Quite honestly the thought of De Gea guiding the defense never really crossed my mind before for some reason. Might be because he’s the quiet type and we are so accustomed to DDG just doing what he does and that’s stopping shots. But like Van de Sar says, this is the last thing he has to unlock to become a God, at least a bigger one than he already is. ...the greats such as Buffon, VdS, Casillas, etc all had that trait to be able to command defenders and position them seeing things unfold before they actually did. From a pure goalkeeping standpoint, De Gea has it all. I mean who’s kidding? He’s virtually perfect technically but if he were able to learn this ability as well, man oh man. I get there are some captains who lead by example and are quiet and just let their playing do the talking for them. But if Dave could be more vocal to the players in front of him, that would do wonders for him and the team. Being able to direct traffic and dictate the play, what a ripple effect that would have. Imho he should be captain of the club but if he can assert himself as well, that would only further cement the case. Hoping he takes these words to heart as it would only be a positive.
