Solskjaer discusses our goalkeeping situation
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken positively about Manchester United’s goalkeepers, with long-term no.1 David De Gea and youth product Dean Henderson working well together in training.
Solskjaer was impressed by De Gea’s recent performances with Spain and appreciated comments made by head coach Luis Enrique, who asked the Spanish press to celebrate David’s quality.
The boss is also pleased by Henderson’s displays in training following his return from a two-year loan spell at Sheffield United. And when asked which goalkeeper will start against Palace, the manager remained tight-lipped, choosing instead to praise the duo and reveal why Sergio Romero is unavailable.
“I’m not going to tell you the team today, no, I’m not,” said Ole. “But the goalkeeper training has been fantastic to watch. It’s so enjoyable. It’s the highest possible quality you can imagine.
This will give you goosebumps for 2020/21!
📽 The summer break may have been short, but we're still buzzing for the new season as Ole's Reds go marching on...
“I know that it’s great to see Luis Enrique talking about David the way he did after his internationals. Because coaches, you know, who work with players, they’ve got the respect that he shows, when he talks about ‘Oh, it’ll be nice if the press suddenly wrote what a great goalkeeper we have’.
Solskjaer’s starting XI for the match against Crystal Palace will be announced at 16:30 BST on Saturday, exactly one hour ahead of kick-off at the Theatre of Dreams.
