"Fraud"- Man Utd fan makes feature length two-hour film of David De Gea mistakes, it's longer than The Lion King
| Last updated
A Manchester United fan has made a 1hr49min film of David De Gea's mistakes.
David de Gea’s United future is hanging in the balance after it emerged the club had performed a dramatic U-turn on his contract.
Indeed, as per the Athletic De Gea had reached an agreement on a new contract with the Old Trafford club towards the end of last season on drastically-reduced terms.
However, with the paperwork never completed, United changed their mind regarding how much they wanted to pay the shot-stopper, who has been at United since 2011.
De Gea was then told that the original contract offer was no longer relevant and in its place, new terms were available that would mean another considerable reduction in salary.
The 32-year-old has now officially become a free agent and is still undecided about his future.
Some United fans are hopeful the goalkeeper stays. Indeed, other than Cristiano Ronaldo, De Gea stands alone as a four-time winner of their Player of the Year award.
However, others appear desperate to see the Spaniard’s permanent departure from the club.
‘De Gea: Fraud’ compilation
One United fan has made a feature-length ‘film’ of De Gea’s errors across his career at United and Atletico Madrid.
EriksButcher put together 1hr49minutes worth of clips, which they unceremoniously titled ‘De Gea: Fraud’.
Indeed, the run-time of the video is longer than some of Hollywood’s most successful films, including Toy Story, The Lion King, and Richard Linklater's classic Before Sunset.
The video clocked more than two million views in less time than it would take to view the entire film.
While De Gea has proven to be a sensational shot-stopper throughout his career, in recent years mistakes have crept into his game that have cost United in key moments.
Despite the Spaniard winning the Golden Glove last term, he made a litany of errors leading to goals.
Indeed, he was arguably at fault for three goals in Brentford’s 4-0 demolition of United, while he let a soft cross bounce under his legs to gift a goal to Conor Coady in an FA Cup tie against Everton.
Furthermore, De Gea’s performance in the Europa League quarter-final second leg against Sevilla was one of his most error-prone performances ever for United, while he cost his side in a feeble FA Cup final performance against City.
