Manchester United goalie De Gea has said he aims to play 400 games more after breaking Peter Schmeichel’s record of most appearances made by a foreign player.

Speaking after breaking Peter Schmeichel’s, David De Gea told the club’s official website: “Sorry to Schmeichel.

“It’s great. That means I’ve been here a long time and I’ve been playing really, really well to the top level so I’m really, really proud. I’m happy to play for this club for that many games. Hopefully I have another 400 games coming! So I’m really really happy.

“Of course we are very confident now but we haven’t done anything yet. We have some important games coming now so we need to be very, very focused and keep the level that we showed today and in the last four games.

“We’re in a good mood, a good way, so yes, we keep looking forward to the next game.”

Meanwhile, De Gea grabbed his 11th clean sheet in the Premier League this season in our victory over Aston Villa.

The Spaniard is now only behind Alex Stepney in the overall all-time appearances for a goalkeeper at United. He’ll aim to reach the 400-appearance mark against Southampton on Monday.
