Van der Sar slams retirement reports

08 October 2010 02:20
Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar has branded reports that he has already decided to retire at the end of the season as "nonsense". United's goalkeeping coach Eric Steele suggested on Thursday that the 39-year-old Dutchman had made up his mind that this season would be his last. Van der Sar has made over 750 first-team appearances for the likes of the Red Devils, Fulham, Juventus and Ajax, but claims that no decision has yet been made on whether he will play on for another season. The 130-cap Dutch record holder normally discusses his future with United boss Sir Alex Ferguson in January before putting pen to paper on a rolling one-year contract. "That's complete nonsense," van der Sar told Dutch media. "I do not know where this story comes from but it is nonsense. 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."
