De Gea wins Player of the Month award for March

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has been named the Player of the Month for March. The clubs supporters voted for the Spanish shot stopper in a monthly poll, where De Gea was against team-mates Wayne Rooney and Phil Jones. The 23-year-old had a good month in March keeping clean sheets against West Bromwich Albion and West Ham United in the Barclays Premier League and put in a great performance against Olympiacos in the UEFA Champions League, with United winning 3-0, 3-2 on aggregate qualifying for the quarter-finals of the competition, where they exited at the hands of current holders Bayern Munich.

De Gea won with 61% of the votes in the poll, with Wayne Rooney coming second with 34% and Phil Jones coming third with 5% of the votes. The young Spaniard, who could be involved in the FIFA World Cup in Brazil this summer after Víctor Valdés was ruled out through injury, has kept 19 clean sheets so far this season. De Gea spoke to the clubs official match day programme, United Review at the start of April, saying:

“I’ve been happy with my form and I’ve felt very confident. I’ve played a lot of games, learned a lot and gained consistency and stability. I’m pleased with how things are going.”

It is good to see De Gea rewarded this season, as for me he has been the stand out player throughout the season and I really hope he gets rewarded at the end of the season by winning the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award, which he deserves.  Some Manchester United supporters have set up a VoteDave hashtag on Twitter to get people to vote for him in the annual poll, so the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award goes to a player that does deserve it this season.
