Spain World Cup 'keeper De Gea wants public apology from prime minister

A miffed Spain goalkeeper David De Gea on Monday called for a public apology from the country's Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez over both parties disagreeing over a sex assault case involving the player before Euro 2016.

While appreciative of the personal apology, De Gea believes he should be given a public one. "Many people have been very unfair to me".

David de Gea spoke out about his taste in music in the Old Trafford dressing room and added that he may get banned for the music he plays for the other players.

"I politely accepted his apology", De Gea told Diario AS as he prepared for Spain's 2018 World Cup campaign in Russian Federation.

"I accepted his apology politely, but what he said back then was in public and for that his apology should also come in public", he said. But I'm always calm and come my way, I will continue to be the same.

"It is also true that most public figures who disrespected me have not even apologised in private".

1 will come face-to-face with the Real Madrid superstar on Friday when Spain open their Russian Federation 2018 campaign with an Iberian derby date against Portugal.

"It is water under the bridge and it came out that it was all a lie".

Jose Mourinho wants to tie De Gea down to a bumper new deal, but Real Madrid are continuing to show interest. De Gea travelled to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil but failed to make an appearance as Spain were eliminated in the group stage of the competition.

It had been said they could look to strike a deal before the World Cup begins in Russian Federation.

We know that it's always important to get off to a good start at the World Cup, and particularly this time because we are up against a tough and hard team. It is important to be focused and be 100%'.

"We have to face the game as we did in the qualifying phase, that is, playing our own game".

"He also has a great team behind him, they're European champions and it will be a tough game".
