David de Gea: Regular games have allowed him to show his true form

De Gea endured a difficult start to his career in England, with question marks raised to his reliability and ability to adapt to the physicality of life in the Premier League shortly after completing a move from Atletico Madrid in 2011.

The 22-year-old has shrugged off the criticism, though, and worked hard on improving his game.

His efforts were rewarded in 2012/13 as he played a prominent role in United's title success, earned a place in the Premier League team of the year and helped Spain to defend their European U21 Championship crown.

Hernandez is delighted to see De Gea getting the recognition he deserves, with it his opinion that the Red Devils now boast the most complete shot-stopper in the global game within their ranks.

The Mexican striker said: "For me, he's the best goalkeeper in the world.

"Last season he really benefited from being given the opportunity to play on a regular basis.

"He was first choice and any player in the world shows his true ability when he gets the chance to have a decent run of games in the side.

"David has really shown his quality. He's doing very nicely, thank you."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
