Mourinho hails “world-class” De Gea.



Jose Mourinho has heaped praise on David de Gea after his brilliant performance in Manchester United’s win over Young Boys in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

The Spaniard produced a great save while the game was 0-0 before Marouane Fellaini fired home to seal a spot in the last 16 of Europe’s elite competition.

However, the Red Devils boss is convinced the “world-class” shotstopper, who joined from Atletico Madrid in 2011, will sign a new contract and stay at Old Trafford.

"He's a world-class player," Mourinho said in the post-match news conference. "The best goalkeeper in the world and – if our ambitions are to be a big club, a winning club – you need the best goalkeeper in the world and also some other players who are the best in the world.

"In this case we have the best goalkeeper, and I know he wants to stay, I know his agent is happy to do what the player wants and I also know the board wants him to stay and they are working on that.

"Hopefully sooner or later they arrive into good conclusions."
