Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has named the Red Devils’ shot-stopper, David De Gea as the best goalkeeper in the world.
Mourinho said this following his side’s 1-0 victory over Young Boys in the Champions League fixture played on Tuesday night.
De Gea’s contract at Old Trafford will expire at the end of the season but Mourinho wants United’s hierarchy to extend the Spaniard’s deal.
“I know he [De Gea] wants to stay,” Metro UK quoted Mourinho as saying.
“I know his agent is happy to do what the player wants and I also know that the board wants him to stay and they are working on that. So hopefully, sooner or later, they arrive at a good conclusion.
“Without David’s save, there would be no winning goal. He’s the best goalkeeper in the world and if our ambitions are to be a big club, a winning club you need the best goalkeeper in the world.
“You also need some other best players [in their position] in the world, in this case we only have the best goalkeeper in the world.”
Meanwhile, Mourinho’s side will tackle Southampton this weekend in the Premier League fixture.
