Lindegaard determined to grab preseason chance at Man Utd

Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard is determined to make the most of their preseason tour to the USA.

He's well aware of the importance of pre-season training and, he says, the opportunity the tour will give him to stake a claim for the no.1 shirt.

Lindegaard told manutd.com: "In the USA it's going to be especially important for the goalkeepers to play well because Edwin's retired and the rest of us are fighting for that jersey.

"I know it's going to be a lot of hard work but I'm looking forward to it very much. I've been to Florida twice for training camps with other sides but we didn't play many games in America - certainly not big ones in sell-out stadiums. That's going to be a great experience.

"Also, I know we'll do a lot of promotional work in America as well and we'll get to meet the fans. That's only natural because we're the biggest club in the world and America is a huge market. That side of the game - the marketing and the business - is interesting too, and I'm looking forward to seeing how that all works."
