We're all behind De Gea - Rooney

Published 1 Comments

Wayne Rooney has leapt to the defence of under-fire Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea.

The former Atletico Madrid man has come in for heavy criticism in the past couple of weeks. De Gea was blamed by Gary Neville, among others, for a stoppage-time Tottenham equaliser a fortnight ago, prompting manager Sir Alex Ferguson to hit out at the opinions of "idiots".

But De Gea produced a series of excellent saves at Fulham on Saturday as United eked out a crucial 1-0 win, and Rooney said: "David has made some great saves over the last few weeks. I know he got a little bit of criticism after the Tottenham game but it wasn't the biggest mistake I've ever seen. We're all behind him. He's a great player for the future as well."
