Bayern Munich coach Van Gaal tribute to Man Utd keeper Van der Sar

Ahead of tonight's Champions League clash, Bayern Munich coach Louis van Gaal has paid tribute to Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar.

The pair go head-to-head in the Allianz Arena tonight 15 years after Van der Sar was part of Van Gaal's Ajax side that claimed Champions League glory at Juventus' expense.

Van Gaal said: "I always say Van der Sar is a manufactured goalkeeper. He is not so happy when I say it, but there are more natural goalkeepers in the world. He always works with his brain. That is his secret. He is a great role model for goalkeepers around the world."
