Keeper De Gea wants public apology from Spain PM

The claims against the duo came up in a court case against adult film director Torbe, with the goalkeeper remembering that one public figure to doubt his innocence was Pedro Sanchez, the man who only recently became Spain's new prime minister.

The newly appointed Prime Minister of Spain, Pedro Sánchez, visited the national team squad recently to wish them luck before they began they set off to Russian Federation for this summer's World Cup. What happens is that what they said at the time was public and that's why I think that the apologies should also be in public.

"From the off I gave a press conference saying it was all a lie but people spoke about me", De Gea told Spanish sports newspaper Diario AS. It's very important to have a good World Cup and I hope we can go far and win - that would be awesome.

Former Barcelona goalkeeper Vitor Baia believes David de Gea still has parts of his game needing to be improved. "It is easy to talk about others in this country".

"I always put my music on. A lot of people criticised me, knowing that what they said about me was not correct, but afterwards they did not have the bravery to rectify what they said". "I still don't know what was behind it all and everything that came out a few days before the start of Euro 2016".

"I think for a time I was not treated as I should have been. It is important to be focused and be 100 percent".

During the build up to the tournament, however, De Gea found himself involved in an allegation which not only changed him as a person but also soured his relationship with the national media. It personally didn't affect me much but obviously I have people close to me that are affected by this more than me.

"It's a World Cup, you always go with the same desire", De Gea said. We are going with hope.

"We are very excited, there is a good team, a good group".
