Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea says he wants to be the best in the world.
De Gea has flourished at Old Trafford in recent years and wowed supporters around the world with his consistently exceptional performances between the sticks, which helped him to win the club’s Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award in both 2013/14 and 2014/15.
Speaking with United Review, he was asked whether it is his lifetime aim to be known as the world’s best.
“Well, yes, I guess that’s the ultimate aim,” De Gea says.
“I try to train and I try to play in games and to do the best I possibly can in order to attain that level and to be able to make it.”
“Of course, getting to be number one keeper in the world is a tough ask because there are loads of goalkeepers out there and some very good ones, too.”
“But I always try to give my very best to reach that standard.”
