Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted Manchester United will struggle to keep all three of their senior goalkeepers happy and will face a difficult decision this summer.
United’s boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has the luxury to choose between David de Gea, Sergio Romero, and Dean Henderson who is back from loan at Sheffield United for next season.
However, ahead of the Europa League tie with Copenhagen, Solskjaer admits a decision will have to be made.
“Competition for places is important and we’re looking to have competition for places. We have Dean, Sergio, and David at the moment in the ranks. Lee, the fantastic professional he is, backing them up. But it’ll be difficult obviously to keep three of them at the club. So we’ll see what the decision will be there”. Said Solskjaer.
Since Solskjaer’s arrival in Manchester United in December 2018, De Gea has been his first choice ahead of Romero.
However, the Spaniard’s place has come under scrutiny for the fact that he has made a number of high-profile errors this season.
Meanwhile, Henderson has arrived at Old Trafford after a great on loan season at Sheffield United. The majority feel he could be ready to take the No 1 place in United.
However, the 23-year-old could still end up having another year away on loan at Bramall Lane if Solskjaer decides to stick with De Gea and Sergio Romero.
Going into the Europa League tie with Copenhagen today, Solskjaer has the choice of De Gea and Romero with Henderson ineligible to participate in the mini-tournament in Germany.
The Norwegian faces a decision of whether to stick with Romero for the tournament conclusion.
He said, “I must be the most privileged manager in the world with the goalkeeping department. Sergio, David, and Henderson coming up. Three top goalkeepers. This Europa League have shown how important Sergio has been for us and David has always been performing. We’ll see what we’ll do and going forward”.
