David de Gea has sung the praises of Manchester United’s manager Jose Mourinho. 

With United winning eight of their last 11, averaging more than two goals a game, it feels as though a corner has been turned. 

De Gea believes the manager is the right man to take the club forward and believes the fans deserve better than what we’ve endured over the past few years. 

He’s a really great manager. He’s a winner; he wants to win every game, every competition. He’s working hard, he’s really close to the players and I think that’s really good.

He’s always joking with us, he’s a strong character and that’s good. Things are more positive and he’s a winner. You can feel he wants to win and I think the players know that we have to.

With the manager and the new players we’ve signed, everything is calmer now and it’s more of a normal situation. But now we need to do it on the pitch. We need to win games, and that’s that.

We all want to go in the same direction. We want to win things and we all know what Manchester United is. It’s a massive club, we know all the fans deserved more than they have had in the last few years and we need to play our best, give everything on the pitch and keep trying to win, win, win.
