Morgan Schneiderlin has heaped praise on David De Gea and says that the goalkeeper is fully committed to Manchester United.

De Gea was on the verge of securing a transfer to Real Madrid during the summer transfer window before the move fell through due to the necessary paperwork not being submitted in time.

The Spanish shot-stopper has since committed his long-term future to the Red Devils by signing a new contract at Old Trafford.

And Schneiderlin – who signed for the Red Devils from Southampton in the summer – was full of praise for the goalkeeper after he pulled off a string of impressive saves to help United wrap up a 1-0 win over Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

Schneiderlin told MUTV after the game: “David is a very important player in our squad.

“We are very happy to have him and happy that he didn’t go last summer. He is fully committed to this football club.

“When you have a player like this in goal, it’s good for us, because we know we are not going to concede many goals and he is going to make some saves.”

United, who are fifth in the table and two points behind fourth-placed Tottenham, are now preparing for their home clash against Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday.
