David de Gea is determined to keep the momentum going after Manchester United ended their six-year trophy drought with a 2-1 win over Leicester City in the FA Cup final.
The Spanish goalkeeper was instrumental in the victory, making a number of crucial saves to deny the Foxes a late equaliser.
De Gea, who has been at United since 2011, was delighted to finally get his hands on a trophy with the club and is now determined to keep the momentum going.
“It’s been a long time since we won a trophy and it’s a great feeling,” he said.
“We have to keep this momentum going and keep pushing forward. We have to keep working hard and keep believing in ourselves.
“We have a great team and a great manager and I’m sure we can achieve more success in the future.”
De Gea has been one of United’s most consistent performers over the past few seasons and his performances have been recognised with a number of individual awards.
He was named United’s Player of the Year for the 2018/19 season and was also included in the PFA Team of the Year.
The 28-year-old is now hoping to add more silverware to his collection and is confident that United can challenge for major honours next season.
“We have a great squad and we can challenge for the title next season,” he said.
“We have to keep working hard and keep believing in ourselves. We have a great team and a great manager and I’m sure we can achieve more success in the future.”
De Gea’s commitment to the cause is admirable and his determination to keep the momentum going is sure to be a major boost for United as they look to build on their FA Cup success.
