Van der Sar: Still set to retire
Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar has conceded he did have 'second thoughts' about his retirement.
The 40-year-old Dutchman, who joined United from Fulham in 2005, is set to hang up his boots this summer.
But Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson revealed that the shot-stopper had 'a wobble' about his impending retirement.
Van der Sar, however, has indicated he is to stand by his decision, telling Sky Sports HD1: "You always have second thoughts.
"But now I am looking forward to Saturday (against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League). Let's make sure we win."
Van der Sar played his final game at Old Trafford as United beat Blackpool on Sunday, the club crowned champions after the final whistle.
"It's been a great six years. To play for a team like this at my age is unbelievable," concluded the keeper.
