Respect your elders: Man Utd keeper De Gea admits calling senior teammate 'Mr Giggs'

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea admits he calls teammate Ryan Giggs 'Mr Giggs'!

Giggs is 17 years De Gea's senior and the Spaniard concedes he feels more comfortable calling him by a more formal name.

"What is the secret of all those years? For that it is necessary to speak with Mr Giggs," said De Gea.

"For me, Ryan is Mr Giggs - because he is a legend in football."
