Carroll believes that the 22-year-old goalkeeper will receive the desired backing from Sir Alex Ferguson.
“I feel very sorry for him,” Carroll told BBC Radio 5 live.
“You need the manager’s backing and I think he’s got that because he’s played a lot of games since he’s come in.”
Rumours suggest that David de Gea will be sold as he failed to adapt to English football. This however does not seem very true when his average shot stopping rate and the number of saves he has made is considered at his tender age.
De gea’s weak punch led United to concede a goal at White Hart Lane but this is judged when you watch the replay a number of times. The situation on the pitch is always different.
Rumours include that the Spaniard might be heading to either Barcelona or Real Madrid.
However, Carroll believes that Alex Ferguson will remain more patient with the Spaniard and he will be given time to ‘adjust’.
“He’s a very good keeper. He’s still young.
“There have been a lot of changes at Manchester United across the back four this season with injuries so I think it’s very difficult for him at the moment.”
Carroll also admitted that when you play for Manchester United, you are automatically under a lot of pressure and people observe you and find out mistakes in you.
“I had four years there but I made a lot of mistakes as well,” he said.
“Once you make mistakes, people just never forget about it so I think as a young goalkeeper it’s very hard.
“Manchester United are one of the biggest teams in the world and if you make mistakes the press are always on your case all the time – that’s what happens at a big club like Manchester United.”
