Evans: De Gea's presence is growing

Published Add your comment

Jonny Evans believes it was a good thing David de Gea could barely speak any English when he arrived at Manchester United because it stopped him being exposed to all the harsh criticism he came in for.

De Gea is yet to dispel all the doubts about him. However, as each game passes, the 21-year-old shows unquestionable signs of quality.

On Thursday against Ajax he produced a reaction save which denied Siem de Jong a second half goal that could easily have condemned United to an embarrassing Europa League exit, and Evans admitted: "Probably it was a good thing David couldn't speak English at the start. It seemed like he was coming into training and nothing was affecting him."
