Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed his decision on blundering goalkeeper David de Gea.
The Spain international has not kept a clean sheet in 12 matches with the Red Devils conceding more goals than in any other season
The United manager is insisting he has no plans to take out-of-form keeper De Gea out of the firing line.
The Spain star, 28, continued his torrid run of form when he failed to keep out Leroy Sane’s goal in Wednesday’s Manchester derby defeat.
United’s goals-against column is their worst in Premier League history and there are still three matches to play.
Now, the Sun reports, ex-United stopper Gary Bailey believes it is time for De Gea to be given a rest and let Sergio Romero have a go.
Asked if that was possible, Solskjaer said: “No. Not at all. Because I trust David.
“For me, he’s been the best player United have had last six or seven years, absolutely outstanding.
“Going through tough patches is part of a footballer’s career and David will be fine.”
Some have wondered if his contract issue with United is starting to affect his form.
The long-serving keeper is being linked with Real Madrid again after months of negotiations have failed to reach a conclusion.
But Solskjaer said: “That’s something you have to deal with as a footballer.
“You don’t always have a lot of years on your contract. But David’s coming in every single day doing what he should be doing.”
