Spain Under-21 coach Julen Lopetegui believes that Manchester United shot-stopper David de Gea will become a world-class player in the future.

Spain Under-21 coach Julen Lopetegui believes that Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea will grow to become a force in world football.

The 21-year-old had a tough start to his career at Old Trafford but has begun to cement a role in Sir Alex Ferguson's side.

"De Gea has played less in the Premier League this season, although he played the last game, and is now looking for regular games," Sky Sports News quotes Lopetegui as saying.

"I am sure he will make his mark for a long time in Manchester and on world football."

While De Gea has improved, the Spaniard has yet to become United's number one due to competition from Anders Lindegaard.
