Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea is considered a huge fan of Slipknot. Back in 2015, De Gea had tweeted a picture of the American band performing at Manchester Arena, implying his admiration for them.
De Gea is known for his love for heavy metal bands in the United dressing room. However, very few of his teammates follow a similar love for music, like Juan Mata.
In an interview with the official website of Manchester United way back in 2014, David de Gea had stated that he liked metal and rock bands like Avenged Sevenfold and Metallica. He also stated that when he put the music on in the dressing room, everyone moaned.
He also asserted that most other players loved hip-hop. His recent images alongside Juan Mata with Slipknot band further confirms his love for the genre.
Manchester United have endured a difficult campaign this season. The Red Devils were defeated by Liverpool at Anfield by a 2-0 scoreline. Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah scored for Liverpool to extend their lead on the top of the Premier League points table. United have bagged 34 points in 23 games and will next play against Burnley on Wednesday, January 22, 2020 (January 23 according to IST) in the Premier League.
