A fan answered the ‘keeper’: Deano, what a concentration you had during that match, you had almost nothing to do until the 81st minute to save only a top drawer. The future looks bright, boy. Future England No1 and future Manchester United No1. ‘
Other supporters described the save as ‘world class’ and predicted it would be the ‘first of many’ for the youngster.
His manager was also full of praise for the ‘keeper after the game. ‘We have a’ keeper there who has done his job. It was a good workout. That is the task that our keeper sometimes has to do. They need to stay focused and David has been doing that for years. ‘
