De Gea's spot being questioned after Solskjaer's comments

De Gea's spot being questioned after Solskjaer's comments

David de Gea has been Manchester United's starting goalkeeper ever since he joined the club back in 2011, yet Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's comments of praise towards Dean Henderson will trouble the Spaniard.

Solskjaer believes that Henderson will be the keeper to lead both England and Manchester United in the future, with him having a fantastic first season in the Premier League on loan at Sheffield United.

Speaking on Henderson's future, Solskjaer stated that "Dean has made some great choices over the years and has developed fantastically" yet his future is still not fully decided for next season.

He also confirmed that through his performances, Henderson "will be England's No.1 and Man United's No.1 at some point."

This will come as worrying news for de Gea, who has struggled in the past two seasons for any sort of consistency, looking like a shadow of his past self.

The Spaniard has been a mainstay for the club, making 394 appearances in all competitions since joining in 2011/12, managing a total of 138 clean sheets. An impressive record considering the state of the defenders that he had in front of him for most of the seasons.

On the other hand, Henderson has proved to be the new shining prospect when it comes to being between the sticks, managing 11 clean sheets in 30 games in all competitions.

Whatever the case, Manchester United have a wide array of fantastic goalkeepers in their disposal, with Sergio Romero also being put into the mix.
