Return of United keeper pleases Evans

Published Add your comment

Manchester United defender Jonny Evans is pleased to see Edwin van der Sar back between the posts.

The veteran Dutch goalkeeper was sidelined first through injury and then after his wife suffered a serious illness. But he played in the Carling Cup semi-final first-leg defeat by Manchester City in midweek after making his comeback in the victory against Burnley last weekend.

Evans said: "Edwin makes a great difference. He is a great communicator and has real composure."

He added: "You can pass the ball back to him and you know he can play it out with either foot. It makes life a lot easier.

"At 39 he has the experience that the other goalkeepers don't have. Keepers don't get into their prime until their 30s.

"He is probably playing the best football of his life. He is a really good professional and a very nice man."
