​Man Utd keeper legend comes out of retirement at 45!

Former Manchester United keeper Edwin van der Sar is coming out retirement at the age of 45 to play for a Dutch amateur team.

Van der Sar answered an SOS after VV Noordwijk - his first senior club - were left without cover when their keeper picked up an injury.

"We are thrilled that Edwin wants to help," Noordwijk director Peter Vink told Voetbal in de Bollenstreek.

"After deliberation he agreed to keep goal next Saturday against Jodan Boys."

He added: "We assume that it is basically only for one game."
