Manchester United’s David de Gea has done it again.
Last night, the goalkeeper won his fourth Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award; more than any other player.
The Spaniard is a special player and we’re lucky to have him. All season long, yet again, he’s made some unbelievable saves to keep his side in close football matches, and he’s easily worth ten points a season to the Old Trafford Club.
When it was announced that he’d won the trophy, I don’t think anyone was really that surprised. Sure, you could have made a case for Romelu Lukaku perhaps, but there was always going to be one winner.
Looking fine, @D_DeGea ?

I think United fans have felt that De Gea has been the best goalkeeper on planet earth for the last few years, but now the footballing world as a whole is beginning to take notice.
We’re lucky to call him our own and long may his time as a Red Devil continue. I guess the only downside to having such an insanely gifted overseas player is the fact that he’ll be constantly linked with a move away, but he seems happy at the moment and I don’t think he’ll be leaving Manchester this summer…
