Man Utd keeper Lindegaard: I am not here to be humble No2

Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard has warned he won't settle for being David De Gea's humble understudy. It is clear that Sir Alex Ferguson has bought himself a goalkeeper who is not going to sit in the shadows and quietly wait for De Gea to play himself out of the team.

"I don't know what you expect me to say," said Lindegaard, 27, when asked about his position at United. "Do you expect me to say I'm happy to be number two? That's not how it is. I am here because I want to be number one.

"If you are good enough you're going to play - it's as simple as that. I do as well as I can when I get the chances and in the end if I am good enough I am going to be number one."
