Edwin van der Sar Out after Pathetic Pre-Season Friendly
How pathetic is that? Why on earth football teams need to play so many pre-season `friendlies` is beyond me! By the end of every season many teams are complaining about the length of the season here in England, yet they make it that way because they start touring the world well before the proper season even gets under way. No wonder they are so tired by June.
The more games, the more risk of injury. Right? And now Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar is out for up to two months after breaking a finger in a friendly against Bayern Munich last week when saving a penalty.
