United's £18m starlet signing ‘shows Spanish potential'

Published Add your comment

Pepe Reina has given praise to David De Gea after the United signing’s performance against Liverpool on the weekend, with Reina insisting that the youngster is the future of Spanish football.

De Gea has had a shaky start to the season in the Barclays Premier League, and is slowly but surely establishing himself as a successor to Edwin van der Saar.

And after the keeper made multiple saves on Saturday to keep United in the game, Reina couldn’t help but praise his rival.


“He made a couple of fantastic saves – it shows the potential of Spanish goalkeepers and we are very proud there are now two Spanish lads playing for Liverpool and Manchester United,” Reina told the Guardian.

“He will have poor performances, like all of us, but he will have a lot of good ones as well. It is about finding consistency, but he will do that because he is a talent.”

United were able to come back from 1-0 down to draw with Liverpool at the weekend, but De Gea’s biggest test will come this Sunday when the Red Devils face cross-town rivals Manchester City.
