De Gea stronger for being benched

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea claims the time he spent as a substitute made him into a stronger person, according to the Metro.



De Gea said: “The time I spent on the bench helped me to reflect and think hard. It allowed me to regroup and made me more determined to succeed.


The Spaniard was signed by Manchester United from Atletico Madrid in summer 2011 following the retirement of Edwin van der Sar. De Gea has made 26 appearances thus far in his inaugural Manchester United campaign but did not play at all for the senior side between December 31 and January 28. Anders Lindegaard stepped in for de Gea, playing four consecutive games against Newcastle United, Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers and Arsenal. In that time, United lost only to Newcastle, 3-0.


De Gea returned to the United starting XI for the FA Cup defeat to Liverpool but the BBCreported that the goalkeeper was at fault for Liverpool’s first goal when he failed to deal with a corner eventually turned in by Daniel Agger as United fell to a 2-1 defeat.
