Former Man United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard retires from football – Man United News And Transfer News

Former Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard has retired from football.

The 38-year-old made the announcement shortly after missing out on Denmark’s 2022 World Cup squad.

“Football has shown me the world and given me experiences that I could only dream of;” he said on Instagram.

“I look back on my career with great pride and gratitude and thank everyone who has been there for me and everyone I have met and worked with on the beautiful game.

“I have been preparing for this day for many years and I feel ready. I am looking forward to starting a new chapter in my life.

“What kind of work I don’t know yet. Not because I can’t think of anything. There are thousands of things that I find interesting. The challenge will be figuring out what’s right. I imagine staying in football. I love the beautiful game and everything that comes with it. There’s also something appealing about changing lanes.”

The popular Dane spent four years at Old Trafford between 2011 and 2015, acting as a substitute for David de Gea.

His record at Old Trafford was excellent, keeping 13 clean sheets in 29 appearances.

Following his time at Old Trafford, Lindegaard went on to play for West Brom, Preston and Burnley before returning to Scandinavia to join Helsingborg, where he has played for the last four years.

Lindegaard remains a huge United fan, as evidenced by an Instagram story of his sons putting together a magnificent Lego™ model of Old Trafford.

During his time at United, the Dane won two Premier League titles in 2011 and 2013, the Community Shield in 2012 and the Under-21 Premier League in 2012/13.

Lindegaard scored a good headed goal during his professional career.

The Peoples Person wishes Anders the best for the future.
