Ex-Manchester United keeper on life after Fergie: “It was like charging an iPhone with a Nokia charger”

Former Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard has revealed that everyone at Old Trafford struggled to adapt to life after Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.

The legendary Scottish manager stepped down as United boss in 2013, prompting a period of decline in which the Red Devils have failed to reclaim the Premier League title.

Former Denmark international Lindegaard, now a free agent after being released by Burnley, spent five years at United between 2010 and 2015 and saw the transition first hand.

Speaking at length to the Evening Standard, the 35-year-old refused to make anyone a scapegoat for the problems the club encountered.

Asked about David Moyes inheriting an ageing squad before his successor Louis van Gaal made sweeping changes, Lindegaard said: “I didn’t feel it ageing. It felt more like we just couldn’t adjust to a new way of life.
