“A goalkeeper should start the play and generate the first superiority,” says Luis Enrique on David de Gea
Luis Enrique opens up on why Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea lost the place as Spain’s number one keeper.
Spain national football team manager Luis Enrique opens up on why Manchester United’s goalkeeper David de Gea has lost the place as the number-one choice keeper (of Spain). Luis Enrique doesn’t feel that David de Gea is the man he wants in the current Spain football squad as he finds out there’s something missing out from him.
“A goalkeeper should start the play and generate the first superiority, they must dominate the aerial play. I need a goalkeeper that transmits peace and calmness to me, that doesn’t mean they won’t make mistakes, errors are part of football,” says Luis Enrique as quoted by Marca (reported by strettynews.com) on Sunday, 5th June.
Luis Enrique’s first choice goalkeeper is Unai Simon. Unai started every game of Euro 2020 with Spain as Luis Enrique loves him and his style of play. David de Gea won the Manchester United Players’ Player of the Year’ award for his exceptional season with the Premier League side. Despite his exceptional season, Luis Enrique is still expected to leave de Gea on bench as Simon is his first choice.
