Edwin van der Sar not thinking about retirement

Edwin van der Sar has given up worrying about how long his career will continue and says that his time at Manchester United has given him ''a new lease of life''.

Van der Sar will celebrate his 40th birthday in October, by which time he hopes to be well on the way to another fine season for the Old Trafford outfit. Now in his sixth season, Van der Sar remains as reliable as ever, with Ben Foster becoming the latest to abandon to quest to battle with the veteran Dutchman when he left Old Trafford for Birmingham this summer.

Age must catch up with Van der Sar eventually, but on recent evidence, there is plenty of life in the former Ajax man yet. And he certainly is not naming the day when he hangs up his gloves for the last time.

''I don't worry about when that day arrives,'' he said. ''I am now exceeding my own expectations so it doesn't bother me.

''When I was younger I thought maybe I would finish in my mid-30s. But that is a normal time to be thinking about it when you are younger and for players at this level.

''That would have been the obvious time to finish but I only came to United late in my career and maybe that is why I am still enjoying it. Coming to Old Trafford probably gave me a new lease of life.''
