De Gea: We are united


David de Gea insists the Manchester United dressing room is 'very together' despite rumours suggesting all was not well within the squad.

United are without a win in their last five games and were dumped out of the Champions League when they were beaten 2-1 by Wolfsburg.

The slump in form coupled with a number of poor performances has led to reports that some of the players have grown tired of Louis van Gaal's philosophy and training methods, but De Gea insists the squad.

"There’s a great atmosphere. The dressing room is very together and united, they are a great set of lads and we’re all very happy with the group of players that we have and I think that’s really important in a team if it wants to achieve big things," he told Inside United.

"I think we have a very young side and I think that the youngsters who are coming up through the youth ranks are fitting in really well.

"They are all good players and after all they represent the future of Manchester United and I reckon that gradually they will become the side of the future and we’re all delighted that they’re with us.

“We know that the month of December is always a tough one with a lot of fixtures, and the tiredness can build up, so we need to come out of it at the end with a few good results. We’re working on it right now."
