De Gea to leave Man United following Rangnick’s arrival – Sinclair

by OtownGist

Former England international, Trevor Sinclair has said that David De Gea will leave Manchester United following the arrival of new boss Ralf Rangnick.

Arsenal scored their first goal during the Premier League game on Thursday while the Manchester United goalkeeper lay on the ground injured.

And Sinclair believes Rangnick might consider axing the Spaniard for good.

Arsenal’s first goal continues to cause controversy after the Gunners were allowed to score with De Gea down and facing the wrong way.

De Gea got back on his feet moments later and the referee allowed the game continue and award the goal.

And ex-Manchester City winger Sinclair believes the only thing to blame for the goal is De Gea’s lack of courage.

“They got it right,” Sinclair said. “We’ve all been smashed in the ankle, it’s not going to get any worse.

“You can get back to your feet, wait for the ball to go out of play, then get the assistance you need medically.

“I can’t believe how lacking in bravery De Gea is. I’m really disappointed, his teammates will be disappointed, the coaching staff and all the fans will be disappointed.

“Sometimes when you go on the pitch, you’ve got to take a bit of pain – and that wasn’t good enough.

“And he’s cost his team a goal because the shot from Smith Rowe wasn’t great.”

He continued: “With Ralf [Rangnick] coming in, wanting to play a high line, I think he’s going to have to be sweeper keeper.
