The THREE Words Man Utd Ace David De Gea Told Team-Mates At Half-Time After Chelsea Error

Juan Mata had put the Red Devils ahead against his former club with United looking relatively comfortable against Maurizio Sarri’s side.

But De Gea spilled Antonio Rudiger’s long-range effort allowing Marcos Alonso to tap in to pull Chelsea level.

That was on the stroke of a half-time and is one of a number of high-profile errors De Gea has made in recent weeks.

And De Gea reportedly apologized to his Manchester United team-mates at the break, telling the side: “I f* up.”

That’s according to The Sun who have spoken to an Old Trafford source after the draw.

A source told the paper: “He held his hands up at half-time and said sorry to the guys and said he had f***ed up.

“He could not believe he had done it and was absolutely gutted. He felt like he had let the whole team and Ole down.

“David was very down after the match and got dressed pretty quickly and quietly before leaving to go home.”

The draw to Chelsea all but ended United’s Champions League hopes with the Red Devils three points off fourth spot.

De Gea’s mistakes come as speculation grows surrounding his future.

Real Madrid and PSG are both linked to the Spanish goalkeeper, who has failed to agree a new long-term contract with United.

And Ian Wright believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should drop De Gea following his mistakes.

“If he (Solskjaer) really wants to stamp his mark and let people know he isn’t afraid to make decisions, he should take him out,” Wright said on BBC Radio 5 Live’s Monday Night Club.

“If the manager explains everything and tells him face to face why he’s leaving him out and giving him a break, that’s man-management – and that’s what Solskjaer has to do.

“He needs to go on holiday and sort his contract out. Sometimes you have to take someone out the firing line.

“He’s one of the best goalkeepers in the world and he just needs a break. There’s a lot going on and he’s under a lot of pressure.

“When you look at how United are playing at the moment, putting him in that situation is putting him under more pressure.

“He’s made three very uncharacteristic mistakes in a short period. To take him out for a very good understudy (Sergio Romero) isn’t a bad thing.”
