Man Utd legend Van der Sar defends Man City keeper Hart over England howlers

Edwin van der Sar has jumped to the defence of Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart.

Van der Sar, who has now retired as Manchester United's No.1, watched with sympathy as City stopper Hart was blamed for both Swiss goals in the 2-2 draw with England last Saturday.

The Dutch legend has seen all great keepers have an off day and still reckons there's a massive future ahead for the City star.

Van der Sar said: "Joe Hart has been excellent this season so what happened at Wembley shouldn't erase that.

"He's still young and has got loads of time to develop into an even better keeper for club and country."
