Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has his own say on De Gea’s recent error in Sunday evening’s 1-1 draw with rivals Chelsea at Old Trafford.
The football pundit admits the shot stopper is going through a difficult stint in his career at Manchester United after the safe hand’s error in their 1-all draw with former premier league champions Chelsea on Sunday.
The Spaniard was heavily criticised for his display in United’s 2-0 defeat to arch-rivals Manchester City last week in the derby after he made below-par attempts to stop both strikes.
The Spain international goalkeeper, who has been connected with a transfer to La Liga giants Real Madrid throughout the English Premier League campaign, was also to blame in United’s 3-0 defeat to La Liga heavyweight Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League earlier in the month.
The Red Devils made a superb start to the clash on Sunday afternoon when former Chelsea attacker and Spain international Juan Mata opened the scoring from close range.
However, the West London giants levelled the scoreline few minutes before the interval when the under-fire goalkeeper couldn’t keep hold of Antonio Rudiger’s header and defender Marcos Alonso scored from close range.
The Former Manchester United right back was left stunned by De Gea’s latest mistake, telling Sky Sports he doesn’t know what to say.
Neville says the safe hand is having a nightmare of a time at Old Trafford, and went on to credit Chelsea and Spain international defender Alonso for his goal.
The 20-time English champions haven’t won the League crown since 2013, while United have only finished in the Premier League top four twice.
