Van der Sar backing Wayne Rooney to remain at Man United

London: Former Manchester United keeper Edwin Van der Sar has insisted Wayne Rooney should stay with the football club.

Big-spending Paris Saint-Germain is reported to be interested in signing the England striker.

But Van der Sar, who won the Champions League with Rooney at United in 2008, has said he could enjoy a new lease of life under boss David Moyes.

The Dutchman, now marketing director at Ajax, said that there has been so much pressure on him.

He added that the change of manager could be big for United, but he did not think Rooney would find a better atmosphere at other clubs.
