Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea says that he is an avid supporter of our women’s team, in particular fellow shot-stopper Mary Earps.

Earps won the 2022 Euros with England’s Lionesses during the summer, and has carried that form into the current season, with Marc Skinner’s Reds flying high in second position in the WSL.

David says that he’s extremely happy for his fellow United keeper, and tries to watch the team, whenever possible.

“She won the Euro cup with England [and] she’s playing really, really well. I’m trying to watch as much as I can, the women’s team, I think they’re doing really well this season.”
