Ole Gunnar Solskjaer fully supports David De Gea after Tottenham match.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has defended David de Gea after the goalkeeper was heavily criticised following the 1-1 draw with Tottenham.
De Gea was at fault when Stephen Bergwijn put Spurs in the lead and he was lambasted on Sky Sports by former United captain Roy Keane at half-time, who said “De Gea is the most overrated goalkeeper I’ve seen in a long, long time,”
Gary Neville also expressed his concern about the Spaniard’s form, saying: “He was the one player United could rely upon for the last four years but he’s not the same.”
Man United face Sheffield United on Wednesday evening as Solskjaer’s side line up at Old Trafford for the first time since winning the Manchester derby on March 8.
And speaking ahead of the game Solskjaer said he is still fully behind his ‘keeper.
“David is the best goalkeeper in the world,” his manager said.
He’s conceded two goals in the last seven game he’s played for us. There’s two games against City, Chelsea, of course Tottenham, Everton. Two goals in seven games, we’ve gone on a run not conceding goals.
The Everton one is a freak one, maybe. This one, he cannot save it.
