Solskjaer warned to drop De Gea for Dean Henderson

Former Aston Villa striker, Gabby Agbolanhor, has told Olé Gunnar Solskjaer to drop David De Gea for Manchester United’s upcoming games.

De Gea has had an error-ridden spell over past two years with Man United, and calls for his head have mounted, especially after his performance against Everton, where he contributed to two of their goals on Saturday.

Agbolanhor believes that people have shown enough patience with the Spaniard over the years, and says he should be dropped for the younger Dean Henderson, who seems more eager to impress.

Speaking on talkSPORT recently, the Villa legend said, “How many times have we been saying that with David De Gea? Next week he’ll make one good save and we’ll be like ‘all right, it’s forgotten now’.

“For me, Dean Henderson has to start. De Gea has made that many mistakes for Manchester United, he’s got to come and clear that cross and for the first Everton goal, he’s got to do better there.

“He can’t be parrying it straight into the path of the attacker. For me, he’s got to be dropped. But I just don’t see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the sort of manager that’s going to drop him. No matter what he does, he’s playing.”

Henderson is expected to play ahead of De Gea for Man United’s FA cup game with West Ham on Tuesday, after Solskjaer warned the Spain international he needs to earn his place in the team.
