Cristiano Ronaldo is being blamed for the hard-to-forgive mistakes of goalkeeper David de Gea in the MU shirt last time.
David De Gea continued to disappoint when making a mistake, causing MU to receive 2 goals and lose to Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final. But this is not the first time the Spaniard has been criticized for this.
Since last season, De Gea has at least 6 mistakes that made MU lose points against Chelsea, Tottenham, Everton, Watford, Barca or Arsenal.
Many factors have been put in place to explain De Gea’s miserable performance, including a very strange cause related to Cristiano Ronaldo.
Some comments that Ronaldo must bear a responsibility for De Gea’s mistakes in the past though not in the same team and also played in two different tournaments. The last time the two faced each other took place since November 2018 when MU encountered Juventus in the Champions League group stage of 2018/19.
But Ronaldo destroyed De Gea’s confidence five months earlier when the two were featured in the Portuguese match against Spain in the 2018 World Cup group stage. Escape at the end of the battle. However, the second goal was a great help of De Gea.
In this situation, Ronaldo shot slightly and hit De Gea’s position, but because of a moment of distraction, he let the ball hit the ball and flew into the net.
It is worth mentioning that the Spaniard made a mistake after spending an outstanding season and won the Golden Glove Award in the English Premier League 2017/18 with a record of 18 clean sheets.
However, he made a mistake at the opening game of the 2018 World Cup. Since then, De Gea has frequently made very silly errors and Ronaldo is joked by many Man Utd fans that he made the Spanish goalkeeper lose confidence.
