Former Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar plays down reports that he could step into a coaching role next season.

Former Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar has quelled suggestions that he could go into coaching next season.

The 42-year-old, who is regarded as one of the best stoppers to play in the Premier League, retired from the sport in 2011 following a 21-year career.

"I didn't think coaching was my thing - I wasn't interested. I moved back to Holland and did a masters in sports management," he said at Manchester's Soccerex forum.

The Dutchman also played for Fulham.
