Louis van Gaal has insisted David de Gea does not deserve to be singled out for praise, despite the Spanish goalkeeper's sensational form this season.

It's a common belief amongst Man United fans that the 24-year-old's performances have been key in helping the team climb up the table, but the Red Devils boss seemingly does not agree.

Indeed, Van Gaal has played down De Gea's contribution - claiming he is just doing what's expected of him in goal. Speaking to Manchester Evening News, the Dutch manager said:

"I think he doesn't save many points because he's my goalkeeper - his obligation is to hold balls You are thinking that is an exception. For other goalkeepers it's not like that."

The comments will undoubtedly cause concern amongst Man United fans, with the Spanish stopper yet to agree a new deal at Old Trafford.
