Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has vowed to put the ‘tough times’ behind him following a summer of uncertainty around his Old Trafford future.
The Spain international’s proposed Deadline Day move to Real Madrid stalled at the last minute and the United number one has since signed a new four-year contract with the Red Devils, keeping him at Old Trafford until 2019.
De Gea has been ever-present for Louis van Gaal’s side since and says he is now focused on his future at United.
“I am a guy who likes to put the bad things and difficult times behind me,” he told Canal Plus.
“I had a lot of tough times and I know what it is. We must move forward, working equally and always strong.
“It’s a learning process that gives football hard moments but that make you mature and grow. These are things that you learn in the world of football. You have to keep working and try to improve in every training session.”
The United number one is currently on international duty with Spain and is expected to start against Luxembourg tonight, with Vicente del Bosque’s side needing a draw to seal Euro 2016 qualification.
The Red Devils return to action on Saturday October 17 when they face Everton at Goodison Park.
