Bruno Fernandes thinks De Gea is not the only player to be responsible for Man United’s loss to West Ham.
De Gea’s mistake in the 27th minute caused Man United to receive defeat against West Ham. This is the fourth time that De Gea has made a mistake leading to a goal this season. However, Bruno Fernandes thinks that the fans cannot blame all of De Gea because the strikers of Man United did not take advantage of the opportunity.
“We couldn’t score a goal. We created a lot of chances but we weren’t sharp enough. We conceded an unlucky goal and lost the game. I need to revisit that situation, but we don’t need to focus on De Gea’s mistake.
He has saved us many times so there is no need to take the blame for this result. This has been one of our worst seasons in terms of scoring. We have players who can score goals but don’t capitalize on opportunities. We need to focus on ourselves, the destiny is still in our hands. We know what we need for the rest of the season. It’s been very difficult, we need to get our energy back.”
After a disastrous mistake against West Ham, Man United fans simultaneously demanded that De Gea be kicked out of Old Trafford. The Spaniard is out of contract at the end of the season. And with the current situation, it is unlikely that De Gea has decided to put pen to paper on a new contract with MU. In fact, De Gea is also not a goalkeeper suitable for the style of playing from the bottom that coach Ten Hag wants to build.
