Man Utd Champions League winner Van der Sar makes De Gea contract call
Manchester United Champions League winner Edwin van der Sar says David de Gea should be handed a new contract.
Ajax chief exec Van der Sar is eager for supporters to look at the bigger picture when it comes to analysing the current first-choice in goal.
“David has done fantastically," the Dutchman told The Athletic. "He succeeded me in 2011, it's now 2022 — he's played 11 years and five times Player of the Season. Yes, he is a certain type of goalkeeper, and he is very good at certain points and a little bit less at other ones. Nobody is perfect.
“But he is still young. He has developed himself. It has also to do with outfield players, the way the coach want to play, the way they want to play the ball from defensive areas.
"On the goalkeeping side, I don't think there are any complaints regarding David."
