Manchester United boss Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, is adamant his number one shotstopper, David De Gea, is the best at what he does, and has been for the past 9 to 10 years.

Speaking recently to the media, the Norwegian said of the Spaniard: “He [David De Gea] had a tough ride early on with the physicality of football in England but he’s been the best goalkeeper in the world the last nine or 10 years and just to work with him closely, he’s still keen to learn. He’s still working hard.

“Richard and Craig [United’s goalkeeping coaches] have reignited a little bit of spark in David and he’s working really hard in training.”

De Gea has had some horrible games for United this season, and there have been calls for the on-loan Dean Henderson to be recalled to provide some competition for the Spain international.

Solskjaer has kept faith with De Gea since last season, and isn’t under pressure to drop the Spain international.
