Edwin van der Sar has dismissed claims from Manchester United’s goalkeeping coach that he is likely to retire next summer.
United have been looking at goalkeepers in recent months, and coach Eric Steele said in an interview this week that he believed Van der Sar, who turns 40 this month, had decided to retire at the end of the season.
However, Van der Sar has now denied Steele’s claims and said he has not made a decision about his future.
“That’s complete nonsense,” he told www.sport-promotion.nl. “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.”
