Despite winning the Golden Glove, the legend’s diagnosis was harsh. Manchester United should get rid of David de Gea as soon as possible, he insisted.
De Gea has won the Golden Glove. De Gea was honored for keeping a total of 17 clean sheets in the English Premier League (EPL) this 스포츠토토 season, ahead of the likes of Alisson, Nick Pope, and Aaron Ramsdale (14 clean sheets). It is the second time since the 2017-18 season (18 clean sheets).
He also made a crucial save in the final game. De Gea saved Aleksandar Mitrovic’s penalty in the 26th minute of the league final against Fulham on Sunday (Sept. 29) to prevent his side from conceding further goals. United fought back with goals from Jadon Sancho and Bruno Fernandes to win the final game of the season and secure third place in the league.
It hadn’t been this way all season. De Gea has been a stalwart in goal for United for 12 years, but this season he has been uncharacteristically up and down, contributing to the team’s rollercoaster performance. According to soccer statistics outlet Opta, De Gea has made four “mistakes leading to goals” in all competitions this season, the most in the Premier League (EPL).
Nevertheless, it is likely that he will be re-signed in the first instance. “We hope to extend his contract,” said head coach Eric ten Hagh. De Gea is reportedly in favor of staying at Old Trafford, even if it means taking a pay cut.
“If I were him, I’d get rid of him quickly, he’s going to be a barrier to United winning trophies again, they’ll never win them (with him),” Roy Keane said on Sky Sports on Monday.
“De Gea has done well, he’s won a couple of player of the year awards. But what’s the big deal? It’s about what the team is achieving. I think he’s made too many mistakes in the last few years,” he said, arguing that the increasingly erratic De Gea should be replaced by another goalkeeper as soon as possible.
