Manchester United star David de Gea has insisted finishing fourth is not good enough for his own personal targets as well as the clubs.
De Gea has been one of United’s most consistent players this season and is on course to win the club’s player of the year award once more.
A goalkeeper winning the award is not only testament to his talent but also to the team’s shortcomings in terms of their defending.
Mourinho has made the Red Devils’ defence more solid but they still look shaky when not protected and David has certainly rescued them plenty of times.
Perhaps it was the Portuguese manager’s ability that convinced the Real Madrid target to remain at Old Trafford when he first joined.
The goalkeeper doesn’t look as likely to leave as he once appeared and it seems that the former Chelsea boss had a lot to do with that.
