[Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea on adjusting to life in England, and his February 2012 save to preserve a 3-3 draw against Chelsea that indicated a turning point in his time at Old Trafford] [There were] some moments where you think ‘that’s not my place, I have to come back to Spain’. The weather, the language. There were difficult moments, but I fight. Juan Mata, the free-kick, probably was the point [where] everything changed. I played better, better, better

[David de Gea criticises his side for their lack of quality after a difficult season] I don’t think it’s through any lack of effort, the boys are leaving everything out on the field in training and games. You could point maybe to a lack of quality in certain areas, but certainly not a lack of fight

We need to win four or five games in a row to be at the top, but at the moment the team is not playing so well. We’re giving it everything, we’re trying to get those big wins that can put us high up in the table. But the truth is at the moment we’re not consistent enough, there’s much to train and much to improve

[Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has outlined his intention to stay at Old Trafford for many years to come] Just to be a part of this club is amazing. So imagine, 10 years, it’s like a dream. It’s great to play games with this club, so I hope I can be here more years, many years

I think the whole team improved a lot. We were in a good moment. I think we were in very good, top form. We didn’t concede many goals and, of course, with Bruno he brings a lot of quality. He’s a clever player, a top midfielder. The team improved with him and it was a pity that everything stopped because we were in a good moment, but hopefully with some players that were injured will be fit when it all starts again, so it will be a good challenge for everyone

[David de Gea says Manchester United have not done anything yet] Of course we are very confident now but we haven’t done anything yet. We have some important games coming now so we need to be very, very focused and keep the level that we showed today and in the last four games. We’re in a good mood, a good way, so yes, we keep looking forward to the next game. We’re really happy with three massive points and we’re really close to fourth and third positions. We are showing a lot of good things, like we did in the last three or four games. It’s great to see the team performing like this. xxxx

[De Gea kept a clean sheet on his 399th appearance for United at Villa Park, the most games of any overseas player for the club, surpassing Peter Schmeichel’s record] Sorry to Peter Schmeichel. It’s great. That means I’ve been here a long time and I’ve been playing really, really well to the top level so I’m really, really proud. I’m happy to play for this club for that many games. Hopefully I have another 400 games coming. So I’m really, really happy
