Javier Hernandez reckons that Manchester United team-mate David De Gea can become the best goalkeeper in the world.
The Spanish star has had a shaky start to his Old Trafford career but put in an exceptional performance in the Red Devils’ 1-1 draw with Real Madrid in the Champions League last week.
And his Mexican colleague reckons that the 22-year-old is a ‘complete’ shot stopper thanks to his ability between the sticks and with the ball at his feet, which could help him reach the top of his game in the coming years.
"A lot of people who know about football know that David is a top-class goalkeeper," the Mexican striker told MUTV.
“That is why Manchester United bought him. They saw how good he can be. If he wasn't at the right level to play at this club he wouldn't be here and they are trying to look after him.
"To me, he is a complete goalkeeper. You see the great saves he made on Wednesday. He can also play with his feet, which is very useful to see in a goalkeeper.
"Other people are speaking about when he has to go out and clear the corners and free-kicks. They say that is the weak part of his game. But I think he is doing brilliant and in a couple of years he will be the number one in the world."
And Hernandez reckons that the shot stopper doesn’t listen to people making negative remarks about his time at the club so far because he is too concerned with training hard improving himself.
"David is very focussed and doesn't care about what people say about him. He has a lot of confidence. He doesn't need to listen to what people say about him.
"He should just play and enjoys it because he knows he can be number one in the world."
