Lindegaard hails 'world-class' Manchester United goalkeeping coach Woods

The Denmark international has praised the former England No.1, who moved to Old Trafford along with David Moyes in the summer, and says he is enjoying the new coach's sessions
Manchester United shot-stopper Anders Lindegaard has praised the club’s new goalkeeping coach Chris Woods for the impact he has made since his arrival in the summer.

The 54-year-old, having worked with new Red Devils boss David Moyes at Everton, was brought to Old Trafford as part of the Scot's overhaul of United's backroom staff.

And Lindegaard, who has made just one appearance in the Capital One Cup this term, has dubbed Woods' training sessions as "world-class" and is enjoying working under the former England keeper.

“It has been absolutely world-class,” Lindegaard told the club’s official website.

“I got a really good impression of Chris from the first day. He has got something about him, both as a coach and a human being. He is very calm; he is really invested in himself and what he can do.

“There is not the slightest doubt about what he thinks is right, he does not doubt any of what he does, he just believes in himself 100 per cent. That really shows and it gives us goalkeepers a calmness.

“He is very comfortable as a coach and as a person as well. I really enjoy working with him.”

Lindegaard says there is a relaxed atmosphere amongst the goalkeepers during training, though Woods ensures they focus and work hard when they have to.

He added: “There is a very good training atmosphere, there is plenty of space for joking around and having fun, but when we are in it, we are properly in it.

“His very presence makes you give your all and I am very impressed with him.”
