David de Gea has been absolutely world-class for Manchester United once again this season – even scooping his third Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award in the process.
However, he hasn’t had the best of starts at the World Cup, making one or two errors in Spain’s opening three games. Now, according to AS, translated by The Metro, Fernando Hierro is considering dropping De Gea for their knockout game against hosts Russia.
I don’t know what it is about Spain, but they’re certainly quick to pull the trigger when problems arise. They must just have a completely different mentality and mindset over there, but I find it absurd that they’re already on De Gea’s back.
We’re talking about the best goalkeeper on the planet right now. At the end of the day, everyone makes mistakes, that’s just the nature of the position. He’s the type of bloke who’ll only come back stronger from this, and dropping him now does nobody any favours.
If this means that Real Madrid changes their minds about wanting to sign De Gea, then this could well be a blessing in disguise for Manchester United. It could mean our star man hangs around for a little while longer…
