There has been much said about David De Gea this season, but the Spaniard continues to prove sceptics wrong.
There have been calls for Sir Alex to replace the former Atletico Madrid stopper, with Gary Neville especially harsh in his criticism of De Gea after United’s draw with Tottenham, but Sir Alex has stuck by the 21 year old and as he continues to grow United will benefit in the long run.
Speaking in his press conference ahead of the game with Real Madrid, Sir Alex backed his young signing saying that mistakes are to be expected but he is coming good:
‘He’s like a young kid. He wobbles, he gets up. He wobbles, he gets up. Eventually he walks. The boy is walking now’
De Gea is proving his worth to the team week in and week out with quality saves, but United will need him to be on top form tomorrow when they face Real Madrid too.
