Man Utd players want Van der Sar to lift trophy if Champions League final won

Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar will lift the Champions League trophy should they win tomorrow at Wembley.

The Mirror says Van der Sar is playing his final game before retiring and plans are in place for United's goalkeeper to lift the trophy, along with skipper Nemanja Vidic, should Sir Alex Ferguson's side win.

It is understood United's players agree that raising the trophy at Wembley would be a fitting way for Van der Sar, 40, to bring the curtain down on his illustrious career.

When United beat Chelsea on penalties in Moscow in 2008, then-captain Rio Ferdinand and Ryan Giggs, who beat Sir Bobby Charlton's all-time appearances record that night, accepted the trophy together.
