De Gea beginning to settle says Evans

After his wonder save in last night's game against Ajax (click on the image, left),Jonny Evans has backed David De Gea to shine for Manchester United, claiming that the former Atletico Madrid stopper is finally settling into the red's dressing room. The spaniard has endured some difficult moments since his move to England but Evan's reckons De Gea's lack of English has spared him the worst of the critisism. 

"Probably it was a good thing David couldn't speak English at the start," said Evans.
"It seemed like he was coming into training and nothing was affecting him. He was just getting on with his game.
"But it was because he couldn't read or understand what was going on around him. Overall, that was probably better.

"Now his presence is building.The language barrier is being broken down and he is coming out of his shell a bit.
"He has a joke now and is not afraid of getting involved in some of the dressing room chat. That is settling him down.'
Evans also backed De Gea's character saying "David had a big price tag when he came to us during the summer," said Evans. "People had these huge expectations. From day one, his shot stopping has been unbelievable. He pulls off saves that are amazing. He just needed a bit of confidence. I am sure everyone at Manchester United has been through stages when it has not gone well.Then it is down to your character to pull you through."
