David de Gea: Manchester United FA Cup quest not enough

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United’s David de Gea has not been happy with how the season has played out so far, insisting an FA Cup final is not enough.

The Spaniard was recently crowned the club’s player of the year but clearly has issues with how the campaign has panned out and rightfully so.

United only have the FA Cup trophy to contend for after being best by Manchester City in the Premier League and getting knocked out of the Carabao Cup and Champions League disappointingly.

Jose Mourinho knows there’s plenty of pressure to deliver the title next season but has also rightfully acknowledged that this season is one that shows progress.

It will be a decent one should they get their hands on the FA Cup trophy but should they fail, it would be a little disappointing.

According to the Daily Mail, David said to Sky Sports: “It has not been quite enough this season, fair enough we are battling to hang on to second place but we have not managed to win our initial target which was to win the Premier League title and to give a good account of ourselves in the Champions League but we have also not managed to do that.

“Obviously, the FA Cup is very important and we are going all out to win that. But it is not quite enough – we are Manchester United and have to aim for bigger and better things.”

Although admitting unhappiness with the Red Devils’ adventures this season, De Gea doesn’t appear set to leave the club.

The goalkeeper has been busy praising the history of the club as well as what it means for him to consistently don the famous red shirt.

Mourinho also ruled out a move for David de Gea and so Manchester United fans could yet see him between the sticks for years to come.
