Gary Neville has told goalkeeper David De Gea that his career will be short under Erik ten Hag.
According to him, De Gea will not fit into the style of play of the Dutch coach, who prefers to play from the back.
Nevile believes that Ten Hag will not change his football philosophy of playing out from the back, through midfield, and taking those little risky passes that goalkeepers such as Manchester City’s Ederson do all the time.
“The goalkeeper needs to be brilliant on the ball and I suspect that with David de Gea, his career at Manchester United is probably going to be short-lived under Erik ten Hag,” he said on the Gary Neville Podcast.
“Because he’s going to be absolutely adamant that his philosophy of playing out from the back, playing through midfield, playing those little risky passes that we see City and Ederson do all the time—that we no longer see as risky because they do it so well—is something that I think he’s striving for and wants to get to.”
