The Van der Sar tweet that will delight all Manchester United fans

Van Der Sar

The former Manchester United goalkeeper has delivered an encouraging assessment of their 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Twitter.

Ex-Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar was highly enthused by his former side's convincing 3-0 win over Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham side on Sunday afternoon.

First-half goals from Marouane Fellaini, Michael Carrick and Wayne Rooney (with a world-class celebration to boot) did for Spurs and strengthened United's grip on fourth place.

And Van der Sar took to Twitter with a message that will delight all Manchester United fans after the win. It was also one that will instill fear into their rivals...

Quite.

With Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham all proving far from infallible this weekend, imagine a United side anywhere near the old champions managed by Sir Alex Ferguson?

And imagine a side actually taking to Louis van Gaal's methods?

So far this season, Manchester United have been no less than a muddle. Even positive results have been met with widespread criticism after disjointed displays.

Against Tottenham, however, Man United looked impressive - as if the players finally realised they were playing at Old Trafford. And the approval of a club icon like Van der Sar will surely please supporters to no end.
