Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard is happy playing through the festive period.

While his former teammates are enjoying an extensive rest, United's charismatic goalkeeper insists he is not jealous and knows exactly where he'd rather be.

He told MUTV: "It is almost not comparable. In Denmark where I played, and also in Norway, you have five or six weeks of vacation and the Danish players are probably lying on a beach in Thailand right now.

"But this is where you want to be, it's the best country to play football in and it is all part of the fun of being a footballer in England."
