Spain boss says De Gea needs to play at Man United

David De Gea needs to knuckle down and get back into the Manchester United team, according to his national team manager.

Vicente del Bosque has warned the goalkeeper he needs to be in the starting line-up at Old Trafford to give him hope of appearing at next summer's Euros.

"He needs to be professional and move on from this episode," Del Bosque said.

"I hope that he starts playing again and is happy, and if he plays well we can bring him along, otherwise if he doesn't play it will be very difficult for him to come (to the Euros)."
