David De Gea conceded 40th straight penalty before missing own spot-kick in Man Utd shootout heartbreak vs Villarreal

DAVID DE GEA conceded his 40th penalty in a row before missing his own spot-kick in Manchester United’s dramatic loss to Villarreal

The goalkeeper, 30, suffered Europa League final heartbreak after he stepped up to take the 22nd kick in the incredible showpiece shootout.

But while he would not have been expected to be required to find the net with his strike, the Spaniard failed to keep out ANY of Villarreal’s 11 penalties, including goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli’s, in a dramatic shootout finale.

That extended the £375,000-a-week star’s miserable unwanted record between the sticks for spot-kicks to 40 without a single save for club and country.

Incredibly, the last time De Gea did keep one out was more than five years ago – the 11th penalty save of his career.

He denied then-Everton striker Romelu Lukaku’s attempt in the FA Cup semi-final on April 23, 2016.

Since then, Lukaku has signed for United for £75m, left for Inter for £73m, won the Serie A title and been linked with a return to the Premier League.

Interestingly, in that same time period, Dean Henderson – left on the bench tonight – has five penalty saves in club football.

Three of those came with Shrewsbury in 2017-18, two on loan at Sheffield United including to deny Gabriel Jesus last year, and one in the Europa League earlier this season for United.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer threw on Juan Mata and Alex Telles in the final moments of extra-time and they duly dispatched their penalties.

But he opted against a Tim Krul-esque switch of goalkeeper for a penalty-saving specialist.

The crushing defeat means United’s wait for a trophy will stretch into a fifth year.
