David De Gea turns on his ‘botched’ Man Utd teammates and tells uncommitted players to leave this summer transfer window

DAVID DE GEA has blasted Manchester United’s underachieving stars and told anyone who doesn’t want to fight for their place to leave.

The Red Devils lost 1-0 at Crystal Palace on the final day of the season to close their miserable campaign.

New boss Erik ten Hag was in attendance at Selhurst Park as the club recorded their lowest points tally in the Premier League era.

Luckily for United, they were spared the embarrassment of playing in next season’s Conference League as West Ham’s defeat at Brighton assured them they would be in the Europa League.

But De Gea didn’t throw a punch afterward as he gave his verdict on the squad as he issued a warning to those he felt lacked commitment in the dressing room.

The Spanish goalkeeper told MUTV: “It’s the same feeling.

“The level we’ve shown over the last three or four months is not enough to win a Premier League game, we’ve been sloppy, we’ve lost easy balls around our box, it’s impossible to win the matches.

“I just want to be positive, forget about this season.

“The new director [Erik ten Hag] was in the stands, so that’s a good signal.

“I hope things will be better for next season – it’s already in the past. We all know it’s been a bad season, for everyone.


A host of players look set to go over the summer as Ten Hag prepares to rebuild the Fallen Giants.

And De Gea added: “People who don’t want to stay leave.

“And people who really want to stay at the club, who want to fight for the club, let’s rest well this summer, prepare mentally and physically and be ready to fight again next season.”
