David De Gea Can Still Be Man Utd First Choice
Under fire Manchester United goalie, David De Gea, has been given a lot of criticism recently.
The 29 year old has spent 9 years at the club where he enjoyed a successful career as their first choice shot stopper.
This wasn’t the case last season. Last season saw the spaniard make costly mistakes that made fans and pundits alike question his performances.
Contrary to that, his teammate, Dean Henderson enjoyed two productive seasons on loan at Sheffield United before rejoining his parent club for the 2020/21 season.
When asked if he thinks he would maintain his first choice status he responded…
I have been here for many years now. I have a lot of experience and think I’ve been at a very good level for a long time now. I have the confidence of the gaffer, theclub and my teammates. I’m happy to be here. Hopefully, good things will happen to this club -like trophies- and I hope I can remain the number one for a long timeDavid De Gea
He also stated that the competition between the pair pushes them to work harder and be better.
Manchester United is a huge club and requires competition in all positions.I have always had very good competition with very good goalkeepers of the highest level. Ultimately, we help each other out.David De Gea
Former Man Utd Player, Andy Cole, believes De Gea would still be given a chance to be the first choice, but he admits that patience can only be stretched so far. And thus David De Gea would have to avoid making costly errors and impress because Dean Henderson would pounce on any opportunity.
I think David is in a little bit of credit for his previous seasons at Manchester United. I know he always felt fresh every season – season in, season out-but he is in a bit of credit. I think it’s more what he doesn’t do. If he has a season like he did last season Henderson will definitely get his opportunity.Andy Cole
Henderson is yet to make a bow in the premier league for the club this season. He however, was in between the sticks during the sides games against Luton and Brighton and he kept clean sheets in the two of them. Andy Cole continued:
I’m not going to be disrespectful to Sheffield United, but playing for Manchester United you always got to be on your toes. For 50 – 60 minutes you might not touch the ball and then you might be required to produce a world-class save. Henderson has done that so I think he’s proven that he is a very good keeper and De Gea is going to have to Battle to stay number one.Andy Cole
