Van Der Sar's Last Season Coming Up

Van Der Sar's Last Season Coming Up

According to the Sun (...), Edwin van der Sar will retire at the end of the 2009/10 season. United's Dutch goalkeeper will turn 39 in October so it would be no surprise if he indeed decided to quit.

Much will depend on Ben Foster, though. I guess the young (well, relatively, for a goalkeeper he's young at 26) Ben will get more chance to impress next season and if he performs solidly then Fergie will let Van der Sar go at the end of the campaign.

However, if Foster turns out to be unable to bear the burden of United's number 1 shirt Fergie will possibly persuade Edwin to have another season, to be around with his experience to help any newcomer who could eventually replace him.

A fantastic keeper who has had a fantastic career uptill now.Its just a shame we bought him so late but even then he showed no signs of aging.

This season if u notice has opened a lot of doors for our players who haven't had their chances or been out of form.The likes of nani,foster and even welbeck[Who Fergie Holds in high regards] have a chance to prove themselves.

abmtd, can't say a word against that. van der Sar's been terrific, but I think one season is about right and then we can hopefully bring Foster in gradually (depending on Edwin's form and possibly get him ready for the world cup).

If foster were able to kick on this season and actually take over the number 1 spot from edwin it would be fantastic news for england as he is the only GK in the country who isn't crap.

Plus the 6+5 rule which may be implemented.

There are not many truly world class goalkeepers anymore.
