Pedro Rodriguez claims David de Gea’s saga will not establish Spain’s Euro 2016 campaign

Pedro Rodriguez insists Spani’s Euro 2016 campaign will not be established by the on-going David de Gea saga.

Eldiario reported a witness testimony that claimed de Gea organised a party at which women were forced to have sex with two footballers, which he strongly denied any participation.

The winger explained the team are satisfied with the goalkeeper’s explanation that everything he has been accused of is false.

De Gea was already set to make the starting XI for Spain’s tournament opener and Pedro can’t see reports changing Del Bosque’s mind

“I don’t think it will affect us because we have been training well, De Gea included.”He’s calm because he’s a great professional and we want to support him,” he said.

“I don’t think it will affect Del Bosque’s decision, he has to think about what’s best for the team.”

De Gea quickly denied allegations of sexual abuse in the Torbe scandal, which also saw Isco and Iker Muniain implicated. It hasn’t come at an ideal time with the scandal breaking just days before La Roja’s Euro 2016 opener against Czech Republic.

He’s arguably been United’s best player this season and was one of the reasons why the club had a chance of finishing inside of the Premier League’s top four despite such a disappointing campaign.

Del Bosque has confirmed he never had any intentions of sending De Gea home and it’s good to see the rest of the players offering him their support. He will be looking to get his head down and try to take the starting spot from Iker Casillas after serving under him for many years.
