Date published: Tuesday 21st July 2020 10:34 Man Utd legend Paul Scholes has backed David de Gea and claims that Spanish goalkeeper will “be back”. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side saw their impressive 19-match unbeaten run come to a disastrous end, after a heavy defeat to Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley.
