Man Utd boss Moyes: Ferguson brave to back De Gea

Manchester United boss David Moyes is full of praise for his No1 David De Gea.

De Gea has been outstanding for United during their inconsistent start to the season.

Moyes said: "When Sir Alex Ferguson brought David in there probably were a few seasons when it might have been a bit rocky but I think he has definitely established himself now.

"I have been really impressed by his athleticism and he is still a young goalkeeper.

"I thought the old manager was brave to bring a young goalkeeper in; it is actually hard to bring in young goalkeepers and young centre-halves. Hopefully David will feel the benefit of that in the years to come."
