David De Gea’s message for new Man United boss Jose Mourinho

David De Gea comments on Jose Mourinho's arrival at Manchester United

David De Gea has revealed his delight at seeing Jose Mourinho be appointed as Manchester United’s new manager.

The Portuguese coach finally signed a three-year contract with the Red Devils last week after months of speculation linking him with the role.

United opted to draft in the former Chelsea boss after they sacked Louis van Gaal following the club’s fifth placed finish in the Premier League.

De Gea’s future continues to be a source of speculation, with Real Madrid said to still be interested in luring him back to Spain after their failed attempts to sign the shot-stopper last summer.

However, the Spain international appears to have indicated his desire to stay at Old Trafford with his latest comments about the new Manchester United manager.

De Gea is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail: “Talk about Jose Mourinho and you’re talking about a winner.

“Winning is United’s, Jose’s and my philosophy. We can make a great team and I welcome him.”
