De Gea on Mourinho's appointment.



Manchester United shotstopper David de Gea has welcomed his new manager Jose Mourinho and is counting on the Portuguese to "build a great team" at Old Trafford.

The former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss signed a three-year contract with the Red Devils after Louis van Gaal's dismissal.

However, De Gea is looking forward to the glory days under Mourinho's reign at United.


"To speak of Jose Mourinho is to talk about a winning coach and that is United's philosophy and mine," the Spaniard told Marca.

"With that idea in mind, I'm certain we can build a great team. I welcome him."


De Gea added: "When you speak of United, nothing is enough if you don't win every title.

"Not qualifying to the Champions League was a big blow but we have won the FA Cup after 12 years, and after three years without lifting a trophy.

"We must value this, because it's a very important trophy for the fans. This FA Cup should be the launchpad for the club to win important titles."
