David de Gea was immense against Arsenal on Saturday. But do you know where he became so good?
Well he played futsal, but wasn't a goalkeeper!! He used to be a striker too. He's certainly good with his feet.
Here's a quote from his old coach, José Maria Cruz. 'At this school, David was an outfield player until the age of 14. We played futbol sala here, and he was our top goalscorer.' You have to understand that he loved to play. Futbol sala has great value in improving technical aspects of the game. Watch how calm he is with the ball at his feet. It improves control, balance, composure in tight spaces, your confidence on the ball.' #davesaves
