Manchester United: Fans slam David de Gea after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer performs U-turn

Manchester United: Fans slam David de Gea after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer performs U-turn -Manchester United

David de Gea has reportedly been given 12 months to save his career just days after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer defended the Manchester United keeper.

De Gea came under fire from Roy Keane as he couldn’t save Steven Bergwijn’s opening goal on Friday, which gave Tottenham the lead.

Solskjaer leapt to the goalkeeper’s defence and insisted he is still the best in the world.

However, the Norwegian now appears to have performed a dramatic U-turn, as reports have emerged the 29-year-old only has a year left to salvage his reputation at Old Trafford.

According to ESPN, Solskjaer has now issued De Gea with an ultimatum. Although the club legend is willing to give him another chance, Man United believe Dean Henderson, who is currently on loan at Sheffield United, can become the first-choice keeper in the long-term.

The veteran has played 30 games in the Premier League this season, saving just eight clean sheets and conceding 31 goals (Transfermarkt).

If the Spaniard can correct his mistakes, he will keep his place in the side, but Henderson’s impressive performances for the Blades have given the board pause for thought.

Unsurprisingly, many United fans slammed the £36m-valued “liability” as the news emerged, with one fan sarcastically tweeting “another Woodward masterclass” for letting Henderson stay at Bramall Lane whilst handing De Gea a lucrative contract.
