Fergie Impressed by Edwin

  • 21 September 2007

Sir Alex Ferguson has conceded that he was reliant on two outstanding saves from Edwin van der Sar from Leidson and Tonel to ensure only a third triumph in 15 Champions League away games.

"Edwin has been with us for three seasons now and when I bought him I thought he was going to be one of my best buys," said Ferguson.

"I should have done it years ago when I had the chance but I let it slip through my fingers.

"Even now, at 36, he still has such great enthusiasm. He has played 120 times for Holland and has won everything in the game, yet he still sets such a great example for all our other goalkeepers."
