“I did well but this is a team sport”

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has expressed his thoughts on the Reds’ poor 2021-22 season.

The Old Trafford side ended their 2021-22 campaign with a 0-1 defeat to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Sunday. Coach Ralf Rangnick’s team could not find a breakthrough, while Wilfried Zaha scored to bring the home team victory.

However, this loss was not too expensive for Manchester United as Brighton & Hove Albion beat West Ham United 3-1 at home. The Hammers’ loss at Amex Stadium leaves the Reds still sixth on the scoreboard.

Manchester United have therefore secured a place in the UEFA Europa League for next season. However, it has been a poor season for the English giants, who have failed to impress in any of the leagues they have entered.

Reflecting on the campaign, De Gea explained he has worked hard to help the Red Devils. However, the Spain international is aware that football is a team sport and that his individual performances are not important. He told MUTV:

“Honestly, I worked hard over the summer to come here and show my level and help the team. I thought I did well but this is a team sport, so it doesn’t matter what I did.”

De Gea hopes that the arrival of Erik ten Hag will mark the beginning of a new era for the Old Trafford side. The Dutch strategist will replace Rangnick before the 2022-23 season.

The Red Devils will be hoping to return to their best under Erik ten Hag next season. Meanwhile, David de Gea’s performance is one of the few positives they can take from the 2021-22 campaign.

De Gea has made 46 appearances in all competitions for Manchester United. The goalkeeper kept 10 clean sheets in the process and played a key role in helping the club to 6th in the table.

After scoring impressively for the Red Devils this season, De Gea is expected to remain their number one goalkeeper choice next season. Ten Hag is likely to make major roster changes, but the Spaniard’s place in the team is likely to remain intact.

However, backup goalkeeper Dean Henderson is likely to leave Old Trafford this season as he looks for regular action. Newcastle United are said to be on track to finalize the signing of the 25-year-old.
