Edwin van der Sar may be a Champions League veteran but his appetite for European success has not diminished.
It is 13 years since the goalkeeper won the competition with Ajax and he is determined to claim another winner’s medal with United before hanging up his boots.
The 37-year-old is one of five members of the current squad to have experienced Champions League glory – Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Wes Brown were all part of the Reds’ Treble-winning squad in 1999.
“Everybody wants to win it and we’ll be doing our very best to claim another medal,” Van der Sar told MUTV.
“It’s a long time since I won it and it’s the same for the boys who played in 1999, so everyone’s determined to repeat it.”
While some of his team-mates have claimed they do not mind who United are pitted against in Friday's quarter-final draw, Van der Sar revealed he would be happier not to face one of the three other English teams.
“I would prefer to play a European team," he said. "It’s part of the Champions League experience: you go to the airport, you fly somewhere, you rest in the hotel, you train the night before the game and you play in different surroundings in front of a hostile crowd.
“I would prefer that but if we’re drawn against an English side, we’ll deal with it.”
