De Gea wants Spain's PM to offer public apology

De Gea wants Spain's PM to offer public apology

Manchester United goalkeeper, David De Gea, has demanded a public apology from Spanish PM Pedro Sanchez over his comments in the wake of an unfounded sex abuse scandal.

The Manchester United player was not charged, however Sanchez, who was then leader of the opposition, publicly stated that he was "uneasy" with De Gea as Spain's number one heading into the 2016 European Championship.

The 27-year-old is in great form as he picked up the Golden Glove award this season and should Spain pick up the World Cup this time around, there will be a lot more rock played at Old Trafford next season and more players will be upset with the star keeper.

De Gea should be focussed on the World Cup as he looks to take Spain all the way to the final and win the trophy.

While appreciative of the personal apology, De Gea believes he should be given a public one. "It's easy to talk about others in this country".


"I always put my music on", he told Copa90. From the beginning I said that everything was a lie and some even said that I shouldn't be in the national team and, in the end, it was shown to be a lie. Come what may, I'll be the same.

"I think that for a time I wasn't treated as I should have been", he said.

The allegations were later found to be false and De Gea and Atletic Bilbao midfielder Iker Muniain, the other player implicated in the scandal - were not called to provide evidence by the judge in the case. But obviously, I have family and people that are close to you who are more affected than me. "I just want to be 100 percent focused on the World Cup".

"It's a World Cup, you always go with the same desire", De Gea said.

Spain open their World Cup campaign against neighbours Portugal in a repeat of the meeting at the 2010 World Cup in which a David Villa goal was enough to send his side through to the quarter-finals.
