COULD POOR EYESIGHT be to blame for David de Gea’s indifferent form so far this season?
The Spanish goalkeeper has struggled to adapt during his first season in the Premier League and The Guardian reports that the goalkeeper, who uses contact lenses, may seek out eye surgery in an attempt to help improve his form.
The goalkeeper initially considered treatment while playing for Atlético Madrid, but was told to wait a year for a stable prescription, while United’s full-time optometrist has now recommended that he consider surgery.
De Gea has had an indifferent season so far, coming under criticism following a series of errors, while he has been left out of the first team for the past few matches, with Alex Ferguson selecting Danish goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard ahead of him.
It is understood that De Gea hopes to have the treatment in June, as he is unlikely to be included in Spain’s Euro 2012 squad.
