There seems to be some trouble coming up at Manchester United in terms of goalkeepers.
Dean Henderson is back at United after being on loan at Sheffield United – and he has had a remarkable run over there.
David De Gea looks set to be replaced by Henderson, ever he made some mistakes – and might be in the preferred starting XI anymore. And Solskjaer has no idea how to solve this issue.
Football pundit Gary Neville spoke on this issue.
“The idea that Dean Henderson would come into Manchester United and replace David de Gea as No 1 goalkeeper straight away… it won’t happen, I can guarantee it won’t happen,” Neville told Sky Sports’ FNF: Season Preview.
“This has got ‘problem’ written all over it. The one area of the pitch where you need consistency and stability is your goalkeeper, you need to know who your No 1 is, you cannot be flip-flopping. It just does not work; I’ve never seen it work at any club or at international level.
“Where there is a decision to be made about two goalkeepers you have to pick your No 1, go with him and stick with him, even if there is a mistake.
“Once you take David de Gea out of the team and put Henderson in, you may as well forget about De Gea. That’s coming from my experiences at United.
“The period between Peter Schmeichel and Edwin van der Sar we had Ricardo, Fabien Barthez, Mark Bosnich, Roy Carroll, Tim Howard, Massimo Taibi, many goalkeepers over a five- to six-year period and there was an inconsistency that certainly didn’t help.”
