Man Utd goalkeeper Van der Saar slams Lille

Lille threatened to walk off the pitch during the game, but the Dutch goalkeeper says there are no problems with the goal that was scored.

Van der Sar said: “It is obvious as a keeper you have to be aware of situations like that.

“The rules are the same everywhere. If a player asks the referee if he can take a quick free-kick, he can take it.

“We have seen this kind of thing happen all over Europe and Ryan showed good imagination by taking advantage of the situation.

“As a keeper, that kind of thing will probably happen to you once in your career. It was a good time for it to happen in our favour.”
