De Gea: Mistakes part of the game

Published Add your comment

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has no intention of letting his mistakes bother him.

The Spain Under-21 star has endured a troubled start to his United career following an £18million summer move from Atletico Madrid, and has been criticised after his failure to collect Morten Gamst Pedersen's corner led to a surprise winner for Blackburn at Old Traffordon New Year's Eve.

But De Gea insists it is part of a goalkeeper's lot to receive criticism when any kind of mistake is made, and told Inside United: "Let's face it, all keepers make mistakes once in a while and none of us like it when we do."
