Edwin Van Der Sar says that Manchester United’s recent success is not sufficient for him and is hungry for more. The 39-year-old shot-stopper signed a one-year contract extension at Old Trafford (in the Manchester United Hospitality lounge), meaning he will remain at the club at least until the end of the upcoming campaign.

Edwin Van der Sar is enjoying the twilight of his career and has quashed talk that he is in a hurry to retire.

He said: “I have been hearing these questions for the last three or four years. Sometimes you surprise yourself also. It is a great club to be at.

“You play in the Premier League, the Champions League, you have a chance of winning titles and trophies and competing against the best players in the league.

“It is something that is too good not to do it any more. I still very much enjoy it. Even my age it is still a pleasure to put in all the hard work so you are in the starting XI on a Saturday and a Tuesday night.”

The experienced Dutch keeper is set to stay as United’s No.1 this season, and will continue to be backed up by Tomasz Kuszczak.
