Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel has declared that Sir Alex Ferguson must persuade Edwin van der Sar to play another season in order to solve his goalkeeping crisis.
The former Juventus and Fulham shot stopper is expected to hang up his gloves at the end of this season and return home to Holland.
Schmeichel said: “There are a lot of good keepers around who fit the style of United, but I would spend a lot of energy persuading Van Der Sar to stay for another season.”
The great Dane says new signing Anders Lindegaard isn’t ready to be United’s No1.
“Lindegaard is an immensely talented keeper, we all know that, but not a lot of people know what he’s capable of because he’s 26 but not had a long career.
“Whatever he’s done in the game has all happened within the last six months. You can always play well for a short period of time, but can you play well for United for ten years? We don’t know so that will be exciting to follow.”
