Anders Lindegaard praises Man United’s ‘cheeky’ Adnan Januzaj

Anders Lindegaard admits he has been thoroughly impressed by what he has seen of Adnan Januzaj at Manchester United.
The 18-year-old, who announced himself to English football with a stunning brace in the 2-1 win at Sunderland earlier this month, recently signed a new five-year contract with the Red Devils.
Januzaj has featured in four of United’s last five games, with his latest appearance coming in Tuesday night’s 4-0 League Cup win over Norwich City at Old Trafford.
And United shot-stopper Lindegaard believes that there is plenty more to come from the highly-rated teenager.
“I think it’s lovely to see how great Adnan is doing,” Lindegaard told MUTV.
“He gives hope to the whole United spirit, a young lad coming through from the academy into the first team. He’s doing absolutely fantastic. You see what an impact he’s had, not just tonight but on other nights as well.
“Adnan is cheeky both on the pitch and off the pitch. He seems very balanced in his personality and that’s great to see from an 18 year-old kid.
“He plays like he’s played 200 Premier League games already. I’m just very impressed with him.”
