DeGea Breaks Roy Keane’s Record After Aston Villa Match

Published

[DAILY STAR]

Manchester United’s number 1 goalkeeper David DeGea has broken the record long held by former Manchester United player Roy Keane.

De Gea played his 327th Premier League game – replacing Keane by a non-British player for United in the division for the most appearances.

On United’s all-time Premier League appearance list, the goalkeeper also rose to sixth – behind Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Gary Neville and Wayne Rooney.

De Gea, who joined the Red Devils in 2011, has some way to go before he climbs any higher on the list, with fourth-placed Rooney having played 393 times for United in the top flight.

Neville is a further seven games ahead on 400 games, while second-placed Scholes made 499 appearances.

At the moment, It is doubtful whether Giggs’ club record will ever be broken, with the winger having played a whopping 632 top-flight games for United.

Like Scholes and Neville, Giggs was a one-club man, and he played in United’s first team from the age of 17 until into 40s.

Giggs became the club’s most decorated player along the way, winning 13 Premier League titles and two Champions Leagues among a huge trophy haul.

Keane, like Giggs, was a mainstay of Sir Alex Ferguson’s hugely successful United teams, playing 326 times in the Premier League between 1993 and 2005.

While De Gea is racking up the appearances for United, he unlikely to match the trophy hauls of the club legends ahead of him in the appearances leaderboard.

The 30-year-old won the Premier League title during the 2012/13 season – Ferguson’s final campaign at the helm – and has also won the FA Cup, the Europa League and the EFL Cup with United.

With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side three points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool going into Friday’s clash against Villa, he will have his sights set on ending United’s title drought.
