Denmark "the land of goalkeepers"

Jimmy Nielsen: Aalborg, Dk.

A new Danish goalkeeper on the sidelines, 20 years old, set to take over from Peter?

Jimmy has never hidden the fact that Peter Schmeichel is his big hero and a dream move to
Manchester United is his big dream would be a carrer at Old Trafford!

Jimmy's dream may well come true as last Tuesday whilst Jimmy played for
Denmark U21's v Scotland Alex Ferguson's brother was there to check him out.

Reports were so good that United have taken steps to possibly secure his services
soon to become apprentice to Peter Schmeichel.

Jimmy's agent Vincenzo Morabito has confirmed United's interest.
Jimmy's current contract with Aalborg FC runs to 2003
United are interested then his contract does not have any limits.
The future for Jimmy may well be in the North of England

Aalborg are currently lying at the top of the Danish Super League.
