Czech Republic stopper Petr Cech insists Holland international Edwin van der Sar deserves his award as the top goalkeeper in the Barclays Premiership this season.
Chelsea custodian Cech would have almost certainly pushed his Manchester United rival close had he not spent three months out of action with a career-threatening skull injury sustained in a collision with Reading´s Stephen Hunt back in October.
"He has been voted the best goalkeeper this year and I voted for him. I think he had a great season and you always need a good goalkeeper to be successful," said Cech.
