Man Utd defender Jones: De Gea among best keepers in world

Manchester United defender Phil Jones hailed David De Gea as "world class" after their Champions League win over Olympiakos.

Jones praised van Persie and De Gea after the 3-2 aggregate win that booked United's spot in the quarter-finals, but reserved special words for the man between the posts.

"He's world-class," Jones told ManUtd.com. "He's up there with the best goalkeepers in the world. He can produce saves like that at critical moments in a match even when he's not really had much to do. He's alive to everything and won us the game."
