Peter Schmeichel praises David De Gea before 400th Man Utd appearance


De Gea is set to play his 400th match for the Reds on Monday night and that significant milestone will arrive just days after he overtook the Great Dane on our all-time appearances chart.

In an interview for Monday’s official matchday programme, Schmeichel speaks passionately about De Gea’s career so far and what he can still achieve going forward. 

“There have been trophies over the last nine years and David will want more of those before he’s done, Peter explains in United Review, which is available to order online.

“He’d far rather pick up a few more winners’ medals than Player of the Year trophies, I’m certain. 

“Nine years at Manchester United is a long time and reaching 400 appearances for the club is a huge landmark which very few players have managed to do, but David’s got a long way still to go. He’s a young lad. He could play on here for another 10 years. It’s been great to watch his development here and it’ll be very exciting to see him use those experiences to play a big part in United’s future.”
