Name: Anders Rozenkrantz Lindegaard
Born: April 13, 1984
Anders Lindegaard was born in Dyrup, Denmark on April 13, 1984.
Anders would begin his professional sporting career at the local Danish Superliga team Odense Boldklub as a goalkeeper. In November 2006, Anders would make his Danish Superliga debut in a victorious effort. Three years later, Anders made his UEFA competition debut in another victorious effort.
Anders recently ended his marriage to reality television celebrity Misse Beqiri due to “irreconcilable differences.” The couple started to date in 2011 and got married in 2014. They have a son named Julian.
His professional footballer career would become bigger in 2009 when he joined Aalesunds FK, a Norwegian club. In that same year, he helped win the Norwegian Football Cup. In 2010, Anders named Goalkeeper of the Year in Denmark and Norway. This seemed to attract noticeable attention from the richest football team in the world today: Manchester United.
In November 2010, the English club had been interested in Anders. Despite some disagreements within the team, Anders was signed to play in Premier League. He signed a three-year contract that was worth approximately $4.6 million (£3.5 million). Anders made his debut with Manchester United in January 2012. Anders would win in his very first match.
After a few seasons, he left the club and signed with West Bromwich Albion. The relationship did not last long as he departed from the club and joined Preston North End.
Critics argue that it was too premature to have Anders participate in Premier League action.
Anders has also competed at the international level. He represented Denmark at the under-19, under-20 and senior level. He would prove to be a valuable goalkeeper during the Euro 2012 event. He not only helped the team qualify for the tournament, he also assisted in the defeat of Cyprus and held his own against Portugal.
In addition to being an avid footballer, Anders is an outspoken of the LGBTQ community. He has criticized the mistreatment of LGBTQ members in international soccer. Anders has also questioned the lack of openly gay players in the sport, noting that gay people need a hero in soccer.
We estimate that Anders Lindegaard’s net worth is $3.1 million (2015).
So how much is $3.1 million really?
$3.1 million could help pay just for the towels and clothing at Manchester United, which is a multi-billion-dollar club. $3.1 million could also help pay for the contract of Anders on your club.
