KFC brutally trolled Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea throughout the FIFA World Cup conflict between Spain and Germany.
De Gea has been overlooked of the Spanish facet for the 2022 FIFA World Cup by Luis Enrique. Unai Simon has emerged as the brand new No. 1 for la Roja beneath Enrique.
Quick meals group KFC took the chance to have a go on the Manchester United shot-stopper. They seemingly took a dig at De Gea’s incapacity to play as a sweeper keeper, an attribute that’s important in Enrique’s system for Spain.
KFC wrote on social media:
“I utterly forgot De Gea didn’t go to the World Cup till I noticed the keeper come off his line simply then.”
While De Gea’s shot-stopping ability has never been under doubt, his lack of distribution skill has often been the point of discussion.
The consensus belief is that it is for that reason that the former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper has failed to earn Enrique’s trust.
Simon, meanwhile, has excelled in De Gea’s absence. He was solid in goal for the clash against Germany and pulled out important saves on multiple occasions.
Howevr, the Athletic Bilbao custodian could hardly do anything when Niklas Fullkrug slammed home the equalizer for the Germans in the 83rd minute. This was after Alvaro Morata gave La Roja the lead in the 62nd minute of the game.
Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea was recently sent a surprise retirement message by Spanish FA
If not getting called up was not miserable enough for David De Gea, things got worse for him. The Spanish FA recently sent him a message wishing good luck for his career post-retirement from the national side.
The Manchester United goalkeeper was left surprised as he didn’t even announce his retirement from the national team.
Spanish journalist Jose Alvarez told El Chirnguito that Luis Rubiales, president of RSFF, sent the goalkeeper a message, congratulating him on his retirement. He said (via Sports Witness):
“A couple of days later, David receives a message from Rubiales, president of the Federation, who says: ‘David, I’m glad that you’ve lastly made the choice you may have been enthusiastic about. I’ve already been advised that you’re leaving the nationwide crew.'”
De Gea tried to make clear to Rubiales that he by no means introduced his retirement from the Spanish facet and would not intend to take action within the close to future. Such an undesirable message although, might put extra stress on the goalkeeper.
