Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea admits he wants to taste FA Cup glory.

After playing in five ties during his two seasons at United, De Gea has a good understanding of the stature of the FA Cup, the equivalent of the Copa Del Rey in his homeland.

"It’s a historic, well-known, long-running competition," the 23-year-old told ManUtd.com. "It’s always in the news in Spain and I remember watching it on TV when I was younger.

"I get the sense the FA Cup is a little more prestigious than the Copa but they’re certainly similar. It’s a competition we’re proud to play in."
