Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea, has warned the red devils, they’d have to improve ‘massively’ if they are to overcome midweek Champions League opponents Barcelona.
The red devils travel to the Camp Nou for the second leg of the UCL quarter-finals, and after watching United fail to register a shot on target at Old Trafford, and struggling to break down weekend opponents Westham. De Gea has demanded for focus, and a lot of improvement to ‘fight and win the game’ when the Champions League re-convenes at the Camp Nou.
“Of course its difficult, but if you want to be a top team you have to play big Champions League games, and the weekend after it’s the Premier League,” David De Gea said.
“So you have to be focused and ready for a difficult game again. I think we didn’t play well [against West Ham], we have to improve a lot and now we have a big challenge on Tuesday.
“We will try to fight and win the game. We can go with more confidence after the three points.
“It’s a big challenge, a special occasion, in Spain, against Barcelona, a Champions League night, so it’s going to be an amazing game.
“We’re happy with the win, but at the same time we have to improve a lot.”
David De Gea is on the crossroad with Manchester United over contract talks, with the Spaniard reportedly holding out for a massive salary to extend. However, United currently sit fifth on the Premier League table, and missing out on a Champions League spot for next season, could very well force the goal keeper to accept a deal elsewhere.
