Man Utd legend Van der Sar: De Gea development amazing

Manchester United legend Edwin van der Sar is full of praise for David de Gea.

The Dutchman, now working in the front office at Ajax, questioned De Gea's quality this time last year.

But he now says: "It's amazing how that boy has developed.

"He came from Spain and did not speak the language. England has different food, different tactics and a different way of training. Especially corners, free kicks and high balls are very different in the Spanish league.

"Physically, he has also grown tremendously."
