Juan Mata: These have been difficult days for goalkeeper David De Gea


Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata says goalkeeper David De Gea is "calm and relaxed" ahead of Spain's European Championship qualifying match against Slovakia.

The 24-year-old was on the verge of joining Real Madrid but his proposed move to the Spanish giants collapsed after documents were sent late to the Spanish Football Federation headquarters.

He will return to the club after the international break but his future remains uncertain.

"[De Gea] seems the same as ever to me," Mata told reporters.

"He's calm, relaxed. He has a naturally calm personality. These have been difficult days but he is OK.

"It is good for him to be here with the national team too. I think his personality will help. He is always calm. Even in moments of maximum pressure or stress, he still plays well. His personality will help him on and off the pitch.

"David is professional and he always will be. His desire and professionalism will remain intact. Any team in the world would be better off with him in it.

"The fans always support the team, all of us, and they will support him.

"He is a friend and he is very professional. I wish him the best and I am sure he will be fine. He will manage the situation."
