Van der Sar, who won the Champions League with Manchester United in 2008 after a penalty shootout, was placed in intensive care on Friday.
Edwin van der Sar will remain in intensive care for the time being, Ajax said in a statement.
His condition is stable but still a concern. Ajax is sharing this information on behalf of Annemarie van der Sar, Edwin’s wife.
The van der Sar family as well as Ajax are grateful and deeply touched by the many messages of support.
Van der Sar stepped down as CEO of the Amsterdam club at the end of the season.
Dutch media reported Friday that Van der Sar, 52, was on vacation in Croatia when he became ill.
Van der Sar has played for clubs such as Ajax, Juventus and United. He has made 130 appearances for the Dutch national team.
He was on Ajax’s board of directors for over a decade, but stepped down after the club finished third in the Eredivisie last season.
After almost 11 years on the board I am tired, Van der Sar said when he announced his departure from Ajax in May.
The 38-year-old Chhetri, who will play his last Asian Cup in Doha (January 12 to February 10), has also applied to play at least one international friendly against Asian countries ranked in the top seven, such as Iran, Japan or Saudi Arabia, before the continental masterpiece.
We have to face Australia, Uzbekistan and Syria in the Asian Cup (group matches), so Stimac (as well as goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu) has been talking about long training camps. We need it and I really hope we get it, Chhetri said during a virtual interaction with the media.
When you go to a national camp, players have injuries and they come with different psychological levels from their clubs. You have to take care of all that and that takes more time, he said, attributing the team’s success in the last two tournaments to a long camp lasting over 50 days.
India won the tri-national international tournament in Manipur (March 22-28) before winning titles at the Intercontinental Cup (June 9-18) in Bhubaneswar and the SAFF Championship (June 21-July 4) in Bengaluru. The players were in the national camp from mid-May till the SAFF Championship.
Stimac said he needs at least a four-week camp to perform well in the Az CupThe All India Football Federation (AIFF) leadership indicated that his demand would be difficult to fulfill as clubs may not agree to let their players go for such a long period of time in the midst of the domestic season.
Ultimately, how many days we get (for the national camp) depends on the negotiations (between the parties concerned) but I am really hoping to get as many days as possible, the talismanic striker said.
Chhetri, who was named the Most Valuable Player after being the top scorer in the SAFF championship, also said the team needs to play at least one international friendly against a country ranked among the top six or seven in the continent before the Asia Cup.
If we play at least two or three important international friendly matches before the Asian Cup, including at least one against a country ranked in the top six or seven in Asia, it will give us a good idea of ourselves and make us more ready.
If I throw in a cry, it could be against Iran, Japan or Saudi Arabia. If we don’t play against Japan, Iran or South Korea, we won’t know the level of Australia (India’s strongest rivals in the Asia Cup).
To prepare forFor such big matches against top teams, we need a training camp of four weeks. If we have five days of national camp, we won’t be ready for these big matches. To face Australia in the Asian Cup, we will need a level at least a couple of levels higher than what we have in the ISL, and for that we need more preparation time.
