De Gea: I want to be United No 1

David de Gea has expressed a willingness to regain Manchester United's No 1 jersey following his appearance for Spain against Macedonia on Tuesday.

The goalkeeper has yet to figure in any competitive action for the Red Devils this season, with a proposed move to Real Madrid breaking down last week, but replaced Iker Casillas for La Roja's 1-0 victory over the Balkans in Euro 2016 qualifying.

“The truth is that we knew we'd be in for difficult game and it proved to be the case, especially as we played at their place,” he told reporters.

“Juan [Mata] scored a good goal and we earned three very important points.

“I felt good [in goal]. I was eager to play and now I'll keep working hard and see whether I'm lucky enough to also play for my club.

“The support we received was very important. I have some great teammates and am grateful for [everyone's support].

“My future will be the same as now; to be calm, keep working hard and improving. In short, I want to enjoy football. I'm happy.”
