Rooney: David De Gea is the best goalkeeper in the world.

David de Gea has been spectacular this season and after strings of saves during key moments in Manchester United's games, Wayne Rooney reckons De Gea is the best goal keeper in the world.

After numerous saves, David de Gea helped Louis van Gaal’s side keep a clean sheet against arch rivals Liverpool on Sunday as the Red Devils swept aside Brendan Rodgers’ team.

The Spaniard has been really impressive and a number of coaches, pundits and ex-players have praised the 24-year-old including Wayne Rooney who was quoted by the Daily Mail saying: ‘He’s the best keeper in the world. He has shown great form and some of his saves are incredible.

‘Edwin van der Sar had the best years of his career when he was with us in his late 30s so David has a great future ahead of him. If he keeps working hard the way he is, he will have many years at the top.’

‘To play in goal for United at 20 is difficult, especially trying to replace Van der Sar, who was a fantastic keeper.

‘We knew it might take time with David and it did. The first six months, probably a year, it was hard but he worked hard on his game and it shows.’
