Manchester United goalkeeper, David de Gea, has finally spoken after missing the decisive penalty in their Europa League final defeat.

Villarreal clinched the Europa League Cup on Wednesday night after De Gea missed his penalty kick, the 11th in the night.

All the 21 other players were perfect in their penalty shoot-out, including Geronimo Rulli, Villarreal keeper.

When it came to the turn of De Gea, he missed, as his shot was parried by Rulli.

De Gea who had to wrest back his starting spot in the team through the season has now vowed to bounce back.
