Is De Gea the Man?
The fight for permanent possession of the keepers jersey looks set to continue into the New Year.
Already speculation has done the rounds about Sir Alex Ferguson pursuing the services of another keeper, but, as we head towards the festive season it appears that our young Spanish keeper, David de Gea, holds the majority of the cards.
Speaking about having to deal with the competition Anders Lindegaard continues to provide De Gea has remarked to the media,
"The biggest thing for me is that I`ve managed to work through some difficult times and those moments always make you stronger. It makes you a stronger person and a better player."
"I think I`ve improved right across the board, in all aspects of my game. I`m still only young and I`m learning every day."
"I`ve hopefully got a long career ahead of me, so I want to soak up as much knowledge as I can while I`m young."
From where we sit, the problem is that our quest to continue to dominate the domestic scene and move on towards doing the same at European level, means there is very little room for error, hence the speculation about Sir Alex making a move for another keeper.
Is David de Gea the man for that future?
Your thoughts would be gladly welcomed.
