"David has done a brilliant job. He slid into his new role in Manchester really well. I am enjoying working with him every day. He has gone straight to the heart of it and is doing his job with great authority."

Anders enthused by set-up

Anders Lindegaard is enjoying his job under the new Manchester United coaching set-up.

It’s almost a month since David Moyes took the managerial reins and Chris Woods became the Reds’ new goalkeeping coach.

And Lindegaard has been impressed by how well the duo have taken to their new roles.

"David Moyes has really gelled with the situation," the Danish stopper told PA Sport. "He has given the club and the staff the authority you need to be in that job.

"It has been a pleasure to see and nice to be a part of. And I have had a very good impression of Chris, too."

Lindegaard continued: "David has done a brilliant job. He slid into his new role in Manchester really well. I am enjoying working with him every day. He has gone straight to the heart of it and is doing his job with great authority."

Lindegaard has played in two games so far on Tour 2013 presented by Aon, most recently in the 2-2 draw with Cerezo Osaka on Friday night, when there were drinks breaks in either half to combat the stifling conditions.

"It is tough," Anders admitted. "One of the reasons we are here is to get our fitness levels high and these conditions are pretty much perfect for that.

"People at home can't see through their TVs, or in pictures in the newspaper, how difficult the conditions are. It is hard for us. But in terms of the practical issues of being on a pre-season tour, it definitely pays off."
