Man United fans react to David De Gea being named in FIFPro World XI

Manchester United fans have congratulated and praised the services of goalkeeper David De Gea after the Spaniard was named in the FIFPro World XI at the FIFA Best Awards on Monday evening.

De Gea beat former Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois to the award, although Courtois walked away with the FIFA Best Goalkeeper award.

De Gea had another spectacular year at Old Trafford and is already carrying his form into the current season.

After a slow start to the season it is evident that the Red Devils will again be very much reliant on the 27-year-old. De Gea made a number of saves on the weekend in United’s 1-1 draw with Wolves, in what was a rather disappointing result for José Mourinho’s men.

United fans have emphasised the importance of De Gea to the team, suggesting he is very much the best player in the current United setup.

Here are some of the Twitter reactions by United fans:
