Man Utd keeper Van der Sar determined to grab Euro chance

Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar admits his time at Ajax had him convinced winning European trophies was easy!

He told manutd.com: "At Ajax I was starting to feel like it was normal to win trophies and play in finals! But then it dried out and when I was at Fulham I thought it was the end of me winning things.

"Now I'm pleased to have a chance at United and perform on the highest level and achieve again those things I managed earlier in my career."

He added: "It's shaping up nicely but we haven't won anything yet.

"Some people say our name is already on the trophy, but that's not true - we still have a tough tie against Barcelona and then Chelsea or Liverpool.

"We can't relax - the last month is going to be the most important of the campaign, so everybody will have to keep focusing and working hard and hopefully the rewards will come after that."
