Fergie Backs De Gea!

Fergie Backs De Gea!

With the first trophy of the season already claimed, the Community Shield, Sir Alex Ferguson went on the offensive when it came to defending his recent goalkeeping acquisition.

David De Gea, might not have had the best of games but he still has the backing of Sir Alex and our Scottish manager was quick to offer a barbed response remarking,

"De Gea will play - we spent £18 million on him so the long term view is to give him a chance."

"He was unfortunate with the second goal (at Wembley) and had no chance with the first.'

"It was interesting that there was no criticism of Joe Hart. It was exactly the same type of goal (he conceded) and he`s your bloody national keeper."


Nice to see, as we chase our 20th top-flight title, that Sir Alex has lost none of that drive, determination and acid tongue that have all served him well.

De Gea was stranded for the first goal, no keeper would've saved that. At the same time there's no denying he was at fault for the second but people must remember his just moved to a new country, his learning a new language and adjusting to a new climate and way of life and he's only 20 and his debut was against local rivals, at Wembley, in a final. Also, people were very quick to forget how well he read the developing danger and came out to collect the ball and also made a fantastic save against Johnson.

I don't get it - why on earth would we buy him otherwise - he really is one thats going to be with us for a long time - hes going to make mistakes - thats normal for any new keeper coming from another league - we just need to make sure we protect him more - when his english improves that will also help him no end..
