Fergie Slams Cech Claims

By on July 17, 2011

Manchester United chief Sir Alex Ferguson was quick to defend the signing of Spanish youngster David de Gea after Chelsea goalkeeper Peter Cech suggested the goalie is to young to play at such a high level.

De Gea made his £17.5million move to Old Trafford last month after only a season as Atletico Madrid’s No1 which prompted a few eye brows to be raised by some, most notable Peter Cech. However, Fergie was quick to defend his decision to move for the 20-year old.

“I went to see Peter Cech when he was at Rennes. I said to myself, ‘Yeah, he’s too young’.

“But Chelsea bought him at the end of the season for £7m and he’s never been out of the team.

“So age doesn’t matter when you have the ability of a goalkeeper like Peter Cech or, we know, David De Gea.”

But Ferguson said: “David is young, he’s quick, he has fantastic presence and composure and his use of the ball is outstanding.”

    Lazy article!!! All you’ve done here is take an old comment made by Petr Cech and a recent comment by Fergue and merged them
    into a totally untrue story. The Fergie article was one in which he regrets not signing Cech.
