PLAYERS: David De Gea
Manchester United says Danish goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard has signed a four-year contract extension at the club through till the 2015-16 season. The 28-year-old Lindegaard, who joined United in January 2011, said Friday that he is ''proud that the manager has shown the confidence he has in me by giving me a new deal'' and that ''nothing makes me more proud than wearing the Manchester United badge.'' Lindegaard will compete with David De Gea to start in goal for United, and coach Alex Ferguson says ''there is healthy competition in the goalkeeping department which is always good for the team, albeit a headache for me.''
