​De Gea calls for Man Utd improvement after Atletico Madrid first leg

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea believes his side must do better in their second leg against Atlético Madrid in the Champions League.

The Red Devils scraped a 1-1 draw away from home in the first leg of their Round of 16 clash, with Atlético having the better opportunities.

While De Gea felt a draw was a fair result, he knows they must go up another gear to secure passage to the Quarter-Finals.

He told beIN Sports: “It as great to be back at home in Madrid. It was strange because I played for this club but it is football. We are Manchester United, we wanted to win, it was a tight game and both teams had a couple of chances in the whole game. The draw is a fair result.

“We came to a very difficult pitch against a very good team, they started with more intensity than us and won the 50-50s, they scored a very good goal. In the second half we showed that we have good character and we played good, scored a goal and everything to play at Old Trafford.”
