Former Netherlands goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar remains in intensive care but is communicating and “not in life-threatening danger,” his wife said Tuesday.

Van der Sar, who won the Champions League with Manchester United in 2008 after a penalty shootout, was admitted to a hospital in Croatia last Friday after suffering a bleed around the brain.
