Lindegaard happy for the Young Red Devils
With everyone praising the youngsters at United these days, Lindegaard is pretty happy to see them defending ahead of him. He says that he has total faith in them and is happy to see their contribution in the win over Newcastle.
Sir Alex Ferguson greatly applaused the performances of the central defenders Scott Wootton and Michael Keane after the 2 – 1 victory. Lindegaard was greatly impressed by these defenders. They are likely to play their parts in replacing Nemanja Vidic, who is injured.
“We have some very good young defenders – I’m a big fan of Scotty’s [Wootton]. I’ve played a lot of games with him and he has a real calmness to his game and is a no-nonsense player,” Lindegaard told ManUtd.com.
“The most important thing for the young lads to do when they come into the side is to enjoy it. The pressure and attention on everything you do is enormous, but you have to put that aside and focus on what matters and that is right here, right now.
“Playing in your first few games for United are moments you’ll look back on for the rest of your life, it’s a special kind of feeling and you have to enjoy every second.
“We’ve been very unlucky with injuries in the last year and a half,” he added. “But it shows how big the squad is and how much quality there is for every position that things have gone well so far this season [in terms of results].”
Lindegaard has also been lucky since he has been performing well.
“It’s been great to have a run in the side and we’ve won the three games I’ve played in and done well defensively,” he said. “That isn’t just down to me though. As a team in general we’ve defended well.
“It’s been a tough way back from my injury last season and obviously with David [De Gea] doing as well as he did in the last part of the season. But I’m really pleased with how it’s gone so far.”
There always has been a tough competition between David de Gea and Anders Lindegaard but despite that they maintain a positive relationship help each other out. Lindegaard had said this on a podcast last month.
