The signing of David De Gea has undoubtedly divided fans.
A remarkable talent, errors early in his United career have left some sceptical over his ability to become United’s number 1.
There have been calls for Anders Lindegaard to be given a chance and De Gea dropped but at such a young age and having commanded such a fee it would be folly to do so, so early into his United career.
“David made a couple of mistakes in his first games, which we didn’t expect and nor did he.
“It was unusual because his form at Atletico Madrid as an 18-year-old was sensational.
“There is no doubt we have a player of great potential. Our job at this club is to realise that potential and make sure he becomes a top goalkeeper.
“He’ll do that once he gains experience and adapt to the physical nature of the league.
“It is a different game here compared to Spain – there are more crosses to deal with and there is more contact. Bit by bit, we will get there with him.”
