Edwin van der Sar has retired as goalkeeper for Man Utd


Superstar goalkeeper, Van der Sar will be hard to replace. There is currently doubt as to whether there is a replacement capable of replicating his composure, consistency and class. Van der Sar's value to the team and to this victorious campaign cannot be overestimated.

Rivals Arsemal and Tottenham's goalkeepers are said to have cost them in their chase to end their silverware droughts - but van der Sar has been a rock for United - stopping opponents dead in their tracks season after season. 

He will be dearly missed by Sir Alex Ferguson, his teammates and fans.
