The Dutchman is enjoying an Indian summer to his career after arriving from Fulham in 2005.

He signed a one-year contract extension in February which means he will remain with the club at least until the end of the coming season.

Van der Sar insists age should be no barrier to staying hungry and having the will to win. 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."
