Old Trafford has arguably not seen a howler quite like David De Gea’s since Massimo Tiabi’s clanger against Southampton back in 1999.
With less than a minute left in extra time of the Capital One Cup semifinal between Man United and Sunderland, home goalie De Gea made the worst mistake of his Red Devil career allowing a relatively soft shot from Phil Bardsley to nestle in the net.
Whilst De Gea’s error was appalling to watch at first instance, it was made to seem all the more galling by the reaction of David Moyes on the United sideline.
Facing so much criticism in his first season in the Old Trafford dugout, Moyes simply dropped his mouth and closed his eyes as if he wished to earth would open up and swallow him whole.
