Mourinho: De Gea´s Golden Glove reflection of Man United

Manchester United goalkeeper, David De Gea has won the Premier League Golden Glove award this season.

After winning the coveted prize, De Gea rated this season as his best to date in Manchester United colours.

The Spanish No 1 has enjoyed another spectacular individual season but Jose Mourinho's team as a whole have come in for constant criticism this term.

The 27-year-old Spain global has 18 clean sheets to his name which is two more than arch-rival side Manchester City's Ederson with just one Premier League game left to play.

De Gea scooped the Golden Glove award for the first time after recording his 18th clean sheet of the season in Thursday's goalless draw at West Ham.

Since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, United has been very up and down, and on occasion, turned in some very awful single game performances.

The 27-year-old was crowned as the Red Devils' Player of the Year for the fourth time in five seasons earlier this month, having kept an unrivalled 18 clean sheets in the Premier League.

But they've finished second to, statistically, the best Premier League side ever and - aside from a poor Champions League exit at the hands of Sevilla and a shock League Cup defeat to Bristol City - they couldn't have expected any more from this season.

'It is about clean sheets and they are about the team.

De Gea's shut-out performance against West Ham ensured he can not be caught by Manchester City rival Ederson in the race for the Golden Glove.

"And that's the most important thing, to help the team in every way you can and to maintain that level of consistency which I believe is what makes the difference", he concluded. "Obviously, we are all very happy for David and it is a great team achievement".

'It is for everyone, it is a team award, not just for the goalkeeper.

"Of course, people will argue that they did not get close enough to City in the title race but, as far as I can see, this has been a very good season for them".
