Javier Hernandez has come out and stated that there is no other goalkeeper in the world that is on a par with Manchester United team-mate David De Gea.
Back in February 2013, Hernandez said that “in a couple of years he will be the number one in the world” and since then David De Gea has helped Manchester United win the Barclays Premier League for the 13th time, been named in the PFA’s team of the year and won the European Under-21s Championship in Istael with Spain, keeping five clean sheet during the tournament.
Some year for the ‘dodgy keeper’ as many in the media labeled him when joining Manchester United.
Javier Hernandez has just finished his confederations cup campaign with Mexico, continuing his impressive goal scoring record with the International side with 35 goals in just 52 games.
Speaking with Inside United, Javier Hernandez said:
“For me he’s the best goalkeeper in the world.”
“We all talk about development and having to go down a certain career path and, of course, at his age many people would have been scared to give him the place he’s earned for himself.
“But I think that this season (2012-13) he’s really benefited from being given the opportunity to play on a regular basis.
“He was first choice between the sticks and I think that any player in the world shows his true ability when he gets the chance to have a decent run of games in the side, and David has really shown his quality.
“He was voted the best keeper in the Premier League, so I’d say he’s doing very nicely thank you.”
