Edwin van der Sar on the Way to Make World Record

(This entry was originally posted on Wednesday, February 18th, 2009)

Manchester United goal keeper Edwin van der Sar has been in sparkling form so far this season and is now on the verge of an European league record for remaining unbeaten highest number of minutes. It has been 1,275 minutes since he last conceded a goal in premier league and in doing so, he has already broken the Football League record (1,103 mins), the Premier League record (1,025 mins) and the British league record (1,155 mins). However, the Dutch goalkeeper is still 178 minutes away to reach the mark of 1,390 minutes for the all time European record which is currently held by Verlinden who made this record for Club Brugge in 1990.

However, Edwin van der Sar is still far away from achieving the world record for league games which is held by Brazilian goalkeeper Mazaropi who achieved this distinction while playing for Vasco da Gama in 1977-78 season. That means, Manchester United keeper can not concede any goal for another 7 league matches to reach the world record mark. Manchester United will face Fulham and Blackburn Rovers.
