David De Gea praises David Moyes and the Manchester United faithful

Manchester United’s number one goalkeeper David De Gea has come out with high praise for new manager David Moyes and praised those fans that pay money every week to watch the Premier League Champions play.

David De Gea has enjoyed some good form this season and has no doubt made himself United’s number one on the squad sheet every-week after, what was a slightly rocky start to his Manchester United career after signing from Atletico Madrid back in 2011.

Recently, United manager David Moyes has praised his Spanish goalkeeper, however, the 23-year-old still insists that he wants to improve through-out his Manchester United career.

Speaking with Inside United, Manchester United’s Official Magazine, David De Gea said:

“It’s very important that the manager values your work and now it’s important to continue to play well and help the team

“I’m very happy the manager praised me but, for me, the journey doesn’t stop now – I want to keep earning praise and playing well for this team.

“I play for my team-mates and I play for my manager but I also play for the fans.

“I’m very happy with it (his performances this season). I feel like this is a particularly good moment in my career right now and I hope to continue in the same vein for some time to come.

“I feel like I’m always improving and I want to make sure that continues as well.”

David De Gea also went on to mention how the clubs fans means alot to him, especially when paying money and signing his name week-in-week-out.

He added:

“When you win over a club’s fans, it’s a very proud moment

“These are the people who pay money to come to watch you every week.

“You owe it to them to play well and give your best, so it makes me extremely happy to hear the fans singing my name.”

Manchester United are back in action on Sunday afternoon, with an away fixture to Cardiff City.
