Manchester United Manager Erik ten Hag has expressed his full confidence in goalkeeper David de Gea following his costly error during their match against West Ham United in the Premier League on Sunday.
Despite de Gea's blunder leading to a 1-0 defeat for United, ten Hag praised the Spaniard for his impressive clean sheet record, which he claimed was instrumental in their current league position.
Ten Hag also revealed that he hoped de Gea would extend his contract, which is set to expire this summer.
The manager emphasized that the team's focus is on themselves and not on their rivals, Liverpool, who are currently hot on their heels in the Premier League standings.
Despite their recent loss, Manchester United remain fourth and one point ahead of Liverpool, who have played an extra game.
Ten Hag believes that the team still has everything in their hands, and they need to win three of their four remaining games to secure their position in the league.
The manager called on the team to show character, and resilience, and bounce back from their recent defeat.
