David de Gea’s save against Young Boys has received well-earned praise from English football legend turned pundit Gary Lineker.
At Old Trafford on Tuesday night, the Spanish no.1 dived to his right to save an effort that took a heavy deflection. The save kept United in the game with the scoreline currently 0-0 before Marouane Fellaini’s stoppage time winner saw the Reds qualify for the Champions League knockout stages.

He’s just amazing, isn’t he? De Gea may not have been his best this season, but it doesn’t help having a woeful defence. The ex-Atletico Madrid shot-stopper provided another moment of sheer class and we can only hope he renews his contract at the club.
De Gea’s contract expires at the end of the season and the thought of losing him anytime soon has us feeling distraught…
It’s not as if United have a good track record at recruiting.
