‘Well Within His Rights’ ‘Sad To See A Legend Treated Like This’ United Fans Debate Solskjaer’s Controversial Selection Decision

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea is no longer the club’s number one, according to reports in the local media.

Dean Henderson was selected ahead of the Spaniard for the 2-1 victory against Brighton last night and it appears the England international will now be given a long run in the side.

The decision has reportedly not gone down well with De Gea, and it is believed his relationship with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now deteriorated. Fans on Twitter are very much split on whether dropping the 30-year-old is a good idea:


Statistically, De Gea does have one of the worst save percentages in the league, with only Newcastle’s Karl Darlow, Crystal Palace’s Vicente Guaita and Southampton’s Alex McCarthy having worse numbers.

In that regard, De Gea has very little to complain about, but Henderson will know that his performances will come under the microscope in upcoming fixtures, and any mistake will be pounced upon by critics.
