De Gea Drama Part III

2 Sep

Manchester-United-MUFC-Louis-Van-Gaal-Real-Madrid-David-De-Gea-573719And the dramz continues! LFP President Javier Tebas said that Real Madrid’s story was closer to the truth than United’s. Cue the outrage!

Choice quotes from the story (but read the whole thing at the link)

But LFP chief Tebas told AS on Wednesday: “I am a lawyer and I know that in these situations there are two, three or four versions of events. As far as La Liga is concerned it is a handicap that De Gea is not here.

“I would have liked to see him play in La Liga because he is a Spanish goalkeeper and an excellent one but due to the circumstances that unfolded it wasn’t to be. What happened, as far as I know, is closest to the version given by Real Madrid.”

Expecting someone from the English FA or FIFA to issue a statement in 3…2…1 because FOMO.

Sergio Ramos, apparently as fed up with this story as most of the universe is, spoke for all of us today:

Life goes on… nobody has died for this.

And people, when Sergio Ramos is acting as the voice of reason, you know it’s time to just chill already.

Who will be the next to weigh in with official comments? The head of the LFP referees? Wayne Rooney’s trainer? Keylor Navas’ hairdresser? David De Gea’s abuela? The guy down the pub who is always drunkenly complaining about something? Xavi? (I’m sure that one has something to say. He always does.) I can’t wait to see who we hear from next!

But on a serious note, Vicente del Bosque said on Spanish radio that if De Gea doesn’t get playing time at United, it could affect his chances of representing Spain at Euro 2016:

If he doesn’t play it will be very difficult for him to come.

I’m sure that David is deeply unhappy about that. Not only will he have to fight for his spot at United, but on La Roja as well.

Juan Mata, being the adorable Care Bear that he is, had some supportive comments about his teammate and good friend:

“His hunger and professionalism are intact,” said Mata, 27.

“He seems the same as ever to me, calm and relaxed,” added Mata, who is on international duty with De Gea for Spain’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Slovakia on Saturday.

“It’s been a manic few days for him, he’s my friend and I’m there for him for whatever he needs. Right now he’s focused on the two upcoming games for the national team; being here will do him good and he’s going to be as professional as he has been throughout his career.

“His personality will help him. He manages to play even better in moments of maximum pressure and stress. His personality will help him on and off the pitch.

“We all know what a great goalkeeper he is and he would make any team in the world better. The fans will get behind him and so will the team.”

Oh Juanin, we all need someone like you in our corner!

      You know they should settle this? Like real men (and Gutis). DANCE OFF! In da club (on da beach) with da chiffon! Katie Ann, why do they not ask us about these things? We could take care of it so quickly. Pffft!

        Yeah! They could use those lousy emails and press releases; cut them up as confetti! Maybe Jese could come along and do some freestyle and beat droppin’.

        Too much? Yeah I thought so.

            All conflict resolution between football clubs should be handled by us (feat. Jey M) from now on.

              Well, that is true. Add showers and maybe a fashion show somewhere as a requirements and we’ve got ourselves resolving all sorts of issues. Presidents and other non-players need not attend.

    And it is Juan Mata for the win! Such a supportive friend! Give David a Krispy Kreme!

    Seriously, a Dance Off sounds just about right!

      I just don’t get why they don’t let us handle things? That Real Madrid Resort Island would have been a rousing success if wastishistas were in charge of the programming. Sheesh.

        Oh, our dreams and fantasies were dashed with that debacle. We really do know better! 😉
