David De Gea interview, 16 September 2019: David, firstly, congratulations on signing your new Manchester United contract. How would you describe your emotions? Thank you very much. It’s difficult to describe with words how I feel now. I’m delighted and proud to be continuing in this team and to play for Manchester United. It’s a dream so I’m really, really happy. This contract will see you surpass a decade here. What do you think it is that makes this club so special? I think everything. The history of the club and the big players that have played for this club as well. And also the people who work for the club, they make it a better club… the kit men, the media guys, the physios, the chefs… everyone is a big part of the club and they make it even bigger. The fans as well around the world, not just the fans in England, the supporters outside of England, they are amazing and people like Sir Alex Ferguson as well – all that altogether makes this club a special club. As one of the players who captains the team at times do you feel you have a responsibility to help lead the squad given the time you’ve spent here and the experience you have? I think it’s a responsibility for everyone who puts the Manchester United shirt on. It’s true I’ve been here a long time and I’m always here to help everyone, especially the young lads, and to try to improve every day and try to do my best. Do you have a message for the fans who have supported you since you joined United? Yes, [I say] thank you. They have believed in me since I came here. I want to say a massive thanks to them, like I said before they make this club so special, so thank you very much to all of them.
