Anders Lindegaard nearing Manchester United return
Wednesday 07 March 2012
Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed he expects goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard to be available for Manchester United within the next three weeks.
The Denmark international had just broken into the Red Devils first team on a regular basis when he injured an ankle in training.
It has ruled Lindegaard out since the end of January, offering David de Gea the chance to re-establish himself as United's number one.
De Gea has snapped up that opportunity, meaning when Lindegaard is fit again he will find it doubly difficult to re-establish himself.
"Anders is doing all the running now," said Ferguson.
"It will be another two or three weeks before he gets into the football side but he is progressing very well."
Ferguson confirmed veteran midfielder Paul Scholes had missed training this morning to do some gym work and that fellow midfielders Anderson and Tom Cleverley were available after recent injuries.
However, the United boss said he knew nothing of the intentions of teenager Paul Pogba, who has reportedly agreed to join Juventus in the summer.
Pogba was missing from last night's reserve team defeat to West Brom and trained away from the first-team squad today, further strengthening the belief he will be leaving.
"I can't tell you anything about it because I do not know," said Ferguson.
