DAVID DE GEA has been slammed on social media for ‘criminal positioning’ that led to Ukraine’s winner against Spain.

A delightful through-ball from West Ham star Andriy Yarmolenko was picked up by substitute Viktor Tsygankov to slam the ball home for a 1-0 win.

David De Gea was slammed on Twitter for his positioning in conceding this goal against Ukraine

But it was Manchester United keeper De Gea who was heavily criticised for conceding.

He was caught half-way between coming out and staying on his line – and it didn’t go unnoticed by eagle-eyed footie fans.

Olly Lovel wrote that the Spaniard’s positioning was ‘criminal’, while Scott Rodgers asked why he ‘was so far out’.

Twitter user ‘Colm’ posted: “When that ball is played through he needs to either commit fully to going to the ball or get on his line, he did neither.

“It is literally a keeper’s job to make up for poor defending.”

Another joked that he was ‘hes trying to adapt to a sweeper keeper ffs’.

Eddie Glyn wrote: “Hendo will be licking his lips”, in a hint that De Gea could nopw lose his Manchester United No1 spot to Dean Henderson.

‘What is he doing’, ‘should retire’ and ‘finished keeper’ were just some of the other comments aimed at the 29-year-old.

David De Gea had nowhere to hide as he conceded against Ukraine

De Gea didn’t exactly head to international duty in the best form – he conceded SIX as his United side were thumped 6-1 by Tottenham last time out.

But most of the goals could be blamed on the shocking defending in front of him as oppose to keeper errors.

De Gea came in for some stinging criticism last season from one United legend.

Roy Keane was left seething after the stopper allowed Steve Bergwijn’s effort to go straight through ‘the most overrated goalkeeper I’ve seen in a long, long time’.

The no-nonsense Irishman said he was ‘sick to death of this goalkeeper’, that he would be ‘swinging punches at him’ at half-time, and told him to ‘get ataxi back to Manchester’.

United did manage to claw a goal back as the game finished 1-1, and De Gea almost redeemed himself with a world-class save from Heung-min Son.

But for Keane, the damage was done.

SunSport has compiled a list of the seven times De Gea has been left high and dry with errors – with more and more United fans now hoping boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gives Henderson his chance.
