David De Gea, the goalkeeper for Manchester United, claimed that he no longer needed to prove anything to anyone because he had already accomplished what he was capable of at Old Trafford.
De Gea, who is eager to use his own playing style, made this statement in response to a query about his capacity to play alongside Erik ten Hag from the back.
Following his decision to play a long ball during their 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace in Melbourne earlier this week, De Gea has once again found himself on the receiving end of a volley from the new Dutch boss.
The goalie, who is currently among the Old Trafford players with the longest tenure, has also received criticism for his distribution.
The number one player in Spain at age 31 is unwavering in his belief that he can adapt to Ten Hag’s style.
De Gea responded when asked by reporters if he was comfortable playing out from the back: “Yeah. Of course, a solid structure is necessary if you intend to play from the back.
“I believe I’ve already shown. I don’t need to brag to anyone, as you can see if you watch my national team games or the early games we played with Sir Alex.
“I have been playing for a long time. I’ll make an effort.
As always, I’m going to maintain my composure and attempt to convey it to the team while playing from the back.
