Manchester United star David de Gea has been voted as the winner of the BBC Match of the Day ‘save of the season’ award to wrap up his fine performances for the season.
The Spanish international was earlier named among the PFA’s squad of the season and he is also in line to add a FA Cup trophy to his collections by the end of the season should they win over Chelsea’s challenge in the Cup final later this month.
De Gea, as always, has been phenomenal at the back for the Red Devils this season as his fine saves ensured the team finish in the second position on the league table.
Though Mourinho’s men failed to mount any pressure on City for the League trophy this season, the Old Trafford outfits were inspired by De Gea’s quality showings to get to the quarter-final round of the Uefa Champions League where they eventually crashed out after a 2-1 aggregate loss to La Liga side Sevilla.
The BBC Match of the Day ‘save of the season’ award was given to the 27-year-old netminder due to his double-save against Arsenal at Emirates Stadium in the season’s first fixture between both clubs. The match ended in a 1-0 victory for the Manchester Club.
With his consistent and impressive performances for the team, José Mourinho is doing all he could to retain his service beyond the season amid interest from Real Madrid.
