Former Manchester United keeper Mark Bosnich believes David de Gea 'proved everyone wrong' with his brilliant display against Real Madrid.
Last Night, he did just that. He saved Definite Goals.
His shot stopping ability is world class. But he just needs to hit the weights harder and command his area, be more intimidating on crosses and claim them. Who can forget Van Der Sar and Schmeichel in particular raging at their defence and making that area their own? Need to see more of this from De Gea: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_S... I think it will come in time. He is still young. He probably feels a bit of a kid playing with super experienced old stalwarts like Ferdinand and Vidic. But even so he has to learn to boss them and his area better. I think he will as he gets older.
we brought Van Der Sar when he was coming towards the end of his peak years so of course he was going to command the area he had 20 years before then to learn. Schmeichel was also very experienced when United brought him. De Gea as he has more experience will be able to command his defence better.
