Champions League: De Gea issues warning to Manchester United ahead of Barcelona trip

Intro

Manchester United goalkeeper, David De Gea, has warned his team-mates that they must improve against Barcelona in the Champions League.

United travel to Barcelona on Tuesday, trailing 1-0 in the quarter-final tie and struggling for form, following their underwhelming Premier League 2-1 victory against West Ham.

And De Gea issued a rallying cry ahead of the Camp Nou blockbuster, after United failed to register a shot on target at home to Barca in the opening leg.

“Of course it’s difficult, but if you want to be a top team you have to play big Champions League games, and the weekend after it’s the Premier League.
