Wayne Rooney’s ‘most-annoying’ team-mate sends message to Man United captain

Anders Lindegaard responds to Wayne Rooney on Twitter after being named most-annoying Man United team-mate

Anders Lindegaard sent a message to Wayne Rooney on Twitter after the Manchester United captain branded the goalkeeper as his most-annoying team-mate ever.

The Danish shot stopper followed Darren Fletcher to West Bromwich Albion in the summer transfer window on a free transfer after he struggled to secure first-team football under Louis van Gaal.

Lindegaard was team-mates with Rooney for five seasons as the 31-year-old deputised for Edwin van der Sar and David De Gea following his move from Aalesund in 2010.

And the United captain isn’t a fan of the goalkeeper if his recent interview with Sports Magazine is anything to go by.

Asked to the worst team-mate to be stuck in a lift with, Rooney replied: “Anders Lindegaard [now at West Brom]. He’s just annoying.”

However, Lindegaard appears to have a good sense of humour after he posted the below tweet after learning of Rooney’s comments.

Former United goalkeeper Lindegaard hasn’t made an appearance for the Baggies this season.
