EDWIN van der Sar will miss the first two months of the season after having surgery in a broken finger in his left hand. The United keeper sustained the injury saving a penalty from Danijel Pranjic in the Reds' 7-6 penalty shoot-out defeat to Bayern Munich in the pre-season Audi Cup in Germany last week. The 38-year-old Dutchman is not expected to be back in Sir Alex Ferguson's plans until late September, meaning the Scot will have to turn to either Ben Foster or Tomasz Kuszczak between the posts for the start of the new season.
