Manchester United coach Chris Woods has backed David de Gea to become one of the best goalkeepers in world football.
De Gea, who struggled to settle into life in the Premier League after his £18.9m move from Atletico Madrid, has gone on to become one of the most consistent shot stoppers in Europe.
Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez labelled De Gea 'the best in the world' on the back of the goalkeeper's outstanding display against Stoke City at the weekend.
And Woods, who followed David Moyes from Goodison Park to Old Trafford in the summer, also believes De Gea has 'everything needed' to come the world's best goalkeeper.
Goalkeeping coach Woods, speaking exclusively to United Review, said on De Gea's prospects of becoming one of the best custodians in world football: “David has got everything that you need to be the best and he has just got to keep doing what he is doing at the moment.
“It is about achieving a level of consistency, which he is now doing but I don’t want to tempt fate. He has everything needed to be up there with the best.”
Woods went on to praise De Gea's fellow senior goalkeepers for being 'first class' since his arrival at the club.
“From my point of view, they have taken the training on board, worked hard and I don’t think they have moaned!
"They have worked really hard and we are forming that coach/player relationship that you need."
