Anders Lindegaard remains on the bench even with Preston North

It seems like in almost every club that the Danish shot-stopper Anders Lindegaard joins, his time is spent on the sidelines as a substitute player.


On January of 2016, Lindegaard completed his move from West Bromwich Albion to Preston North End and one of the main reasons of why the 32 year old player opted to make this transfer was to get more time in the actual pitch.

Unfortunately for the Danish performer, he has had to settle with a place on the sidelines with the English Championship League club as Chris Maxwell is the undisputed first choice goal-keeper of the manager Simon Grayson.

Having to spend time on the sidelines is not something new for Anders Lindegaard as this was something that he had to do with his previous clubs: West Bromwich Albion and Manchester United but Lindegaard was hoping that he could start getting a more important role with Preston North End.

The question that now is starting to emerge in relation to Anders Lindegaard is if he is going to change clubs or stay with Preston North End where he is being overshadowed by the 26 year old Welsh shot-stopper Chris Maxwell.

This is something that Anders Lindegaard really has to start taking into consideration as the Danish player is 32 years old and his career is entering it’s final stages.It’s very unlikely that Lindegaard will be playing an important role for Preston North End anytime soon as the main goal-keeper of the squad, Chris Maxwell recently signed a contract extension which will be keeping him with the English League Championship club at least until 2020.

From the looks of it, Chris Maxwell will continue to be the main goal-keeper of Preston North End for the foreseeable future and this is horrible news for Anders Lindegaard as he might have to search for another club if he wants to get consistent playing time.
