Manchester United's Edwin van der Sar Rubbishes Retirement Talk

Veteran shot stopper focussed on United
Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar has rubbished rumours that he has decided to retire at the end of this season as "nonsense."

Earlier this week, United goalkeeping coach Eric Steele indicated that he expected the Dutch stopper to hang up his gloves at the end of the current campaign, however van der Sar has moved quickly to shoot down those suggestions.

"That's complete nonsense. I do not know where this story comes from but it is nonsense," Van der Sar told www.sport-promotion.nl.

"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."

Despite approaching 40, the United keeper is still amongst the top goalkeepers in Europe, and this is reflected in the Castrol Rankings, where he is currently 20th.
