The 25-year-old former Partizan Belgrade man made his first start since joining Wanderers on January transfer deadline day and Freedman was impressed with his display alongside Jay Spearing at the heart of midfield.

"I thought he was excellent," he said. "It's difficult for him to adjust to the pace - that's his first game since November and it's a derby game.

"I do like to throw them in at the deep end and I thought he was thrown into the middle of the ocean because it's a huge game for him.

"He just got on with it. He looked as if he'd been here for a long time, he moved the ball well.

"We knew Blackburn would come with a game plan and play very deep and sit in there, so we had to be patient and I though Spearing and him looked a good partnership in there."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
