Lindegaard takes a break

Anders Lindegaard is likely to be available for Manchester United before the end of the season, despite taking an enforced rest from his recovery process.

Some reports claimed the Danish goalkeeper would miss the remainder of the run-in with an ankle injury but Sir Alex is hopeful that Lindegaard will soon be able to resume his battle with David De Gea for a starting spot.

"Anders was training very well," stated the boss on Friday. "And maybe he overdid it.

"We've given him a week off, a rest period for a week, and he should be back before the end of the season."
