Erik ten Hag makes David de Gea claim following Manchester United horror display

Erik ten Hag believes David de Gea can develop into a ball-playing goalkeeper for  Manchester United.

De Gea, 31, dropped a clanger for Josh Dasilva’s opening goal in United’s 4-0 thrashing of Brentford and did not anticipate Mathias Jensen pressing Christian Eriksen inside his own area when he passed the ball to the Dane.

Jensen stole the ball from Eriksen and slotted it past De Gea, whose ‘keeping was criticized in United’s opening weekend loss to Brighton.

De Gea is under contract with United until next year, with an option for an additional year.

Nottingham Forest do not have the option to purchase on-loan goalkeeper Dean Henderson, and it is possible that United will look for a new long-term goalkeeper next year.

“I am convinced that he can do it,” Ten Hag said of De Gea’s struggles to adapt. “And it’s obvious the second goal, okay (he was at fault). He showed already I have seen in training and in the first games that he can do that.”

United were expected to rebuild their squad this summer, but they only sold one player, Andreas Pereira, who last played for United in August 2020, and signed three new players.

In a squad devoid of proven quality in the first XI and on the bench, the lack of outgoings is almost as problematic as the lack of incomings.

“Yeah, but I don’t want to talk about it,” Ten Hag said of United’s dismal market. “I think about today’s performance, it was poor and I want to think about that and how we can sort it.”

When asked if he felt United’s form would put off targets, he added: “What I just said: I don’t think about that. I think the best to get out of this team and this moment is not my concern.”
