De Gea upset by Steele departure

David de Gea is believed to be disappointed by David Moyes' decision to dismiss Manchester United's goalkeeping coach Eric Steele.

• Okwonga: No Moyes continuity

Steele left Old Trafford along with assistant manager Mike Phelan in a clear-out of the coaching staff as Moyes prepares to appoint his own backroom team.

But ESPN understands De Gea had hoped that Steele, with whom he had established a close relationship, would have stayed on.

Steele has been in contact with De Gea since at least 2010, even though the 22-year-old only moved to United in 2011, when he was signed as the replacement for the retiring Edwin van der Sar.

He also learned Spanish to help him communicate better with De Gea, whose form in the second half of last season earned him a place in the PFA Team of the Year.

Moyes is expected to bring in former England international Chris Woods, his goalkeeping coach at Everton, to replace Steele, who had been part of Sir Alex Ferguson's staff since joining from Manchester City in 2007.
