Roy Keane disagrees with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s goalkeeper answer after Sky Sports interview

Roy Keane has taken exception to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s stance when queried about his goalkeeper situation at Manchester United.

The Red Devils are taking on Tottenham in the Premier League in a crucial clash for both sides in the battle for the top four.

Spurs are in desperate need of a victory while United sit second in the table and can breathe a bit easier.

Regardless, the match in north London is still a pivotal one and it speaks volumes that Dean Henderson was picked ahead of David de Gea.

It continue a remarkable rise from the bench to a starting spot in the last four league matches for United.

Dean Henderson appears to have taken over first-team duties from David de Gea

De Gea, on the other hand, looks like he has lost his first-team position – one he has had nailed down for 10 years, though he did feature in the Europa League against Granada.

When asked about his decision, Solskjaer said: “It’s now about finishing the season strongly.

“Dean [Henderson] has had good momentum and has played really well. David [de Gea] played well in Granada.

“He played Thursday night, travelled and everything, Dean has had more of a rest. I trust Dean.”

But Sky Sports pundit Keane has disagreed with his former team-mate, insisting the Norwegian has changed his mind over who his main man between the posts is now.

Roy Keane has insisted Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a new No. 1

The former midfielder said in the studio: “I wouldn’t agree with Ole.

“I think he sees Dean Henderson as his No.1 now. He’s obviously given him a run of games.

“OK he played De Gea during the week which was a comfortable game.

“But he’s given Dean his trust now to play in the big games, he’s certainly going to give him until the end of the season, unless he has a complete disaster.

“So I think De Gea is under huge pressure now to try and get his position back in the team.”
