What’s wrong with David de Gea’s form?
What’s wrong with David de Gea’s form? Such is the list of hitches at Manchester United that David de Gea might still be somewhere nearer the bottom. Selected in the PFA Team of the Year for each of the four seasons preceding to this one, De Gea was a “one-man wall” for United for much of that period, according to Gary Neville. But the cracks in that wall are starting to appear.
“The goalkeeper has to do better,” Gary Neville said. “It’s a really, really bad mistake. David de Gea, he’s been superb for Manchester United for so many years but this season, it’s just not happening for him. Those feet are letting him down. So many times we’ve seen him kick the ball away. Straight at him, off his shin, into the back of the net.”
It’s been a depressed time for De Gea. He was slow to react to Gylfi Sigurdsson’s long-range shot in the 4-0 defeat to Everton and let Lionel Messi’s tame effort sneak under him in that beat down in Barcelona. “I was in the Nou Camp for that error and it was something that shook me, watching David de Gea make a mistake like that,” added Neville. Unfortunately, it’s becoming a style.
