It has been rumoured that Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard could miss the rest of the season after suffering a serious setback in his attempts to overcome the ankle injury suffered a few months ago.
Anders Lindegaard successfully overcame the competition from new summer signing David de Gea to establish himself as the first-team regular at Manchester United, but he was unable to nail down the first-team opportunity due to the ankle injury. It has been keeping him out of first-team action for a few months now, but he was expected to be back at the start of April.
However, Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed that the Danish goalkeeper has indeed suffered a setback in his attempts to recover from the ankle injury. As a result, Ferguson has sent Lindegaard on a holiday in the hopes of keeping his mind into positive frame.
So far, David de Gea has done extremely well in his absence, which might have helped Ferguson into not rushing the 27-year-old goalkeeper. United are now odds on favourites for the title according to the latest football betting odds, with the run of form and cleansheets propelling the Reds along the way.
Lindegaard may very well with the rest of the season, but it will enable him to be in the best possible shape for the start of the next season. United are currently involved in the title race with Manchester City, which could yield their 20th Premier league title.
Even though Lindegaard has been suffering from a number of injury problems since the turn of the year, his impressive form just before getting injured has ensured that he will be awarded a new contract by Manchester United at the start of next season.
It is rumoured that can be that we will sign a contract worth around £ 50,000 per week, which is in line with the rest of the squad. Ferguson is also reportedly extremely happy with the progress made by reserve goalkeeper Amos.
