'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Edwin van der Sar Has Man Utd Focus

Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar says he will do his talking on the pitch and not let contract talks over his future take away his focus.

Sir Alex Ferguson is set to offer Van der Sar a new one year deal, the giant 35-year-old shot-stopper said:

'I currently have a contract until 2007 - and while I saw some stories about an extension, I have not spoken to anyone about it. All I can do is perform the same way I did last season. If I do that I will be happy, and my manager will be happy as well.'

He has also decided not to retire from international football explaining: 'The first week after the World Cup was hard, because I was carrying over a lot of feelings from what happened in Germany, and the disappointment is always a little bit more acute when you are captain. But then I went on holiday, spoke to a few people and started training again. It doesn't take long to get the feeling back that you want to carry on doing the thing you love most of all, which is playing football. That is why I have decided to carry on.'

Shame, if he'd retired from international duties he could have prolonged his Manchester United career further?
