David De Gea's wife slams sexist trolls over Man Utd star's penalty horror show and says 'there's much to be done'

DAVID DE GEA'S wife, Edurne Garcia, has stated that sexism is alive and well – after a barrage of abuse following Manchester United's Europa League heartbreak.

Spanish keeper De Gea saw his spot-kick saved as the Red Devils lost Wednesday's final shootout 11-10 to Villarreal in Gdansk.

De Gea, 30, has been together with Spanish pop star Edurne, who took part in the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest, since 2010. The couple welcomed a baby daughter, Yanay, in March.

The 35-year-old singer has now vented her dismay at a series of crude messages posted on social media following the final.

Edurne tweeted: "Yet again it's been proved there is still much to be done to fight against sexism in society."

The singer hit out after one user wrote: "Will Edurne let De Gea pick up the baby now?"

A further joker said: "The moment De Gea gets back to the team hotel, Edurne will say she's got a headache."

And other keyboard warriors declared: "I'd pick Edurne for Spain and De Gea for Eurovision."

*Shootout pens.

United failed to win the Europa League after losing to Villarreal on penalties.

The Yellow Submarine opened the scoring on 29 minutes with Gerard Moreno and the Red Devils equalised in the second half with Edinson Cavani after 55 minutes.

De Gea then failed to save any of the LaLiga side's 11 penalties, which extended his miserable spot-kick record to 40 without a single save for club and country.

The Spain international then saw his own shot being saved by Villarreal goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli.
