Van Gaal chooses Rensing

04 Aug 2009 - 07:32:29

Bayern Munich manager Louis van Gaal has confirmed that Michael Rensing will be his first-choice goalkeeper this season.

The 25-year-old has made 52 starts for the Bundesliga side but lost his place to Hans-Jorg Butt in the final two months of last season following a string of poor displays.

However, van Gaal seems willing to choose the younger man again, saying: "I've seen Hans-Jorg Butt and Michael Rensing in action for the past four weeks and I've made a decision based on how they performed during those four weeks.

"Michael might not have had his best moment in the cup match against Neckarelz, but I won't judge him on one single moment. I put all my faith in him to prove his worth this season."

Bayern had hoped to sign Manuel Neuer this summer but eventually failed to land the Schalke goalkeeper.
