Manchester United cannot win the league with De Gea as goalkeeper – Solskjaer receives warning

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has claimed Manchester United can not win the Premier League title with David De Gea as first-choice goalie.

The former Liverpool defender has urged manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to replace the struggling Spaniard with Dean Henderson in goal instead or better still buy a new goalie if both cannot perform at the highest level.

“The next big thing Manchester United need to do is sort the goalkeeper out,” Jamie Carragher told Sky Sports.

“David De Gea, right now, is not a goalkeeper to win the league. They have a really good understudy in Dean Henderson, but we don’t know if he’s Manchester United material.

“United aren’t going to win the league but I think they’re pretty safe for the top-four with the points they’ve got and how good they are.”

The former Liverpool man added: “If I was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, I would put Dean Henderson in for 10 or 12 games now because they need to find out if he’s Manchester United’s number one for next season.

“If he plays and he’s not good enough, they need to buy a new goalkeeper in the summer.”
