Peter Schmeichel tips David de Gea to stay at Man Utd for another 10 years

Peter Schmeichel has backed David de Gea to play on at Manchester United for another decade.

The Spanish goalkeeper has been United’s No 1 since joining from Atletico Madrid in 2011.

In that time he has established himself as the world’s best keeper in an inconsistent Red Devils side.

A dip in form over the past 12 months has seen some question his abilities with youngster Dean Henderson waiting in the wings.

But Schmeichel reckons De Gea’s appetite for silverware will continue to drive him at Old Trafford.

David de Gea has been backed to remain at the club for 10 years

He told the United Review: “There have been trophies over the last nine years and David will want more of those before he’s done.

“He would far rather pick up a few more winner’s medals than Player of the Year trophies, I’m certain.

“David’s young and could play on here for another 10 years.”

De Gea has kept 11 clean sheets for a United side who are charging towards the Champions League.

And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has regularly defended his No 1 in light of recent criticism, concedes the 29-year-old needs to add more trophies to his CV.

“I don’t think he will be happy until he wins the bigger trophies,” said Solskjaer.

“Yes, he’s won personal awards but David is not the type to care about that. I think he wants the team to lift big as well.

“Staying at Manchester United for this amount of time and not having won more is something he will feel is a black dot in his career.”

Since moving to Manchester De Gea has won the Premier League once, both domestic cups and the Europa League.
