REVEALED: De Gea apologised to Man Utd teammates

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea apologised to teammates for his howler in defeat to Barcelona.

The Spanish keeper, 28, was inconsolable after allowing Lionel Messi's second goal to squirm under his body as Barcelona marched to an easy 4-0 aggregate win, says The Sun.

He could do nothing about the Argentine's first, however, as Barca's No10 arrowed a left-footed curler into the bottom corner.

Similarly ex-Liverpool man Philippe Coutinho hit a sublime effort from outside the box that nestled into the top corner well out of De Gea's reach.

De Gea said sorry at full-time in the dressing room and even claimed his team could have won the tie had it not been for his error.
