- He is the best in the world. I have said it many times, said the Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær in January, when The Red Devils had just beaten Tottenham at Wembley.
But it may be that the Norwegian has the desire to review the opinion after the team's match against Barcelona. Here, it was not fun to be David de Gea, Solskjær or any other with the United emblem on the chest.
The Spanish landsholdsmålmand was holed by Lionel Messi and Philippe Coutinho in a 3-0 performance.
Particularly messi's second goal, he got much criticism after the ball on the weird show slipped under him.
- The second goal was embarrassing, writes The Mirror.
At the Daily Mail scores the spaniard 4.5 on their scale that goes up to ten.

the Manchester Evening News, which follows the club close, gives him the character two - only undergone by captain Ashley Young, who also played a horrible match. On de Gea, write:
- Got in one way or another rescued by Sergi Robertos attempt, but killed so the fight with his thin goalkeeping. His mistakes against Messi gave reminiscent of Massimo Taibi.
Taibi came to United in 1999, but the Italian goalkeeper was so incredibly poor that he was sent on after a few matches. He did, however, get the nickname 'The blind venezianer'. Not exactly a man you want to be compared with.
