De Gea To Be 'Demoted' After Penalty Miss

David de Gea will reportedly be punished by Manchester United for his crucial penalty miss in the Red Devils' loss to Villarreal in the UEFA Europa League final on Wednesday night.

'Liverpool Should Sell Salah Tomorrow'

With the match having ended in a 1-1 stalemate after extra-time, the English giants lost 11-10 on penalties to the Yellow Submarine, with De Gea missing the kick that handed Unai Emery his fourth UEL title. 

While the Spanish goalkeeper was consoled and comforted by his teammates after his effort from 12 yards was saved by Geronimo Rulli, the Daily Mirror has now reported that he could face punishment for his miss.

It is claimed the experienced Spaniard is now likely to be demoted for his error, and will play second choice to English shot-stopper Dean Henderson next season.

It is suggested that Henderson will start the next campaign in goal for United ahead of the Spain international, whom the club could potentially look to offload in the coming transfer window due to his mammoth wages. 

De Gea is believed to be on a weekly wage of £350 000 (R6.8 million) at the Premier League club, and looks to have lost his status as the team's out-and-out No. 1.
