Man Utd keeper De Gea eager to taste FA Cup glory

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."
