Man Utd boss Ferguson happy with competition between Lindegaard and De Gea

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was delighted with Anders Lindegaard's performance in their victory at Fulham.

The Denmark international has only been beaten once, in the 1-1 draw against Benfica, in all of his six matches this term.

When asked by MUTV if having two quality keepers is a nice problem to have, Sir Alex replied: "It’s not a problem because I think Anders has that little bit more experience. I felt his was the right time to change and we’re going to do that with David.

"He’s only 20 years of age and is going to be a fantastic goalkeeper, there’s absolutely no doubt about that. Having Anders as a back-up in terms of giving the lad a break at the right time, is proving its worth. Anders is an outstanding goalkeeper and has a little bit more experience."
