Manchester United fans give David De Gea a special ovation v Liverpool after signing new contract (Vine)

David De Gea was given a special ovation from the Manchester United fans today when his name was called out over the loudspeaker before kick-off against Liverpool.

It was a symbolic show of love and support from the United fans, welcoming the Spaniard back in from the cold after being left to watch from the stands since the start of the season.

But with his immediate future now all cleared up having signed a new contract with United yesterday, it’s all happy families once more, as De Gea returned to the starting lineup, with Sergio Romero dropping to the bench.
