De Gea: We showed we are United
Watch what David had to say after his award-winning performance against PSG on Tuesday night...
That was pretty special... “Yeah we had, all of us, good memories of this stadium from the last time we played here. It was amazing but today we showed again we are Manchester United. We can beat beat big teams like PSG, playing well and creating good chances. I’m really proud and really happy for all the players, for the team and for the club, for everyone.” It was a team effort, but I must pick out Tuanzebe... “Yea, to be honest, he [Tuanzebe] has been unbelievable today against some of the best players in the world: Neymar and Mbappe. So, he did really well; I’m really happy for him. He’s had difficult moments with the injuries, so he now he showed today that he is capable of playing big games.” A few great saves from you - do you have a favourite? “All of them. I always say that any save is important to help the team. I’m here to help and I played a good game today, like the whole team. We fight for the three points and we get it.” Was it a deserved win in the end? “We have a big chance to score the second goal and to win the game. We did it and they have, of course, some good chances. I’m very proud of the team. It’s been great to win again on this pitch.” Marcus scored the winner and it had to be him, didn't it? “It was another great goal from him. I’m happy for him; he [Rashford] deserved his goal. The whole team deserved the three points today.” How big could this win be for the group? “It’s massive. You play away the first game against PSG and you know they’re a difficult, top team. To get the three points today for us is massive. It gives us confidence to keep going and now we have another big game on Saturday. We need to keep going and winning games.” Last time we celebrated with the fans, so it's a shame we can't tonight... “It would be amazing to have them [the fans] here today, I’m sure they were enjoying that at home. I’m really happy for them.” For confidence, a result like this must make you think we can win any game... “I said before. That’s why we are Manchester United. We need to know we can beat any team. Now we have a difficult schedule and we have big games coming. We need to be ready for everything.”
