Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has issued a rallying call for his team-mates to show some character and finish the season strongly.

Last season’s Premier League champions are currently seventh in the league table on 57 points and failed to win the League Cup, are out of the FA Cup and the Champions League.

De Gea believes that it is wrong to assume that the Red Devils will not be focused for their remaining five league games and has assured the fans that they will try to win all of them to finish the season on a high.

"There are still plenty of important games to play," the Spaniard told the club’s official site. "We are Manchester United and it's our duty to win every game we take part in.”


The 23-year-old thinks that it is important for them to finish the season strongly so that they can finish in the European places and make a strong statement for next season.

"That's what we'll try to do now because we want to finish as high as we can in the league, ensure we're playing in a European competition next season and show we are still around and that we will never give in."

Manchester United paid a British transfer record fee of £17.8m for De Gea to prize him out of Atletico Madrid in 2011. The Spaniard signed a five-year contract with the Red Devils.
