Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea seemed happy with Wednesday’s Champions League draw at the Bernabeu, but refused euphoria as “the party is not over”.

The stopper, praised after his performance in the 1-1 draw in the first leg of the continental round, was reluctant to be over-confident when the opponents are the nine-time European champions.

“We are talking about Real Madrid, one of the world’s best. They still have to come to us”, De Gea warned.

However, the 20 year-old saw the draw as a positive outcome of the Bernabeu visit: “It was a good result for us though, one we deserved”, he affirmed.

The former Atletico de Madrid netminder, who displayed a whole recital of goalkeeping against Los Blacos, ended the game pleased in the personal aspect and content with his progression at the club.

“Overall, I am very happy with my performance. I am improving every day at Old Trafford and I am very happy”, De Gea admitted.

United will face Real Madrid in Manchester on March 5 and the Spaniard’s skills could result key, as a clean sheet is all Sir Alex Ferguson’s squad need to get through to the quarter-final round.
