Keeper eyes first team
Anders Lindegaard says there is nowhere he would rather be than Manchester United as he targets a return to the first team.
A life long fan of United Lindegaard knew he was arriving as back-up to Edwin van der Sar when he signed from Norwegian outfit Aalesunds 18 months ago. He has signed a new four year deal this week and is targeting a return to the first team, up until January the 28-year-old had replaced the £17 million man David de Gea with a string of solid mid-season displays then an ankle injury ended his campaign. "I'm very pleased to have signed a new contract," the Dane said. "I'm glad and proud the manager has shown the confidence he has in me by giving me a new deal. There is nowhere in the world I would rather be than right here. "The competition for places is tough, as it should be in a club like this. It only makes us better as individuals and, more importantly, stronger as a team. It's what I have dreamt of all my life and nothing makes me more proud than wearing the Manchester United badge."
