One of the few consistently bright spots in a murky season, it should come as no surprise to anybody that David de Gea has been voted Player of the Month (of March) by users of Manchester United's Official Internet Spaces. Talking to Man United Dot Com about the award, he was predictably adorable:

I'm really happy to receive the award and especially grateful to the fans who voted for me. I always feel their support is very close and that's very important to me. So thanks to everyone.

He picked out his performance against Olympiacos in the second leg of the Champions League knockout tie as a particular highlight, and issued to fit in what tabloids like to call "a rallying cry" ...

There are still plenty of important games to play. We are Manchester United and it's our duty to win every game we take part in.

... before explaining why the rest of the season remains important:

That's what we'll try to do now because we want to finish as high as we can in the league, ensure we're playing in a European competition next season and show we are still around and that we will never give in.

So there we are. If the Europa League's good enough for him, then it's good enough for TBB.
