Ajax lost 3-1 in Lyon on Thursday, but got through to the final 5-4 on aggregate. They will face Manchester United on the 24th of May.

After the game, Van der Sar said, ”I am from nature a relaxed person who can sit and watch a game of football. But when I arrived last night at the stadium you could tell how hard we have all worked at the club to be able to achieve this.

”Our opponent in the final is very special in Manchester United. I played for four clubs in my career and at those two clubs where I was most successful is where I have my best memories.”
