De Gea coy on United future

"I just want to be 100 percent focused on the World Cup".

A miffed Spain goalkeeper David De Gea on Monday called for a public apology from the country's Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez over both parties disagreeing over a sex assault case involving the player before Euro 2016.

"My future? The important thing is the World Cup and not to think of anything else that can divert you or upset you", De Gea told reporters at Spain's Media Day ahead the World Cup.

The goalkeeper is now focusing on the World Cup with Spain, having been named in Julen Lopetegui's 23-man squad.

At the time Sanchez said he did not "feel comfortable with De Gea as the national team's goalkeeper".

"What he said at the time was in public, and that is why I think the apology should be made in public too". From the beginning I said that everything was a lie and some even said that I shouldn't be in the national team and, in the end, it was shown to be a lie. De Gea denied the accusations, which an investigation found to be false.

"It's also true that the majority of public people have disrespected me and haven't bothered to apologise to me in private".

In seven years at Old Trafford, De Gea has become a firm fans' favourite and one of Jose Mourinho's most important players, but he would not be drawn on his future at the club. But obviously, I have family and people that are close to you who are more affected than me.

"It is water under the bridge and it came out that it was all a lie".

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

Spain take on European champions Portugal in their Group B opener on June 15.

"I get a lot of criticism about my music but I always try to play them good music".

"We also have a great national team, and it will be a tough game". We are going with hope.
