Former Manchester United captain blasts club over David De Gea situation


Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville says the club made a terrible mistake in not extending David De Gea's contract two seasons ago.

The Spain international is a confirmed target for Spanish giants Real Madrid and was dropped by coach Louis van Gaal for United's first two Premier League games of the season.

His future remains unclear although recent reports claim that he will stay at Old Trafford at least for one more season.

"This has been badly managed by Manchester United, make no mistake about that, to allow a player of his quality not to extend a couple of years ago," Neville is quoted as saying by The Independent.

"He had those couple of dodgy seasons at the start when he was a young, inexperienced goalkeeper adapting to a new country, but under David Moyes he showed real promise.

"The question has to be asked why wasn't [his contract] extended in that period? To allow his contract to get to this situation is poor management. And now United are paying for it."
