Mourinho: De Gea? He’s United’s Third Best Goalkeeper

Ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League final group game against CSKA Moscow in Russia, manager Jose Mourinho joked that the in-form David de Gea was Manchester United’s third best goalkeeper, behind Sergio Romero and Joel Pereira.

De Gea was in incredible form in United’s 3-1 Premier League win over Arsenal on Saturday, making 14 saves at the Emirates Stadium.

But Romero will start for United against CSKA Moscow on Tuesday and Mourinho said the Argentina international – not De Gea – was the world’s best.

Asked if he had worked with or come up against a better shot-stopper than De Gea, Mourinho said: “Yes. Romero.

“Because he plays [against CSKA] and my goalkeeper is always the best goalkeeper in the world. So now David is the third best.

“Romero is number one, Joel number two and David is the third best.”

However, Mourinho still lauded the form of De Gea, who continues to shine at Old Trafford.

Summing up the Spaniard’s season, the Portuguese tactician said: “Very good. Very, very good.

“All season very good.”

  • Jose is full of shit… De Gea is no where close to Van Der Sar

    • Mourinho is not talking about past goal keepers he is talking about the curent keepers in the team at the bench. But when it comes to all the goal keepers from the past and current then David De Gea is deffinitly the 3rd best. Shurmachiel or how do they spell his namre, that guy came 1st followed by Van Der Ser.

  • Thank God u said’ he joked’ so its just a joke, and a joke will remain a joke no matter what

  • Don’t forget his predecessors that’s why the coach said that

  • This is a way of gearing up Romero and peirera so jose knows what his talking about which thereby making De Gear to work bit more on his already in form keeping attitude !
