Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has demanded a public apology from Spanish PM Pedro Sanchez over his comments in the wake of an unfounded s.ex abuse scandal.
The Spain international refused to applaud the politician alongside his international team-mates in a move branded as “revenge” by some section of the Spanish media.
The 27-year-old was linked to an underage prostitution ring involving a Spanish director named Torbe but was later cleared of all wrongdoing.

At the time, Sanchez who was elected PM this month claimed he was uncomfortable seeing the keeper wearing the national colors of Spain.
De Gea said: “I politely accepted his apology.
“What he said at the time was in public, and that is why I think the apology should be made in public too.
“I am a very calm guy and it is difficult for me to be affected, but you have family, people close to you, who are affected more.
“It is water under the bridge and it came out that it was all a lie.
“I think for a time I was not treated as I should have been. A lot of people criticised me, knowing that what they said about me was not correct, but afterwards they did not have the bravery to rectify what they said.”
An unnamed prostitute accused the former Atletico Madrid star of organizing a s.ex party at a Madrid hotel in 2012.
