Champions League: De Gea issues a rallying yell to Manchester United ahead of Barcelona trip

Manchester United goalkeeper, David De Gea, has rallied his team-mates that they must improve against Barcelona in the Champions League.

United travel to Barcelona on Tuesday, with  1-0 defeat in the quarter-final tie and battling for form, following their unimpressive Premier League 2-1 victory against West Ham.

 De Gea issued a stern warning ahead of the Camp Nou Showdown, after United failed to pick a shot on target at home to Barcelona in the opening leg.

“Of course it’s difficult, but if you want to be a top team you have to play big Champions League games, and the weekend after it’s the Premier League.

“So you have to be focused and ready for a difficult game again. I think we didn’t play well [against West Ham], we have to improve a lot and now we have a big challenge on Tuesday.

“We will try to fight and win the game. We can go with more confidence after the three points.

“It’s a big challenge, a special occasion, in Spain, against Barcelona, a Champions League night, so it’s going to be an amazing game.

“We’re happy with the win, but at the same time we have to improve a lot,” De Gea said according to Goal
