FIFA World Cup Goalkeeper David De Gea Demands Public Apology From Spain Prime Minister

Spain's David de Gea wants the country's new Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez to publicly apologise for comments made about the goalkeeper's alleged involvement in a sexual assault case two years ago.

"The important thing is the World Cup - there can not be anything else to turn your attention away from that", the 27-year-old said.

"I accepted his apology politely, but what he said back then was in public and for that his apology should also come in public", he said.

"Football is football and a thousand things can happen.", he added.

De Gea should be focussed on the World Cup as he looks to take Spain all the way to the final and win the trophy.

Meanwhile, De Gea has claimed he is too focused on the World Cup to think about his future.

"I always put my music on", he told Copa90. "I still don't know what was behind it all and everything that came out a few days before the start of Euro 2016".

"The press conference I gave already said that it was all a lie, but everyone followed talking about if I should not be in the national team, what if".

"I think that for a time I wasn't treated as I should have been", he said. De Gea denied the accusations, which an investigation found to be false.

Asked whether or not the allegations marred the experience of the European Championship, De Gea said: "I'm a very calm kid, so it didn't affect me a lot".

"In the end, things are proven and we saw that it was all a lie".

De Gea said his full focus was now on the World Cup despite continuing speculation that he could join Real Madrid, with Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak mooted as a potential replacement.

"We also have a great national team, and it will be a tough game". In addition, Jose Mourinho's team finished trophyless last campaign, which can cause some severe damage in their hopes of clinging on to David de Gea this summer.
