High praise for Red Devils colleague from the ‘Little Pea’.
Manchester United front man Javier Hernandez has hailed club-mate David De Dea as the best goalkeeper in the world on current form, reports the Daily Mail.
The Spain international has only been at Old Trafford for the past two seasons now, having originally joined the Red Devils from Liga outfit Atletico de Madrid in the summer of 2011 for £17.8 million,
However, the shot stopper had to endure a tough debut campaign in the Premier League, only to then turn his form around in the previous season as United won the top-flight title for a record-breaking 20th time in their history.
And De Gea played a key role in that title triumph, playing in 28 Premier League fixtures, and in 41 contests in all competitions overall, before concluding his memorable campaign by helping the Spain retain their European Under-21 Championship crown in Isreal earlier this month.
“For me he’s the best goalkeeper in the world,” was the view of Mexico international striker Hernandez.
“Last season he really benefited from being given the opportunity to play on a regular basis.
“He was first choice and any player in the world shows his true ability when he gets the chance to have a decent run of games in the side.
“David has really shown his quality. He’s doing very nicely, thank you.”
