Man Utd’s Van der Sar: Smith can do the job

He said: “I think we can cope. Hopefully Louis and Ole will be back soon, but in the meantime, I’m confident Alan Smith can do some damage and show why he is a Manchester United player. Initially, he struggled a bit with the speed of the game, but I think he is back to his best now. This is a chance for him, and I hope he can grab it.”
