De Gea wants Spain's PM to offer public apology

De Gea wants Spain's PM to offer public apology

Spain's David de Gea wants the country's new Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez to publicly apologise for comments made about his alleged involvement in a sexual assault case two years ago.

During Spain's build-up to Euro 2016, David De Gea and Iker Muniain were implicated in a sex abuse scandal that they have since been cleared of, but haven't forgotten.

De Gea, though, says he is focused only on his national team commitments with Spain as Julen Lopetegui looks to guide La Roja to a second World Cup trophy. "The issue is that what he said back in the day was in public and that is why I think the apology should also be a public one".

"From the off I gave a press conference saying it was all a lie but people spoke about me", De Gea told Spanish sports newspaper Diario AS.

"You have to be focused on having a good World Cup - we are all good".

In seven years at Old Trafford, De Gea has become a firm fans' favourite and one of Jose Mourinho's most important players, but he would not be drawn on his future at the club.

Additionally, the agency says MI consumers who bought pre-cut melon at a Kroger store should also throw out the product. The FDA said it's working with the CDC to determine if the recalled products went to additional stores or states.

"I am a very calm kid and it is hard for me to be affected, but you have family, close people around you who affect you more, it is in the past and it came out that everything was a lie", De Gea told reporters on Monday.

"I think that for a time I wasn't treated as I should have been", he said. Come what may, I'll be the same. De Gea denied the accusations, which an investigation found to be false. In the end, things are shown, it turned out that everything was a lie.

"Many people criticised me, knowing that what they said wasn't correct, but then they have not had the courage to rectify it".

De Gea said his full focus was now on the World Cup despite continuing speculation that he could join Real Madrid, with Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak mooted as a potential replacement.

"We are very excited, there is a good team, a good group".

De Gea has been a key member of a United side going through a transition period, with his top class reflexes often earning the Red Devils valuable points.
