Champions League Final: Edwin van der Sar

Edwin van der Sar - Man Utd Star Goalkeeper


Fourty year old Van der Sar will be playing the final competitive match of his career and wants to end with a trophy and victory against Barcelona at Wembley.

"The key is for us to score the first goal,” said Edwin.

"We lost a goal in Rome and then it was quite difficult to come back so, if we can, we need to change that."

"We've lost two good players in Cristiano] Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez; others came in, we've matured and maybe we changed our way of playing a little bit," he said.

"What sticks out is the penalty save in 2008 against Anelka," Van der Sar continued.

"That won the trophy and you never really win the game as a goalkeeper.

"Normally someone has to score the last penalty so that was a nice feeling and something that would be nice to replicate again."

Referring to United playing in the Champions League Final clash against Barcelona, he said, “We deserved this – the way that we played this season, especially in the second half, shows we are on the right track and hopefully we will learn from our mistakes in the 2009 final to go one better at Wembley."

If United wins the Champions League Trophy, it will be Van der Sar’s third time lifting the trophy after hoisting it in 1995 with Ajax and in 2008 with the Red Devils.

Man Utd lost the 2009 Champions League final 2-0 to the Catalans.
