De Gea named Man Utd’s Player of the Year for third consecutive season

By Isoccer Staff

David De Gea has made club history tonight for Manchester United, as he’s the first player to ever be named as their Player of the Year for a third successive season.

De Gea has had another magnificent season between the sticks for United at Old Trafford, despite enduring a rather bizarre start to the campaign. The 25-year-old shot-stopper looked all-set to complete a move to Real Madrid last summer, so much so that he missed the first four Premier League games to get the deal over the line.

However, due to complications regarding the paperwork, the transfer didn’t happen, as the Spanish window slammed shut. Since coming back into the Red Devils side though, you wouldn’t have guessed that De Gea was earlier pining for a move to the Bernabeu, performing heroics yet again for Louis van Gaal’s troops.

He’s played a huge part in helping the Red Devils to the FA Cup final this season, saving a Romelu Lukaku penalty in the semi-finals, while the team can also thank him for his efforts in keeping them in the race for a top four finish, as we enter the final week or so of the campaign.

The Spaniard has continued to develop at a rapid pace at Old Trafford, establishing himself as one of the best goalkeepers in the world during that time. This term De Gea has kept 14 clean sheets and averaged 2.35 saves-per- game in 31 Premier League appearances, with an average claim success of 96%.
