It was award time at Manchester United last night and once again the Red Devils superb goal keeper David De Gea was the man receiving all the plaudits.
The Spain international was voted the Matt Busby Player of the Year for the fourth time in five seasons and also won the Players Player of the Year award.
However, his manager Jose Mourinho joked afterwards that United’s keeper, a native of sunny Madrid should actually have been given a third award.
“David deserves a third award, which is the worst player in training,” Mourinho said.
“He doesn’t save much in training. It’s cold and wet.”
Jokes aside, De Gea has once again shown why he is considered to be one of the best ‘keepers in the world this season after putting in a string of superb displays between the sticks for the Old Trafford club.
Speaking to the club’s in-house TV station MUTV the 27-year-old revealed how much of an honour it is for him to win the awards.
“It is difficult to say with words what Manchester United means for me, and for anyone it is amazing to play for this club, for the fans, for the history, it is amazing to play for this club.
“It was a bit hard at the beginning, but I believe in myself, I train hard. I want to say thanks for everyone, I didn’t expect to win just one and now I have four. Thanks for everything.”
