Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has come out to say that De Gea is the best goalkeeper in the world. He recently revealed this after the Spaniard’s performance vs Villarreal in the UCL.
According to him, De Gea was fantastic in the game despite having a difficult summer and he is happy that his team got the desired outcome.
Ole added that even if David didn’t start at the Euros, he returned to MUFC with immense determination and a brilliant work rate.
His words, “Thankfully we had the best goalkeeper in the world tonight.”
“David was fantastic. Second-half, they had more of the ball, it was open and they deserved to lead.”
“Old Trafford is magic. Champions League at Old Trafford… sometimes that history can help us and tonight Cristiano came up with a good goal and Alex [Telles] came up with a fantastic goal.”
“[De Gea] had a difficult summer. He went to the Euros and didn’t play there, but he’s really come back with a determination, a work rate, that I enjoy. Again, he got a deserved outcome.”
“He saved us tonight. We have to be realistic and say that we’ve got two good keepers in Tom [Heaton] and Dean [Henderson], but today David deserves Man of the Match.”
Bruno added, “I always had the feeling we could win the game.”
“And when they scored I felt we could come again and turn it around. After the goal of Alex, the push from the fans was unbelievable. Some amazing saves from David to keep the score at 1-1. Then at the end… strikers have that feeling to score and Cristiano helped us again.”
“We finished with two strikers and we know any ball in the box they will be alive to it. We know they can score at any moment and that is why we continued with crosses. We are happy with three points.”
