Video: David De Gea also forgets one of the key benefits of being a goalkeeper (Basel 2-1 Manchester United)
Hot on the heels of – but not quite as severe as – Vito Mannone’s howler, Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea got in on the act with his own bout of memory loss.
De Gea also forgot that as a goalkeeper he is entitled to catch, punch or stroke the ball when he’s in his penalty area. Instead he chose to stick out a foot to direct Xherdan Shaqiri’s cross into the direction of Marco Streller and set United on their way to a humiliating Champions League exit.
