Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea believes that combining Manchester United’s winning mentality with that of new manager Jose Mourinho can enable the Reds to “build a great team.” as reported on the club’s website.
Upon the confirmation of Jose Mourinho as the club’s new boss at the end of last month, De Gea who has emerged as United’s Player of the Year for the last three seasons, has expressed his delight at the appointment.
“To speak of Jose Mourinho is to talk about a winning coach and that is United’s philosophy and mine,” De Gea is quoted as saying in Spanish newspaper Marca. “With that idea in mind, I’m certain we can build a great team. I welcome him.
“When you speak of United, nothing is enough if you don’t win every title,” he continued. “Not qualifying for the Champions League was a big blow but we have won the FA Cup after 12 years, and after three years without lifting a trophy.
“We must value this, because it’s a very important trophy for the fans. This FA Cup should be the launch pad for the club to win important titles.”
De Gea penned a new four-year deal with the Reds last September and he’s excited by what potentially lies ahead.
“I have three further years left on my contract with United and I’m enthusiastic to win titles here,” he declared.
