Fans have slammed David De Gea’s massive mistake during Manchester United’s Champions League group stage encounter with Atalanta.
The Italian side opened the scoring when Duvan Zapata gets the better of Aaron Wan-Bissaka down the flank left and crossed the ball into the box. Josip Ilicic then struck a ball into the bottom left and De Gea could only scramble as the ball rolled under him.
The goalkeeper, 31, was then criticised online for his blunder, with some even joking that he made the mistake as he’s hoping to get rid of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
One said: “De Gea wants to play under a serious manager.”
Another quipped: “De Gea might be Ole Out,” before one responded with “He definitely is.”
Elsewhere, general criticism was aimed at the goalie.
One said: “Just when the team is gaining confidence, De Gea drops a b*****.”
Another wrote: “Terrible effort by Rob Green whoops I meant De Gea.”
A third stated: “Someone said is not yet December but De Gea is already handing out gifts.”

De Gea has featured in 13 games in all competitions for the Red Devils, while his goalkeeping rival Dean Henderson, 24, has just made just one appearance all season, featuring in a League Cup match against West Ham.
Solskjaer recently lauded the Spaniard for his displays his season. The Norwegian said: “You know, people mature and players mature.
