Just when you thought Sergio Ramos couldn’t endear himself to Manchester United fans any further, the Spaniard takes to Twitter to back David de Gea.
The Red Devils goalkeeper made a monumental error that led to Cristiano Ronaldo scoring for Portugal; eventually, the mistake would go on to cost Spain the victory.
However, this sort of backing from Ramos is exactly what you love to see. His leadership qualities were evident in the Champions League final last month, now he’s doing exactly the same for his country.
De Gea hasn’t enjoyed the best of starts to his Spain career, but us United fans know just how good he is. Don’t forget, when he first moved to Old Trafford, he was shaky at times back then…
No se trata de no equivocarse,
se trata de no rendirse nunca.
It's not about never failing,
it's about never giving up.
En mi equipo siempre, @D_DeGea
Always on my team.

It’s no coincidence that teams with Ramos at the heart are successful. He deploys this win-at-all-costs attitude, and he knows that team harmony breeds results. This will almost certainly ease De Gea’s concerns, too.
The best players in the world respond. I’m fully expecting Spain to go far in this competition, and no doubt De Gea will play a huge part in any potential success that they may go on to have.
