MANCHESTER: Manchester United full-back Patrice Evra is confident new goal-keeper David De Gea will become a success at Old Trafford despite a difficult start to his Red Devils career. De Gea committed mistakes against Manchester City in the Community Shield and against West Brom in the opening Premier League game of the season. However, Evra was confident the young goal-keeper would overcome the difficult period. “I had the same thing when I joined United,” said Evra. “This is the way when you play for United, to accept criticism. I know he is going to make it.”
