Manchester United legend Gary Neville has warned manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer against chopping and changing his goalkeeper this season.

The former United captain has urged the Norwegian to chose his preferred player for the role and stick with him.

Speaking on Sky Sports about the goalkeeper issue at Old Trafford, Gary Neville said: “This has got ‘problem’ written all over it. The one area of the pitch where you need consistency and stability is your goalkeeper, you need to know who your No 1 is, you cannot be flip-flopping. It just does not work.

“Where there is a decision to be made about two goalkeepers you have to pick your No 1, go with him and stick with him, even if there is a mistake. Once you take David de Gea out of the team and put Dean Henderson in, you may as well forget about De Gea. That’s coming from my experiences at Manchester United.”

Dean Henderson’s return to the club from his loan spell at Sheffield United means he will compete with David de Gea and Sergio Romero to be the club’s no.1 goalie this season.
