Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar has rubbished suggestions he has decided to retire at the end of the season.

United goalkeeping coach Eric Steele said on Thursday: "I think Ed has made his mind up and said this is his last year."

But Van der Sar, 39, insisted that is not the case, telling www.sport-promotion.nl: "That's complete nonsense. I do not know where this story comes from but it is nonsense."

He added: "I don't yet know whether I will stop or continue after this season. Only in the course of this season will I think about it. Then I will decide and not before. For now I keep my focus on United.''

The Dutchman joined United in 2005 from Fulham after spells at Juventus and Ajax.
