Man Utd star believes he’s in the ‘best shape of his career’

Man Utd goalkeeper David De Gea believes that he is in the “best shape of his career” and he hopes there are “more trophies to come” for him before he retires.

The 31-year-old has been United’s number one goalkeeper since the start of the 2011/12 season.

In this time, he has played over 450 times across all competitions. He has lifted the Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup.

His number one spot came under threat from Dean Henderson last season. But De Gea has been able to re-establish himself as the club’s first-choice goalkeeper.

The Spaniard has been one of United’s standout players in what has been a disappointing season on the whole in 2021/22.

As quoted by the Daily Mail, De Gea has suggested that he has “more good moments to live” as a footballer:

“It’s been a long time but, hopefully, there are more years to come and more trophies to come,’ said De Gea.

“More good moments to live. So what can I say? I’m massively proud of what I did for this club and to play for this badge. It’s amazing.

“I feel maybe in one of the best shapes of my career. I feel very well.

“Maybe some people think I’m older because I’ve been in the game for many, many years. But I’m still young for a goalkeeper.

“I’m still learning every day, giving 100 per cent in training. So like I say, hopefully there are more years and more games to come.”

Elsewhere, Simon Jordan has urged Ralf Rangnick to sell Anthony Martial, as he can “get you the sack”.

It has been reported that the attacker is keen to leave Man Utd during the winter transfer window.

Jordan said: “Get the cab ready and put Martial in it as quickly as you possibly can and you’ve got an opportunity,” Jordan said. “Because I think Martial is one of those players that gets you the sack.

“I think he is the archetypal Man Utd player of the last half a decade that, on paper, looks a great player, got all the ability, but when it comes to it has the heart the size of a pea.

“He wants to go, so good riddance if I’m United.”
