9. Edwin Van Der Sar
Van Der Sar is the oldest soccer player to win the Premier League. Manchester United wanted the Dutch international for a long time, but he arrived late to Old Trafford. However, it’s often the case though that goalkeepers actually get better with age. Their maturity and decision-making improve so they peak later than outfield players.
That was definitely the case for Van Der Sar. The former Best European Goalkeeper was over 40 when he won the Premier League in 2011. In the 2008–09 season, he set the world league clean sheet record by not conceding a single goal for 1,311 minutes. To sum it up, he was an incredible, elite professional.
