Spain goalkeeper David de Gea demands public apology from PM Pedro Sanchez


De Gea spoke about how hard it was to rectify the damage it had on his reputation with the Manchester United man still unsure why the accusations came out on the eve of a major tournament.

Sanchez though said he "didn't feel comfortable" with De Gea as Spain goalkeeper at Euro 2016.

"I politely accepted his apology", said the five-time PFA Team of the Year goalkeeper.

"My future? The important thing is the World Cup and not to think of anything else that can divert you or upset you", De Gea said. It's very easy to talk about other people behind their back in this country. I always said that it was a lie and yet people continued saying that I should not go to the national team.

In Spain, we've grown accustomed to a high level of football and if the team doesn't win, it's seen as a fiasco. It personally didn't affect me much but obviously I have people close to me that are affected by this more than me. It's all water under the bridge now.

De Gea received a private apology but is seeking a public one to set the record straight.

European Council President Donald Tusk tweeted his support for the agreement: 'Thanks to you the impossible is becoming possible'. Athens contends that the name Macedonia represents a territorial claim over Greece's northern province, also named Macedonia .

The 27-year-old was linked to an underage prostitution ring involving a Spanish director named Torbe but was later cleared of all wrongdoing.

"We have to be focused".

"Football is football and a thousand things can happen.", he added.

'But I'm always calm. It is important to be focused and be 100%'.

Spain kick off their tournament with a mouth-watering clash against Portugal in Group B on Friday. De Gea said he is ready to counter star Real marksman Cristiano Ronaldo. In fact, Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has reportedly admitted that Real Madrid have the best players in every position of the field. But Portugal isn't just about Cristiano. they have a great side, they won the Euros and are in a good moment of form. We have a great national team but every game is a battle for us.
