Juan Mata: David De Gea is special


Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata was full of praise for goalkeeper David De Gea, saying he is special.

The 24-year-old is expected to leave Old Trafford during the summer transfer window with new Real Madrid coach Rafa Benitez ready to make a move.

"He has a lot of talents as a goalkeeper but his calmness in any situation is what makes him special," Mata told the club's official website.

"For me he was the best during the season–I'm very happy for him that he won the two trophies [at the Player of the Year awards]–he's done it two years in a row now and it's well deserved."

Meanwhile, the Spaniard says he is already looking forward to next season.

"To just keep improving and giving my best to this great club and to try to reach new goals," he said.

"As an offensive player I want to score, assist and give 100 per cent for the team, and as a club I think we need to be fighting for the title because that’s what all the players and fans want."
