Manchester United's Dutch goalkeeper, Edwin van der Sar, is contemplating a return to international football according to the latest reports.
Van der Sar retired from the international scene in October 2008, after winning a record 130 caps for the Netherlands. He is currently out of action recovering from injury, but he has admitted that he could be tempted into representing his country once again.
He is quoted in the Chester Chronicle as saying, “The rehabilitation of my injury is the most important thing right now.
“After that, I will focus on United and then we will see what is happening with the national team.”
Holland take on Japan in a friendly on Saturday. They are currently the runaway leaders of Group 9 in the UEFA section of the World Cup qualifying campaign, but might welcome the addition of his experience.
Van der Sar’s comments follow those of ex-United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy, now at Real Madrid, who has also enthused about coming out of international retirement.
