Van der Sar tipped to retire at season's end

07 Oct 2010 - 10:23:43

Manchester United's goalkeeping coach Eric Steele believes that veteran Edwin van der Sar will retire at the end of the current campaign.

The 39-year-old Dutchman seems set to be offered a new 12-month contract by the Red Devils, but Steele thinks that the former Ajax, Juventus and Fulham ace will opt to bow out.

He told the Manchester Evening News: "I think Ed has made his mind up and said this is his last year.

"He is a good pro and a sensible and highly intelligent guy who will know when the time is right.

"I don't think he will need myself or the manager to tell him that time has come - he will know

"I think we need him because this team is in transition at the moment. If he gets to Christmas and he thinks it is right to go on and the manager thinks it is right, we will make a decision.

"It is down to how he feels and performs. If he doesn't perform the manager will make the decision. Edwin will as well."
