De Gea makes Mourinho demand of Man Utd teammates...

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea says the players need to stop hiding behind manager Jose Mourinho.

De Gea insists it's time those on the pitch started taking more responsibility.

“We've got a great manager," said De Gea. “He's very experienced, he's won everything there is to win in the game.

“What he's really good at is transmitting his winning mentality to the group.

“However, at the end of the day, it's down to ourselves – the players on the field.

“It's us who make the saves, create the chances and score the goals.

“So, as a group, we've got to get that level of consistency and quality throughout the season."
