Southampton boss Pochettino feels for shaky Man Utd keeper De Gea

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea again was shaky in their 2-1 win over Southampton.

It raises more question marks over the Spain star's long-term future, although new Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino had some sympathy for De Gea.

"It is clear to me that any free-kick near to the box, or a corner, presents a goalscoring opportunity," he said.

"That doesn't happen as much in the Spanish league.

"Also, the goalkeeper in Spain is a bit more protected than here. That makes their job here a lot harder."
