David De Gea rues Man United’s ‘bad luck’
David De Gea reflects on Manchester United's injury problems
David De Gea believes that Manchester United have been suffering from “bad luck” due to their lengthy injury list this season.
The Red Devils have had to contend with injuries to the likes of Radamel Falcao, Jonny Evans, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo in recent weeks.
And the United shot-stopper feels that the club’s injury woes have played a big part in their stuttering start to life under Louis van Gaal.
“I must say I have never experienced this at any of my past clubs,” De Gea told United’s website.
“We’ve had so much bad luck and it’s made it difficult to maintain the high level of consistency and performance that we need with so many injuries. Hopefully we can get the injured players back as soon as possible.
“We would never use excuses but it’s always going to be a big setback when we have injuries and some sendings-off as well. It makes everyone’s work that bit more difficult.
“In terms of maintaining a solid level of performance we need to have the consistency of players in the squad so hopefully everyone will be fit very soon. That will help us continue to improve.”
