David de Gea reveals magnificent lockdown beard as the Manchester United keeper gears up for the Premier League restart with new look

  • David de Gea is taking on the Premier League restart with a brand new look 
  • The Manchester United goalkeeper has grown a magnificent beard out  
  • Even team-mate Jesse Lingard has conceded defeat to the Spaniard’s facial hair 

David de Gea has switched up his style ahead of the Premier League restart, returning to training with an incredibly bushy beard. 

The Manchester United star has put his team-mates to shame by joining players like Jorginho and Roberto Firmino in emerging from lockdown with new, scruffier looks.  

De Gea’s last outing before the football shutdown saw him keep a clean-sheet in a sensational 2-0 victory over rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford. 

The Spaniard showed up with much tidier facial hair for that derby but it’s not the first time we’ve seen him leave the razor alone for a while.

Back in 2012, De Gea promised not to shave until United were crowned Premier League champions again. He eventually caved though, with the Red Devils still no nearer to a title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s reign.

The keeper’s team-mate Jesse Lingard, who famously sports less impressive facial hair, has conceded defeat to Spain’s No.1 on this occasion.        

‘I have been trying to grow mine for years,’ the United midfielder said.

‘David de Gea, his beard is very very long at the moment. He probably has the longest beard at the moment.’ 

The keeper’s new look was seen at Old Trafford as United geared up for the restart with a practice match at the stadium. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will kick off against Tottenham in a crucial top-four clash on June 19, as both sets of players will still be adjusting to the new reality of behind-closed-doors matches.
