De Gea thinks he is untouchable - Dimitar Berbatov

De Gea thinks he is untouchable - Dimitar Berbatov

Former Manchester man Dimitar Berbatov thinks his former teammate David De Gea is overconfident of his place at Manchester which is probably the cause of his drop in form.

David De Gea has been criticized many times his season for his mistakes during games. The Spanish international is no more the fans favorite at the club as they can't stand him gifting opponents' goals anymore.

Dimitar Berbatov is also a bit worried about the man who used to be one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League as his drop in form continues. However, the former United man thinks, De Gea's problems might be due to the fact that he thinks he is untouchable at the club and therefore being overconfident as he has no one challenging him for the No. 1 spot.

'With De Gea latest show on Sunday against, Berbatov now believes is time United bring back Dean Henderson from Sheffield United to provide some serious competition for De Gea,' Berbatov told Betfair

'For the second goal on Sunday, David de Gea should have done better, and he will know that. In my opinion, he is still one of the best goalkeepers in the world, regardless of the mistakes he has made this season. Every goalkeeper, even the greats of the past have all made mistakes throughout the years.'

'It's David's job to evaluate his performance and I'm sure he knows that he's not doing well and he can do much, much better. I don't know what people want though sometimes, he can come out and say 'yes, I made a mistake,' but it's obvious that has happened, he can see it and I'm sure on the way home after the game he was regretting it, every footballer rewinds mistakes in their heads after a game.'

'If United decide to bring back Dean Henderson from Sheffield United, I think that will do De Gea good; players need that competition and Henderson is doing tremendously well in my opinion.'

'Henderson is 23, which for a goalkeeper is still very young, he's got a lot of football ahead of him, but you can see that he is hungry to play and I think the competition he could bring to De Gea could be the difference maker, or breaker.'

'Sometimes when you feel to secure in your position that is the moment when you start making mistakes. It's the same with outfield players, when you think you are untouchable you make more mistakes because you are over-confident.'

'When you are number one, you know you are number one. When you are number two, you know you are number two, like in the case of Sergio Romero, he's an excellent goalkeeper and I remember him well from when I played with him at Monaco, I know what he can do and when he has had the chance to play for United he has done a great job.'
