Man Utd stopper Van der Sar puts 40th birthday celebrations on hold
The veteran Dutchman passed the landmark birthday last weekend, when he was holed up with the United squad at their city centre base at the Lowry ahead of the Premier League win over Tottenham.
He will probably arrange something during the international break later this month given he abandoned his Holland career after Euro 2008 having amassed a record 130 caps.
"I celebrated my birthday in the Lowry the day before the Tottenham game. I wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere else," he smiled.
"I did have a quiet meal in town on Saturday night with some friends from Holland but I had two glasses of wine and that was about it because we had a game on Tuesday.
"Even this weekend it is going to be hard because we have a midweek game against City. I will just have to skip the celebrations for my 40th and do it another time."
