Despite sharing the goalkeeping duties with David De Gea last season, it has become apparent that the Spaniard is Ferguson’s number 1 choice for the club. Lindegaard hasn’t featured for United in 2013.
The Dane spoke to the Mirror about his lack of game time, as he’s watched from the stands for most of the season:
“For me at the moment it’s not easy being on the bench when the team is performing as well as we do. We live for the thrill of playing and the adrenaline you get when you step out on the pitch.”
The 28-year-old added: “Everybody wants to play and I’m not different from anyone else. I’m sure all the players who are not in the starting line-up every game would say the same.”
The goalkeeper’s lack of games could be enough to see him move to a different club, offering him first team football. West Ham have been linked with the Danish ‘keeper, who could replace the ageing Jussi Jaaskelainen.
Lindegaard has only been capped five times for Denmark, but wasn’t involved in all 3 of their last World Cup qualifiers, and isn’t expected to feature during the current international break.
