Van der Sar, 52, won the Premier League four times while at United, as well as the Champions League in 2008, which he also won while at Ajax.

After retiring, Van der Sar, who also played at Fulham before joining United, returned to Ajax and took over as chief executive in 2016. But at the end of last season he decided to step down.

“On Friday, Edwin van der Sar had bleeding around his brain. He is currently in hospital in the intensive care unit and is in stable condition,” Ajax said in a statement on Twitter.

“Once there is more concrete information, an update will follow. Everyone at Ajax wishes Edwin a speedy recovery. We’re thinking of you.”

Following a disappointing season for Ajax, the club finishing third in the Eredivisie and missing out on Champions League qualification, Van der Sar announced he would be stepping down from his role after almost 11 years on the club’s board.

“I feel the need to distance myself, rest and do other things,” he said on Twitter in late May.

“It’s a bad feeling to take a decision about the future of this wonderful club in the coming period. That’s why I decided to resign.”

Man United also expressed their concern over Van der Sar’s condition. “Sending all our love and strength to you Edwin,” the English club wrote on Twitter.

Fulham also sent their message of support, “Everyone at Fulham Football Club wishes Edwin a speedy recovery. We’re thinking of you.”

The Professional Footballers’ Association tweeted: “Thoughts of everyone at the PFA are with Edwin and his family.”

After more than 200 appearances for Ajax and European success as part of Louis van Gaal’s side, the Dutch goalkeeper moved to Juventus before signing for Fulham in 2001.
