De Gea grateful for team support

first_imgGoalkeeper David De Gea admits his learning process at Manchester United is ongoing but says the support he receives from his team-mates makes things much easier. The Spain international had a shaky start to his career at Old Trafford having arrived from Atletico Madrid for £17.8million in the summer of 2011. The 22-year-old has since established himself as first choice for the Red Devils but he is still not taking anything for granted. Press Associationcenter_img “It’s more about all the things you learn rather than one individual thing,” he told “It’s an ongoing process as well, especially when you come to a club from another country. The whole thing is a great experience. “At first, everything is new. The football, the culture and how people live…it’s about learning how things work at the club and getting to know your team-mates. “The whole package has been a lesson for me. The support I have had from everyone at the club has been fantastic. “First of all you have to have the belief in yourself and self-confidence, but that is enhanced once your team-mates and people within the club show their confidence in you and their support. “It’s a top dressing room and a great one to join. “Everyone in the squad helps you a lot and the settling-in process is made a lot easier by the fact that there is such a warm atmosphere here.” last_img
