Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea is demanding a public apology from Spanish prime minister Pedro Sanchez.
De Gea remains angry with Sanchez over public accusations made by the politician two years ago when he was caught up in false sexual assault claims.
“I accepted his apologies politely. What happens is that what he said on the day was in public and that’s why I think that the apologies should also be in public,” said De Gea.
“It is also true that most public figures who disrespected me have not even apologised in private. It is easy to talk about others in this country.”
He also said: “From the beginning I gave a press conference saying that everything was a lie and people were following, some saying that I should not be in the National Team. In the end things were proved and it was seen that everything was a lie and it has since calmed down.”
