David De Gea has hit back at his critics, claiming that they have magnified his mistakes.

De Gea has been in brilliant form of late, and further proved his worth against Spurs yesterday with a save early in the second half from a deflected Jake Livermore shot to keep United in the lead.

But early in the season, as was to be expected, he struggled. His errors lead to him being labelled a dodgy keeper and he was written off by some who wanted to see his place in goal given to Anders Lindegaard.

But speaking to Spanish paper AS, De Gea has dismissed those who wrote him off:

“Honestly, I think I have done more good things than bad things, but perhaps what I have done wrong has been reported on more.

“Of course I am self-critical. I have to be. Any footballer must learn from his mistakes to improve day after day and know what his weaknesses are.”

    The lad is improving now…since that game against chelsea at the bridge(where he made those 2 magical saves in the dying minutes of the game)he has been wonderful. The haters love magnifying his mistakes…like they are talking about the defoe goal where they claimed that it was de gea’s error that lead to the goal and ignoring a great performance by the kid where he looked totally confident and made NO fumbles/gaffes etc and made some match winning saves as well…or what about his performance against norwich away where he won the man of the match award? or what about the liverpool game at old trafford where he made that last minute off jhonson’s shot in the last minute of the game?…..the thing is that apart from his “goal stopping” ability…his other attributes like “aerial ability, awareness, intelligence, confidence, judgement” have improved vastly. Yea yea he had a bad start but not all the great players have a good debut season…remember vidic? when he joined united back in 2005 he was crap…and last season he was the best CB in the world!…I bet…next gea will be back to his best!
