De Gea answers fans' questions

Your girlfriend is a singer, but how's your singing voice?
I'm all about stopping shots, not singing! I must admit, I've not got a great voice. She does her thing well and I do mine - it's better if we stick to what we're good at.

What would you be if you were not a footballer?
All I can remember is wanting to be a footballer. It's all I've ever wanted to do and it's hard for me to even consider doing anything else. I guess if football wasn't an option I would have concentrated a bit harder at school and put my mind to my studies. I probably would have gone to university and tried to attain a degree related to sport. I also enjoyed history at school, learning about important dates and events.

Have you had a chance to communicate much with Shinji Kagawa and what do you think of him as a player?
You'd be surprised! Even though he doesn't speak Spanish and I don't speak Japanese we've still managed to communicate a little bit. He's a really nice guy and, like me, he's having classes and learning English. So we can communicate a little bit. Of course, it's no secret what a good player he is on the pitch. It's a shame he's been out injured recently because he was a very important member of the team at the beginning of the season.
