Agree, i think this is really for safety reasons more than anything. Over the next few years, TK and BF will be given more and more games.
Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar has signed a new one-year contract extension, tying him to the club until the end of the 2009 season.
Van der Sar joined from Fulham in June 2005
The 37-year-old had been considering retirement at the end of this season.
"He is number one at the moment, but you can't guarantee players a position and say they'll definitely be in your team," said boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
"Edwin will want to be number one next season but Ben Foster will be back and I am sure he will want to be too."
England international Foster is currently sidelined after cruciate knee ligament surgery.
There were suggestions Van der Sar could be handed a role on the Old Trafford backroom staff as goalkeeping coach Tony Coton is currently sidelined following a recent knee operation.
But Ferguson stressed the Dutchman's new deal was "totally as a player".
