De Gea: United want it all

David De Gea has insisted that Manchester United are capable of taking out the treble this season, despite Manchester City currently being favourites to win at least the Barclays Premier League title.

United and City were head to head in the table until they played one another in October; and after the Red Devils lost 6-1, City have moved five points clear of their cross-town rivals in pursuit of domestic glory.

But De Gea believes that the season is far from over yet, with United aiming to win accolades across England and Europe.

“United can still win it all. It’s still not decided that City will finish first,” he said.

The keeper, who signed for United in June to replace the retired Edwin Van der Sar, said he is settling well into life in England, and most importantly is learning a great deal more about football.

“What I have learned since the summer in England is more than most of my professional career in Spain,” he explained.

“It’s another world in all of the concepts. I didn’t play in the past weekend, but Ferguson told me it was just so I could rest. He’s an incredible coach and without doubt the best in the world.”

De Gea has had a mixed start to the season, making some brilliant saves, but the 6-1 loss to City was tough for the stopper to take. But as the season continues, De Gea seems more settled in his role at the club, and United are currently boasting four clean sheets in their last four matches.
