Edwin Van der Sar has been on the receiving end of plenty of praise this season after beating the English and British records for length of time without conceding a goal.
That record will again be put to the test tonight in our match against Fulham, but former United keeper, Peter Schmeichel, believes the praise should be shared with Nemanja Vidic.
“Edwin gets a lot of praise but Vidic’s displays in the last two years are second to none,” said Schmeichel. “Ferdinand is the best defender in the world. But he’s learned a lot from Vidic. I think Edwin has done tremendously well. It’s great to see him come into the team and give stability.”
