Chris Smalling England snub for World Cup motivates me at Manchester United

Chris Smalling England snub for World Cup motivates me at Manchester United

David de Gea has passed up an opportunity to commit his future to Manchester United, with the goalkeeper's deal set to expire next summer.

"It's one of the best clubs in the world so for me, it's really good to be part of this club".

"You want to be involved for a top club, you want to be involved for your country as well and it was a disappointment, but I had to turn it into a positive to a point where I have my rest and I have a full preseason which I have not had for a while".

While De Gea is thought to want a marked increase on his salary - now around £180,000 a week - he received criticism for some shaky displays during Spain's World Cup campaign.

The 27-year-old insists he has not been distracted, though, and said: "Normally, I never listen to the people who speak about me. I never listen to stupid things like this they say".

Pogba is a man full of talent, evident by his showing this summer for France at the World Cup in Russian Federation where Les Bleus clinched their first World Cup in 20 years.

"Normally I focus on my job and focus on trying to help my team and trying to improve every training session and try to be as a good as I can".

Marcus Rashford will start against the side who last season became the Swiss champions for the first time since 1986.

"Well, we are not used to playing on artificial grass so it's going to be a bit different", he said.

"It's such a special competition". More hard but we will train tonight to see how the balls play on the pitch.

Nemanja Matic has revealed what Jose Mourinho said to the Manchester United players at half-time of Saturday's win over Watford.

United have made little impact in the Champions League since De Gea joined them seven years ago - their best effort was to reach the last eight under David Moyes in 2013-14.

"We knew that, but they have quality, they have confidence because they won the first four games".

"It's about getting four or five wins on the bounce, that's what the manager emphasised before the game and it's on us to start producing that run".

Smalling was the man that made sure that United got a crucial second goal as they ended Watford's flawless start to the season on Saturday, and the defender thinks that the team can build on their recent successes.
