Edwin Van der Sar is a former professional Dutch footballer who played as a goalkeeper. During his career he has played for Ajax, Juventus, Fulham and Manchester United. He is the most capped player in the Netherlands national team’s history. He currently works as the chief executive officer at Ajax. He came out of retirement to play for Dutch amateur team VV Noordwijk. He started his senior career at Ajax and is considered to be a member of a golden generation of players at the club. He remained there for nine years before moving to Italian club Juventus and then to England, first to Fulham and then to Manchester United. He is one of the few footballers to have won the UEFA Champions League with two different teams – with Ajax in 1995 and Manchester United in 2008; in the latter, he was also named UEFA Man of the Match. Van der Sar also won the UEFA Cup with Ajax in 1992. Regarded as one of the greatest and most complete keepers in football history, Van der Sar was a large, athletic, yet slender goalkeeper, who excelled at handling crosses due to his height and physique; an intelligent goalkeeper, in addition to his reflexes and shot-stopping, he was also known for his calm composure, and his ability to organise his defence. However, Van der Sar was known in particular for his skill with the ball at his feet, as well as his accurate distribution with either foot, which gave him the ability to launch counter-attacks from his area with long balls. Due to his ability in possession, he also functioned as a “sweeper-keeper” on occasion throughout his career, in particular during his time with Ajax.
