The Dane, who pulled on a Reds shirt for the first time in a competitive fixture in United’s 2-1 win at Southampton, was buzzing after fulfilling a childhood dream.
“It was one of the most enjoyable days of my life so far,” he told MUTV. “When you’ve dreamed of representing a club since you were four years old and finally the dream comes true, obviously it’s a very big thing. I enjoyed it a lot. It was a good debut.”
No blame was attached to Lindegaard for Southampton’s goal – a cracking shot that fizzed into the roof of the net – and the United fans who travelled to St Mary’s supported him for the entire 90 minutes.
“We had a moment when they hid the ball from me,” he said of the fans. “I believe we had a moment and it was very nice. They have taken very good care of me, both at Old Trafford and here today. I owe them a big thanks for supporting me.
