Anders Lindegaard says it is vital that Manchester United end the current season with a winning run and take some momentum into the next campaign.
The Reds have the chance to build on the triumph over Norwich at home with two more outings at Old Trafford - against Sunderland on Saturday 3 May and Hull on the following Tuesday night, before rounding the season off away to Southampton.
That 4-0 victory over the Canaries, in the first game of Ryan Giggs’ temporary tenure as United manager, boosted spirits but the Danish goalkeeper agrees it’s important to not lose focus and ensure home advantage is utilised to full effect in the next two games.
“I think we could definitely gain something from doing that,” said Lindegaard. “In these last few games, we can put some markers down and have something to build upon next season. It’s a great opportunity to win back more confidence for the team and the fans.”
The 30-year-old is also convinced that the guidance of the most decorated player in the club’s history has set United up for a good end to the campaign.
“I think this situation to do it in is almost perfect,” assessed Anders. “We have someone guiding us like Ryan Giggs who everyone on the planet respects for what he has done in his football career.
“I must say he’s been great and he has handled everything very professionally. He seems to have stepped in with a huge amount of authority and respect. He doesn’t in any way seem overwhelmed. It’s probably the most difficult management job on the planet right now and he’s been doing great.”
