Man Utd legend Van der Sar: De Gea needs to buck up ideas

Manchester United legend Edwin van der Sar says David De Gea cannot dwell on his error-ridden start to his Old Trafford career.

The £18million man was recalled for Sunday's breathtaking Barclays Premier League game at Chelsea, producing a Jekyll-and-Hyde display that saw him flap at more than one cross but also make a stunning stoppage-time save.

Van der Sar told the Mirror: "It's always difficult if you're coming into a new club and new league, especially the English one. It's a very demanding one, can be a very tough one.

"He has to deal with that. They paid a lot of money for him and he has to come through that."
