Timothy Fosu-Mensah: David de Gea is one of the best goalkeepers in the world

by Ben Topliss

Timothy Fosu-Mensah believes Manchester United teammate David de Gea is one of the best goalkeepers in the world.

De Gea has enjoyed a remarkable campaign, most recently pulling off a number of excellent saves against West Ham United in the FA Cup on Wednesday.

Man United took a 2-1 lead into the closing stages at Upton Park and they managed to secure the win thanks to De Gea’s heroics, although Cheikhou Kouyate did have a goal ruled out for the Hammers late on. Fosu-Mensah was full of praise for the Spaniard.

”David is one of the best goalkeepers in the world, maybe the best,” Fosu-Mensah said.

“It’s very good to have a goalkeeper like that in your team. He can save you points or save you in the cup. I saw Kouyate score and thought ‘No, no’ but then I saw the linesman’s flag so I was relieved it was offside.”

De Gea was close to moving to Real Madrid last summer but the deal collapsed due to late paperwork and United will be thankful that it did.

The keeper has been in sensational form and United’s campaign, a dismal one, would be far worse were it not for De Gea’s work in-between the sticks. Hopefully the club can keep hold of him in the summer.
