Some of David De Gea’s saves are so ridiculous that they inspire actual celebrations from his teammates.
MUTV have produced this extraordinary footage compiling all of David De Gea’s greatest saves since joining the club back in 2011. Broken down season by season, with multiple angles of each save, this video really gets more and more ridiculous as it goes on.
It’s easy to forget that Manchester United only creeped into the top four last season and that if it wasn’t for De Gea guarding the Red Devils’ net, they would have more than likely have continued to languish down in mid-table as they did under David Moyes.
It’s hard to really pick out a highlight in this clip as each save is genuinely more absurd than the next, but perhaps the moment that sums up De Gea’s talent can be seen from 4:27 in the video.
With United just one goal up at Old Trafford against Everton, the Spaniard pulled off a diving save in the last minute from a shot that was destined for the top corner. De Gea’s teammates reactions are then simply a glory to behold. Some players raise their arms in celebration as if they have just scored a last minute winner while others simply put their hands on their head in disbelief.
But whatever you’re doing, make the time to watch this video in full. David De Gea is literally the Lionel Messi of goalkeeping.
If you enjoyed the above, we’ve also included another spine tingling De Gea video below. Not so much a play by play, this one simply focuses on De Gea’s transformation at Old Trafford from his initially suspect early days to the monster that he is today.
