Edwin: Ronny can win the lot

Edwin van der Sar says Cristiano Ronaldo will keep on winning football’s top trophies by staying at United.

All summer the Reds winger has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, but Sir Alex Ferguson has said that Ronaldo will be a United player next season.

And van der Sar, who saved the penalty that clinched Champions League glory in Moscow in May, insists United are on the up and up.

"There have been a lot of things said and it is a very personal situation but we have a great team here, we play in a great stadium, with great fans and we have an opportunity to win more," Edwin told Sky Sports News.

"It is not that the team is going backwards. We have other trophies to play for, like the Super Cup and Intercontinental Cup. You don't get the chance to play in those competitions very often because you need to win the Champions League to qualify.”

The 37-year-old has been around long enough to recognise in a team the potential to win trophies, and clearly that is what he sees at Old Trafford.

"In my opinion, being at Manchester United is a great way to play at the highest level and win trophies with a team that is very closely knitted together,” he added.

"Cristiano also has a contract here. Sometimes things change but we have a good squad here without any question."
