The Reds may be up against Champions League minnows on Tuesday night in CFR Cluj, but Anders Lindegaard insists the players won't take anything for granted.
The Danish goalkeeper is relishing the opportunity to play in Europe’s biggest club competition having enjoyed two run-outs last season, including an appearance in United’s last game in Romania against Otelul Galati. And he insists the Reds know the importance of picking up a positive result at the CFR Stadium.
“We want to get through the group. We need it to be a no-nonsense campaign for us this time – we cannot afford to make the same mistakes as we did last season,” he told ManUtd.com.
“The Champions League is always a very special competition to be involved in. Hearing the music before the game and the whole atmosphere around the matches is something special every time.
“Tuesday’s game is another important one for us, but we look at every match as being important,” he added. “As I have said before, the amazing thing about being at United is there no difference between, say, playing Crawley at home in the FA Cup or Liverpool away in the league; we take the same approach every time and that is to work in the professional manner that has made the club into what it is today.
“We played in Romania last season and we hope for a similar result there on Tuesday. We have to go out there and win again.”
