Man Utd keeper De Gea happy with debut: The English is coming along

David De Gea was happy with his debut for Manchester United on the weekend.

The summer signing from Atletico Madrid made his Reds bow in the 3-1 win against Chicago Fire, pulling off a superb, instinctive stop just before half-time to prevent the champions from falling further behind.

"I'm slowly getting used to life here," he told MUTV. "I look forward to learning very quickly.

"There's some players I can speak to. Some of them speak a bit of Spanish and I'm learning English little-by-little and communicating better with the team.

"It's difficult but I'm young and, in a few months, when I've learned some English, I will be able to communicate perfectly with the others.

"We are missing Chicharito and Antonio Valencia, which will make life easier for me."
