Kawin chance at Man U

National coach Bryan Robson has recommended Thailand goalkeeper Kawin Thamsatchanan to Manchester United as a potential replacement of 40-year-old Edwin van der Sar.

Thai keeper Kawin Thamsatchanan.

The 20-year-old shot-stopper plays for Thai Premier League champions Muang Thong United and is regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in Asia.

Former United captain Robson is still a global ambassador for the club and believes that Kawin has what it takes to replace van der Sar.

''If I feel Thai players have got a chance of playing in Europe, there is no reason for me not to tell a few of my old mates at Manchester United. I've spoken to goalkeeping coach Eric Steele about Kawin,'' said Robson.

''He is young but he definitely has the potential to develop into a top goalkeeper.''

Kawin could soon arrive at Old Trafford for a trial which could lead to a permanent deal. He is excited about the possibility of playing for the Red Devils.

''I am looking forward to going to Manchester United. Van der Sar is one of the best goalkeepers in the world and he is one of my heroes,'' said Kawin.

''To one day replace him as Manchester United goalkeeper is my dream.''
