David de Gea has told United Review that he likes ‘This is the one’ by The Stone Roses, the song which is played ahead of kick-off at Old Trafford. The song was introduced at the request of Gary Neville when he was captain.
“I like metal and rock bands like Avenged Sevenfold and Metallica,” he said. “When I put it on in the dressing room, everyone moans! Most of the other players are into hip-hop. I also love This Is The One, the song we come out to at Old Trafford – it gives me a big lift for the game.”
De Gea’s best mates at the club are Javier Hernandez and Antonio Valencia who really helped him settle in when he first joined the club.
“I get on with all the lads but I guess Chicharito and Antonio Valencia most of all,” he added. “They were brilliant when I first arrived, translating for me and answering any questions I had. Javier is a real livewire off the field – he lifts every room he walks into and his enthusiasm is infectious.”
