Louis van Gaal: Why I am happy with Man United’s David De Gea
Louis van Gaal praises David De Gea following the Spaniard's recent good form for Manchester United
Louis van Gaal has heaped praise on David De Gea following the goalkeeper’s impressive recent form for Manchester United.
The Spanish shot-stopper pulled off a number of second-half saves to help United secure a 2-1 victory over Stoke City at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.
And the Red Devils boss has expressed his delight at the way the 24-year-old has been improving his game since he took over at the club during the summer.
“De Gea is a goalkeeper so he has to stop them,” said Van Gaal.
“I think he has two or three shots on his goal [against Stoke] and that is it.
“It is very difficult for a goalkeeper to keep the concentration and the focus but he improves every week so I am happy with him.”
Tuesday’s win kept United fourth in the Premier League table on 25 points.
