Following Paul Scholes’ return from retirement and Manchester United’s issues settling in a new number one goalkeeper, Edwin Van der Sar has revealed people have been asking whether he has any plans on doing the same.
“I got a few text messages from friends saying, ‘What about you?’,” Van der Sar said. “I’m quite happy at the moment. There’s no doubt in my mind. I was at Carrington and he was watching a training session and I said, ‘So, how do you like it?’. He said, ‘Not really. I miss it’. He was still there doing his work as an assistant coach with the reserve team so it was probably a little bit easier to get back in.”
