The 40-year-old spent eight years in the Dutch capital between 1991
and 1999, making 311 appearances for the club. He then moved on for
spells with Juventus, Fulham and finally Manchester United, playing
his final match before his retirement in their 3-1 Champions League
final defeat to Barcelona last weekend. Ajax confirmed on their
website they will pay their own tribute to former Holland
international Van der Sar with a testimonial on August 3 at the
Amsterdam ArenA involving former team-mates.
