Lindegaard: Man United already benefiting from Scholes’ return
The 37-year-old midfielder started his first Premier League match with the club following his shock return last Sunday, scoring the Red Devils’ first goal in their 3-0 win over Bolton.
And his team-mate feels they are already reaping the rewards of having the veteran back in their squad as Sir Alex Ferguson's men aim to win the league title again.
“It was brilliant to see [Paul] Scholes get that goal,” said Lindegaard “I think he played brilliantly until he came off in the second-half and he is giving us a bit more safety in the team.
“He’s got a lot of experience we can benefit from and he was brilliant [against Bolton]. He is a man to look up to. He’s been in the game for so long. No-one knows Manchester United as well as he does.”
And when asked about his fight to be Manchester United’s first choice goalkeeper with David De Gea, the Dane, who has started seven Premier League games this season, admitted that as long as he is playing games at the club he is happy.
“Everyone wants to play as much as possible,” added Lindegaard: “I’m no different from anyone else but I don’t need a definition on my position.
“I enjoy every game I play in, every game I play for Manchester United is a massive privilege for me and I don’t look at it in the same way as [the media] looks at it.”
