Solskjaer hints De Gea WILL start over Henderson after Spain return as Man Utd boss says there is ‘no such thing as No1’

OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER has given a huge hint that David De Gea will go back into the side as his No 1 keeper.

And it casts doubt over the future of Dean Henderson at Manchester United, who will not accept another season as second choice.

De Gea has missed United’s last three games after returning to Spain to be with girlfriend Edurne for the birth of their daughter Yanay.

It was initially feared they could be without him for six games.

But De Gea, 30, came back to England at the start of the week and, although tonight’s clash with West Ham may be too soon as he has been self-isolating, he will not be out for long.

Solskjaer revealed: “You know, David has been here for ten years and he has been absolutely brilliant for us.

“He has pulled off save after save, season after season, at the highest level.

“I’m not blind, I have seen the last couple of weeks, with people writing David off.


“But that is wrong — David is a top, top goalkeeper.”

Solskjaer said of Henderson: “Dean is learning, he is getting better and better, he’s improving and there is no such thing as an undisputed No 1 here. You have got to perform.

“It’s a great position for me to be in.”
