De Gea stands out

Manchester United have not been in the best of form of late.

The Red Devils are down in 7th place in the Premier League and have been struggling at both ends of the pitch.

Despite this David de Gea has been one of United’s most impressive players of late.

The Spaniard has only kept four clean sheets in 19 league outings this term, but he has still kept Manchester United in a lot of games with his superb shot-stopping.

This, in turn, would see the former Atletico Madrid man named as Manchester United’s Player of the Month for November and December.

Rangnick’s De Gea claim

Now, in a recent interview, Ralf Rangnick was asked to compare David de Gea and Manuel Neuer, the latter of which he worked with when at Schalke.

And, when doing so, Rangnick claimed De Gea and Neuer are in the top five, perhaps top three, goalkeepers in the world:

“Well, I think they are both definitely on the list of the top five goalkeepers in the world. Maybe even in the top three.

“They are both in a fantastic shape, physically and, as well as on the line, when it’s about controlling the box, David De Gea is probably one of the best, if not the best, in the world and we are very happy to have him.

“But, honestly, as a coach, I would prefer more of those games, for example, against Crystal Palace [a 1-0 victory at Old Trafford], where we don’t need him as much and, in order to achieve that, we just need to make sure we don’t have too many shots on goal.

“We had too many shots on our goal, also in the first half against Wolves, and the same was true at Newcastle or even at Norwich. But again, on the other hand, it’s good to have someone like David in goal – a fantastic professional, a fantastic player and it’s great to work with a player like him.”
