Former Manchester United goalkeeper Roy Carroll says David De Gea will be haunted by his errors.
De Gea‚Äôs poor punch led to Clint Dempsey‚Äôs equaliser at White Hart Lane on Sunday as Tottenham denied United three points.
It was the latest in a long line of mistakes from De Gea, 22, since his ¬£19m move from Atletico Madrid in 2011.
Carroll told the Daily Star: ‚ÄúOnce you make mistakes, people never forget about it, so I think as a young goalkeeper it‚Äôs very hard.
‚ÄúManchester United are one of the biggest teams in the world and if you make mistakes the press are always on your case all the time. That‚Äôs what happens at a big club.‚ÄĚ
Olympiakos keeper Carroll added: ‚ÄúI feel very sorry for him. I had four years there but I made a lot of mistakes as well.
‚ÄúYou need the manager‚Äôs backing and I think he‚Äôs got that because he‚Äôs played a lot of games since he‚Äôs come in.
‚ÄúHe‚Äôs a very good keeper. He‚Äôs still young.
‚ÄúThere have been a lot of changes at Manchester United across the back four this season with injuries, so I think it‚Äôs very difficult for him at the moment."
