Spain World Cup 'keeper De Gea wants public apology from prime minister

Real Madrid captain, Sergio Ramos, has told the club that Manchester United goalkeeper, David De Gea was not the right signing for the Santiago Bernabeu landlords.

The Spanish PM met the Spain team last week when he attempted to ease the tension by apologising in person to De Gea, according to an ESPNFC report.

United star, De Gea has been vocal on his future in recent weeks, with the Spain global revealing he's fully focused on the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"I accepted his apology politely. 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", De Gea was quoted as saying by Diario AS.

"Football is football and a thousand things can happen".

De Gea had previously denied any involvement in the sex assault case with no evidence found against him. Come what may, I'll be the same.

"It's also true that the majority of public people have disrespected me and haven't bothered to apologise to me in private".

"It is important to be focused and be 100 per cent". "It's easy to talk about others in this country".

"I think for a time I was not treated as I should have been".

De Gea has developed into one of the best shot-stoppers in the world at the Theatre of Dreams and has been named in the PFA Team of the Year four times. But obviously, I have family and people that are close to you who are more affected than me.

"There are things that did a lot of damage and had an affect". From the beginning I said that everything was a lie and some even said that I shouldn't be in the national team and, in the end, it was shown to be a lie.

"It's a World Cup, you always go with the same desire", De Gea said. The side did win the trophy in 2010 and if De Gea plays to his best ability, the Spanish side will be tough to score against.

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