Following Manchester United’s exit from the Europa League last night, David de Gea has claimed now the club needs to focus on winning the title.
“It is very important for us now to try and secure the Premier League,” he said. “We are first. We are the leaders. Manchester City are in good form but we have the team and the supporters to win the league. We have a big game coming up at Wolves on Sunday and that is what we must concentrate on now.”
De Gea has also played down the differences between the English and Spanish league, claiming he is now feeling more settled and adjusted to football here.
“The English league is a bit more aggressive but football is football,” he said. “There is no real difference. Little by little I feel my confidence in England is growing. In the beginning it was all new, the place, the country, the team. But gradually I am getting used to everything and hopefully that continues.”
