It Didn`t Quite End Right!

It Didn`t Quite End Right!

And so the curtain came down on Edwin van der Sar`s career in not exactly the style he wanted.

But, Edwin, as they say, had a good innings and can reflect on some wonderful times in his United career.

Reflecting on Saturday night and the defeat at the hands of a very good Barcelona team, Edwin had this to say,

"I`m quite relaxed, as s*** happens."

"It would have been great to have gone out with a win, but it didn`t happen."

"We`re disappointed, but that`s life - sometimes you win, sometimes you lose."

"But this is the right time for me to retire, and I`m happy with my decision."

And as for the future, Edwin looks set to return to Holland, further remarking,

"I`ve taken coaching badges here in England, but I`m not sure if I will finish them."

"I`ve put myself forward to do that in Holland as well, but I think I want to take a year out right now."

"I want to watch games with friends on a Saturday and have a nice meal, then watch a Sunday game, play golf and have family time."

Here at Vital Manchester United we wish Edwin all the best and thank him for everything he done for us!

Edwin, you've been brilliant and thanks for everything. The saddest point of the night was knowing that it was your last game. Best of luck for the future.
