De Gea: Every Day I’m Happier In Manchester

Following weeks of unfair criticism in the press, David de Gea answered all his critics with a blinding performance at the Bernabeu against Real Madrid.

There had been some rumours in the press that De Gea was prepared to leave the club in the summer but our Spanish keeper has confirmed he is happy in Manchester.

“I am very happy in Manchester. Every day I am happier,” De Gea told reporters after the game.

Whilst he made several great saves, the best two came from shots Coentrao, with him getting his finger tips to one and his foot (at waist height!) to the other.

“Stopping to Coentrao? That was just a very quick decision. I was acting on instinct,” he said. “It was a great match. Real Madrid and Manchester United did very well. [Madrid] have a very strong attack, so we needed to be strong in defence. Real Madrid will attack at Old Trafford. They know they have to win to advance and we will do our best to stop them.”

    And no swapping keepers from week to week has helped him no end. Good lad.

  4. DreadedRed says:

    David, I am very happy having you at Manchester United. Every day I am happier.

    @Little Red Ant – playing week in week out has brought him on in leaps and bounds.

    I was thinking how Utd bring in young kids and make them part of the family although the Club itself is a mega business.By the time it gets to the pitch level still has the small time feel about it,not a bunch of highly paid individuals but a team of lads working together for one cause.
    the reason i mention this is Eric Steele taking Spanish lessons to have better communication with DDG and protecting him like a father figure,thought that was pretty fucking cool

    @wayne is he really doing that?

    wow amazing , you said it man, it’s a family. Let’s hope that the next manager does that and that’s why it’s important to get someone fro mthe family,

    Giggsy, Solskjaer or Scholesy :)

    Looks like Wayne has warmed up to having a young and inexperienced keeper :)
