Manchester United goalkeeper, David De Gea, has issued an apology to the club’s fans after their exit from the Champions League.
United crashed out of the tournament after losing 1-0 at Old Trafford to Atletico Madrid. This was after a 1-1 draw at the Wanda Metropolitano in Spain.
According to De Gea, the exit was disappointing, adding that the players didn’t do enough in their last two games.
“It’s taken me a few days to be able to talk about my intense disappointment from our Champions League exit,” says David, in a note shared with his followers on social media.
“We didn’t do enough over the two games but this is on us. We must use this as energy to improve ourselves, to learn, to achieve and challenge again. That is all we can do in this tough moment.
“I have said many times that we are far away from where we want to be but, we as players, will go again for the remaining Premier League games.”
