New dad Lindegaard returns to United squad

14 December 2012 15:02

Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard is available for selection once again this weekend after the birth of his son.

The Denmark international missed last weekend's Manchester derby to be at the birth but has returned to training to give manager Sir Alex Ferguson a selection headache ahead of their clash against Sunderland.

Despite his first child being born, the 28-year-old admitted he could not tear himself away from following the exciting derby.

Lindegaard told the club's website: "I had my phone with me so I was checking up on the score and what was going on all the time. I couldn't leave it completely."

He described his introduction into fatherhood as 'a fantastic experience' and together with Robin van Persie's 90th-minute winner, Sunday was 'the greatest day' of his life.
