De Gea GK’s ‘fatal mistake’…Ten Haag “That’s part of football”, Ferdinand “Is he the right player for Manchester United?”

“Mistakes are part of football. Football is a team sport, so everyone has to take responsibility.”

On the 7th (local time), in the 2022-2023 English Premier League expedition against West Ham United, goalkeeper David de Gea’s fatal mistake allowed Saeed Benrama to score the winning goal in the 27th minute of the first half, and Manchester United lost 0-1.

According to BBC Sport, Manchester United manager Eric ten Haag said after the game: “During the season, De Gea was the player with the most clean sheets, and we did it as a team. Mistakes can happen and that’s football, but everyone has to take responsibility.”

However, looking at his mid-30s, De Gea’s contract with Manchester United expires after this season, so it seems that this fatal mistake will not help the negotiations for a new contract. He has made this mistake four times this season, putting cold water on the team’s upward trend.

In particular, this match had a big shockwave because it took place in a situation where Liverpool, who ranked 5th, was looking for the 4th place, which is the right to participate in the UEFA Champions League next season.

With the loss that day, Manchester United kept 4th place with 19 wins, 6 draws, 9 losses and 63 points. Manchester United have four games and Liverpool have three games to play, so we don’t know what will happen.

De Gea is a veteran goalkeeper of Manchester United who joined Manchester United from Atletico Madrid in 2011 at the age of 20 and played more than 500 matches. He won Manchester United’s Player of the Year four times and lifted numerous Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League trophies.

He has kept 15 clean sheets this season, and manager Ten Haag points out that he is in contention for the Premier League Golden Glove. That there are more than two goalkeepers than any other goalkeeper.

Regarding this, ex-Manchester United centre-back Rio Ferdinand said: “On the shot-stopping side, De Gea made a mistake today, but that’s not what I’m asking him about. Is he a good enough footballer to play for Manchester United?” he asked.스포츠토토

“The only person who can answer that is Erik ten Haag, and we will find out at the end of this season,” he said.

Former goalscorer Peter Crouch pointed out, “De Gea conceded a goal because of his mistake, but it’s strange because he has kept the most clean sheets in the league.” What will be the fate of De Gea after this season?
