Jokes! Ex-Man United keeper Edwin van der Sar reclaims his birthday tweet for Newcastle’s Tim Krul

Dutch Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul celebrated his 26th birthday this week and fellow countryman Edwin van der Sar wished him Happy Birthday on Twitter.

Retired as a legendary Manchester United goalkeeper, van der Sar accidentally wished Tim Krul a clean sheet for his birthday.

He had to take back his earlier tweet after realising Newcastle were welcoming Manchester United to St James’ Park.

Newcastle slipped to 9th last weekend after a 4-0 defeat to Southampton.
