You couldn't blame David de Gea for regretting United contract renewal

David de Gea looked absolutely despondent after Manchester United’s loss to Newcastle.

It is painful enough trying to watch United right now, whether you be in the stands or watching on television. Imagine being on the pitch with the players.

Once Newcastle scored their opening goal it was all over. There was no way United were scoring twice.


De Gea spoke after the game to express his sadness at United’s current situation.

He was quoted via BBC: “The game isn’t acceptable. The whole season isn’t acceptable for us.”

“We didn’t create any proper chances. We have a lot to improve. I don’t know what to say. We need to step up.

“We have injuries but it’s not an excuse. We are Manchester United, we need to train hard to keep fighting and to get back to winning games.”

Deserves better

De Gea is right with everything he says and he deserves better.

He was fighting until the last, charging up to try and help the team score at the end, only for the free-kick to predictably sail over everybody.

The Spaniard committed his future to United last month, signing a long term contract at Old Trafford which runs until 2024.

It had been due to expire next summer, and his renewal was a huge decision, the biggest of his career.

You genuinely could not blame him if he regretted that decision right now.

United are going backwards at an alarming rate, and De Gea did not re-sign for this.

We are lucky to have him at United, and he will be key to helping the team get back on track.

If only there were a few more world class players like him in the team.
