David De Gea demands public apology from Spanish Prime Minister

13 June 2018

During Spain's build-up to Euro 2016, David De Gea and Iker Muniain were implicated in a sex abuse scandal that they have since been cleared of, but haven't forgotten.

But the 27-year-old gave little away when asked about his future at La Furia Roja's training camp for the tournament in Russian Federation. "It is important to be focused and be 100%".

De Gea joined United from Atletico Madrid in 2011 and after a few unconvincing seasons has turned into one of the best goalkeepers in the world - leading to Real Madrid's interest.

The Spanish PM met the Spain team last week when he attempted to ease the tension by apologising in person to De Gea, according to an ESPNFC report.

De Gea is set to be Spain's World Cup No1 this summer. "Many people have been very unfair to me".

"There are many people who do not deserve to do interviews for them".

"There are things that did a lot of damage and had an affect".

"Many people criticised me, knowing that what they said wasn't correct, but then they have not had the courage to rectify it". I knew I had not done anything, that's why I was calm. 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.

And while De Gea himself made an error which cost his side a victory against the Swiss, he remains hopeful that Spain will make a much stronger case for themselves in Russian Federation this summer.

It had been said they could look to strike a deal before the World Cup begins in Russian Federation. "It's the same feeling of doing things well and helping the team, of becoming strong". The side did win the trophy in 2010 and if De Gea plays to his best ability, the Spanish side will be tough to score against.
