Spain World Cup 'keeper De Gea wants public apology from prime minister

Spain World Cup 'keeper De Gea wants public apology from prime minister

De Gea's focus was hampered during Spain's last appearance at a major worldwide tournament when his name became linked with a sexual assault case in the build-up to UEFA Euro 2016.

Sanchez though said he "didn't feel comfortable" with De Gea as Spain goalkeeper at Euro 2016. What happens is that what they said at the time was public and that's why I think that the apologies should also be in public.

David de Gea spoke out about his taste in music in the Old Trafford dressing room and added that he may get banned for the music he plays for the other players.

De Gea should be focussed on the World Cup as he looks to take Spain all the way to the final and win the trophy.

"I politely accepted his apology", De Gea told Diario AS as he prepared for Spain's 2018 World Cup campaign in Russian Federation. "It is easy to talk about others in this country". I always said that it was a lie and yet people continued saying that I should not go to the national team.

"I am a very calm guy and it is hard for me to be affected, but you have family, people close to you, who are affected more".

De Gea spoke about how hard it was to rectify the damage it had on his reputation with the Manchester United man still unsure why the accusations came out on the eve of a major tournament.

The centre-back reportedly thinks it is time for the club to attempt the signing of a different goalkeeper - Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak. "I still don't know what was behind it all and everything that came out a few days before the start of Euro 2016". It personally didn't affect me much but obviously I have people close to me that are affected by this more than me. "I just want to be 100 percent focused on the World Cup".

De Gea said his full focus was now on the World Cup. De Gea said he is ready to counter star Real marksman Cristiano Ronaldo.
