It has been reported that former Manchester United goalkeeper coach Eric Steele says there’s much more to come from David de Gea.

It was actually Steele who scouted and brought De Gea originally to United from Atletico Madrid.

“He’s got the potential to be a great like Peter Schmeichel and Edwin van der Sar,” Steele told United Review.

“The boy could be held in that regard because he’s only going to get better.

“He came to United at 19, so you’re looking now at a mature, physically developed goalkeeper. He’s got better, and he’s going to get even better.

“He’s 25 now. Schmeichel didn’t go to United until he was 28, so this boy – this man, now – has got so much more to come.”
