Former Chelsea striker calls for De Gea to be dropped

Ex- Chelsea forward, Tony Cascarino, has told Manchester United to drop David De Gea as their number one goalkeeper.

The calls come after the Spaniard put on a horrible performance in our last Premier League game against Everton.

The game ended 3-3, with the Toffees scoring in the last minute, but De Gea could have done better to prevent two of their goals from going in.

Following the poor showing, calls have intensified for him to drop off to the bench, and Cascarino seems to share the sentiments.

Speaking to talkSPORT recently, as he reacted to the Everton result, the 58 year old said, Tony Cascarino said: “David De Gea for the first goal has got to do better. Third goal, you’ve got a licence as a goalkeeper. Sometimes you can be reckless, you can come out and charge, you’ll get protected.

“De Gea took the option of actually being quite safe and just making the minimal amount of effort to spread his body and make it difficult. Look, Manchester United are going to be ruing that 3-3 draw.

“And De Gea, as much as we keep going back, you’re paid a hell of a lot of money at a big football club, you do not survive playing averagely. And De Gea has been average for 18 months.”

De Gea has had one of the worst save percentages this season. In fact, only Wolves’ Rui Patricio has a poorer percentage than De Gea.
