Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed he has never thought of dropping David De Gea despite his recent struggles in goal.
The Spaniard has suffered a dip in form in the last 18 months with him making a number of costly errors, but he now appears to be putting that nightmare period behind him.
“It did not cross my mind for one second,” said Solskjaer.
“Not at all. To be a Man Utd goalkeeper you have to have a strong mentality. David has a strong mentality and he has been here for so long that he is coming up to 400 games, and you don’t do that by being afraid of the limelight or being afraid of Old Trafford.
“You do that by walking out on to that pitch and showing them your quality and mentality and he is a strong character and I didn’t see any good in taking him out at all, no.”
