Van der Sar rubbishes retirement claims
Friday 08 October 2010
Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar has rubbished suggestions he has decided to retire at the end of the season.
United goalkeeping coach Eric Steele said yesterday: "I think Ed has made his mind up and said this is his last year."
But Van der Sar, 39, insisted that is not the case, telling www.sport-promotion.nl: "That's complete nonsense. I do not know where this story comes from but it is nonsense.
"I don't yet know whether I will stop or continue after this season. Only in the course of this season will I think about it. Then I will decide and not before. For now I keep my focus on United."
The Dutchman joined United in 2005 from Fulham after spells at Juventus and Ajax.
