Edwin van der Sar is happy with his relationship with Manchester United goalkeepers Ben Foster and Tomasz Kuszczak.

"As a goalkeeper you are always more separate from the main group than the outfield players, and there is only one place to compete for," he said. "But there is a great relationship between myself, Tom and Ben. We do our work and help each other. We're trying to learn from each other.

"I'm always willing to help them, of course. I give them advice and they learn things from me. But I can always learn things from them, too.

"They may be young, but there is always a different way to do things. I see things and think: 'Hey, that's interesting - maybe I could try that.' You can do that with any goalkeeper."
