Keane baffled by one Solskjaer decision at Man Utd
Former Man Utd captain Roy Keane has questioned Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s decision to stick with David de Gea despite his poor this season.
Solskjaer has consistently stuck by De Gea despite the Spaniard making numerous errors this campaign that have led to goals.
The 29-year-old kept his 13th clean sheet of the season on Sunday as Man Utd beat Leicester City 2-0 to ensure a top-four finish in the Premier League.
Speaking about De Gea, Keane told Sky Sports: “I’ve never been a big fan of his. He makes far too many mistakes, big mistakes that cost United big points.
“We talk about recruitment, it’s a difficult part of the game. That’s just my opinion. If Manchester United want to challenge for league titles, they need a better goalkeeper.
“They need a change, they’ve done it before. I don’t know what the big song and dance is about a goalkeeper, Man United have been doing it for years.
“Strikers are dropped or sold, same with midfielders, but for some reason, with goalkeepers, they think we have to stick with the goalkeeper for a bit longer than others because of something they did two or three years ago.
“The game doesn’t work like that. We’ve seen Liverpool get onto another level when they’ve improved the goalkeeper.
“What’s the big deal? If he’s not doing it, he’s making mistakes, then make a change. There are good goalkeepers out there.”
