After receiving a lot of stick from the press and some United fans, de Gea has done brilliantly well after losing his first team place to Anders Lindegaard, who then picked up an injury. He made incredible saves in February, most notably against Chelsea and Norwich, and is chuffed that the fans have recognised his contribution.
“It’s great news and it’s special to know it’s our own fans who have voted,” he told the official site. “It shows there’s a nice understanding and feeling between me and them. It’s proof that I’m doing something right and it’s fantastic that the fans have recognised this.”
