In a punchy interview, De Gea, who has established himself as the first name on David Moyes’ team sheet, talked about his sporting inspirations, the secret of Spain’s footballing success and his admiration for time-defying team mate, Ryan Giggs.
United’s shot-stopper-in-chief then took-up the gauntlet to become the second Reds star to try the bwin Corner Challenge and proceeded to demonstrate that if he wasn’t so skilled between the posts, he could well carve out a future as a set-piece specialist. Coming hot on the heels of team mate Anderson, who posted a score of 65 in his attempt at the corner-kick based game, De Gea was desperate to claim the bragging rights.
The challenge will continue throughout the season and will include players from bwin's Play for Real partners. To see how they do, keep an eye on the bwin YouTube channel. For all the latest betting tips and news follow @bwin on Twitter or Facebook.
