What David de Gea told Manchester United teammates after Barcelona howler

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea felt innocent after his team’s exit from the Champions League as Barcelona progressed to the semi-final of the competition. The Spaniard had a match to forget against Barcelona as he allowed Lionel Messi to show his immense talent to put the home side ahead with a fine effort from the edge of the box. According to The Sun, De Gea was furious with himself for the costly error and apologised to the rest of the team in the dressing room after the game. Although none of his teammates blamed De Gea for the mistake he nevertheless blames himself for the loss. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sympathetic afterwards, saying: "That’s unfortunate with goalkeepers. When you make an error it can get highlighted and that’ll be remembered tonight. "But he made some fantastic saves as well, which all in all, his contribution to the team is good but sometimes that happens in football. You know when you get to this level you cannot slip up and you cannot make mistakes and you’ve got to take the chances you get yourself. And we didn’t capitalise on our great chance, but then they have their first two shots on target, that’s two goals and game over."
