Manchester United legend Edwin van der Sar is delighted for Maarten Stekelenburg over his move to Fulham.

The former AS Roma keeper has drawn comparisons with Van der Sar, who enjoyed a successful career with the Cottagers.

"The resemblance was even noticed by me," said Van der Sar. "Fulham improved me a lot, I can only hope that Martin will experience the same.

"He is in any case a top keeper and has the confidence of the coach, Martin Jol . This is always most important."
