De Gea: Man Utd players convinced of special season

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea says the locker room is convinced of a big season ahead.

De Gea was speaking after Wayne Rooney’s testimonial last night.

He told MUTV: “We feel that [it could be a special campaign]. We feel really strong with the new manager and new players, they’re really top players and I think this is going to be a great season.

“Of course, it’s good to be fit as soon as possible because on Sunday we have an important game against Leicester.”

“They’ll be tough opponents for sure, they have a strong team and we know how they play. They play really well; we’ll need to be fit and play really good football to beat them.”
