across Europe have been linked with a

move to Old Trafford, while Sir Alex Ferguson currently has

Lindegaard and Tomasz Kuszczak to choose from if he promotes from

within. Lindegaard has made two FA Cup appearances since joining

United during the winter and the Denmark international is currently

sidelined by a knee injury. Goal However, the 27-year-old is

determined to stake his claim to be van der Sar’s successor and is

not concerned by the threat of new signings. “The question is more

complex than just a yes or no answer,” Lindegaard told Sunmorposten

regarding his chances of being first choice. “There are many

factors to consider but it is, of course, a goal. “I don’t think

about that (other keepers being linked with United). That’s not on

my table and I can’t say one thing or another about it. “The only

thing I can do is show myself and prove to everyone that I should

be the first-choice keeper.”
