EPL: De Gea overtakes Cristiano Ronaldo in Manchester United award



Manchester United goalkeeper, David De Gea has overtaken Cristiano Rinaldo after winning the club’s Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award for the fourth time in five years.

The ceremony was held at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

The Spaniard was voted the club’s outstanding player of the 17/18 season by his team-mates after keeping 17 clean sheets in 34 Premier League games this term – a ratio of 1 in 2.

De Gea won the award three years in a roll between 2014-2017 but Ander Herrera ended his run last year.

The Spain’s first-choice goalkeeper was tied with Cristiano Ronaldo on three wins before Tuesday night but his award means he’s now won the prize more times than any other player in the club’s history.

De Gea, who also won the players’ player of the year, was understandably delighted with the award.

He told reporters, “It’s difficult to say in words what United means to me,” said De Gea.

“It’s amazing to play for this club, the history, the fans.

“It was hard in the beginning, I trained hard, I’m proud of myself.”
