Viral Video Alert: Man Utd Fan Insane 20-Minute Fail Compilation of David de Gea Leaves Football Fans in Shock!
An avid Manchester United fan has compiled a 20-minute video showcasing the errors of their current goalkeeper, David de Gea, who has been facing criticism.
Although De Gea has had some remarkable seasons in his 12-year stint at Old Trafford, frequently rescuing Man Utd, a rising group of fans opine that it's time for the team to acquire a high-caliber goalkeeper.
On Thursday night, De Gea played a partial role in Manchester United's exit from the Europa League, which was caused by Sevilla.
In the quarter-final second leg, Sevilla took a 1-0 lead in the eighth minute due to a subpar pass played by the 32-year-old to Harry Maguire, who also didn't cover himself in glory on the edge of his own box.
Youssef En-Nesyri scored the winning goal of the tie after De Gea failed to control the ball outside the box, resulting in Sevilla's third and final goal of the night. De Gea was at fault for this goal.
Following Man Utd's embarrassing Europa League exit, Manager Erik ten Hag came to the defense of his goalkeeper and stated to reporters that "He's a very capable goalkeeper as he has the most clean sheets in the Premier League."
Although De Gea's current contract worth £375,000-per-week is set to expire this summer, it is anticipated that Man Utd will offer him a new deal. However, the terms of the new contract are expected to be significantly reduced.
Despite this, the aforementioned compilation video seems to be causing even more United fans to question whether offering De Gea a new contract is the correct decision.
On April 6, United fan @DevilTalkMUFC took on the challenge of creating a 20-minute compilation of De Gea's mistakes.
The video was shared on Twitter and became viral soon after.

David de Gea - The Never-Ending Nightmare
Let’s check out some of the reaction:
“Saddest thing is it wasn’t hard to find the videos,” @DevilTalkMUFC added. “None for Spain either this is ALL Man United clips.”
Does De Gea deserve more respect?
It’s pretty damning that United fans are creating/sharing videos of De Gea’s mistakes.
The club’s longest-serving player, De Gea has won the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award on four occasions, and Manchester United Players’ Player of the Year award the same number of times.
