Man Utd midfielder Herrera rubbishes De Gea critics: He'll fight back

21 July 2018

The 27-year-old, who arrived at United from Atletico Madrid in 2011, made just one save during the tournament, while he conceded a howler against Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal in Spain's opener.

De Gea also let in two against Morocco, and failed to save a single spot-kick in their agonising shoot-out exit to Russian Federation. And Herrera insists there is no reason why De Gea would not agree to fresh terms, while backing him to bounce back from his World Cup woe.

Herrera said: "They are very good". "I remember when I was in Spain and he signed for the club, the first couple of months were hard for him".

He'll nearly certainly be back to his best once August comes around though as he goes into the new campaign as a four-time Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award victor.

"I like him because he is very courageous".

"He's the best goalkeeper in the world by far and he'll show it again". When you are the best goalkeeper in the world and you don't make those unbelievable saves, everyone is going to talk.

Let's take a look at the first, a familiar face to fans of English football and a player that has flourished into one of the best wing-backs in the business.

De Gea is set to join up with United on their U.S. tour in time for next Wednesday's LA friendly with AC Milan, before facing arch rivals Liverpool three days later in MI and Real Madrid in Miami.

Chong left Feyenoord's academy for Manchester United in 2016.

The Portuguese is without a host of his World Cup players in the United States as Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku, Marouane Fellaini, Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard, Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones, Victor Lindelof and Ashley Young enjoy a break after their extended exploits in Russian Federation, with David De Gea, Nemanja Matic, new signing Fred and Alexis Sanchez set to join the squad in the next few days.

"We have - I think - the biggest amount of fans in the world", said Herrera. Angel also has a lot of quality and the striker [Greenwood], I didn't know he was 16 years old and he was fighting against men, so I am very confident and I hope one day that they kick our ass out of the club.

'He told me 'This is fantastic - they are the best'.

"They are very good".

"He's the best keeper I've ever seen in my life and he's with us, so we have more chances to win titles".
