Gary Neville believes the battle for the No.1 spot at Manchester United between David de Gea and Dean Henderson has received ‘an issue written throughout it’.
Henderson is again at Outdated Trafford after two spectacular mortgage spells with Sheffield United and signed a long-term contract final month to sign his intent to turn out to be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-choice goalkeeper.
De Gea’s kind was patchy in the direction of the tip of the season and that has led to calls from some followers for Henderson to start the marketing campaign in purpose, however Neville cannot see that taking place.
“The concept that Dean Henderson will simply are available in and change David de Gea as No.1 goalkeeper at Manchester United immediately – it will not occur, I can assure it will not occur,” Neville instructed Sky Sports activities.
“I believe this has received an issue written throughout it.
“The one space of the pitch that you simply want stability and consistency in is your goalkeeper. It is advisable know who your No.1 is. You can’t have it the place you are flip-flopping. It doesn’t work in any respect. I’ve by no means seen it work at any membership or worldwide stage the place there’s a choice to be made between two goalkeepers.
“You must repair your No.1, go together with him and even when there is a mistake, you follow him. As soon as you are taking De Gea out of the workforce and put Henderson in, you could as nicely overlook about De Gea.
“I believe it is an actual troublesome concern and that is coming from my expertise at United. Within the interval at United between Peter Schmeichel and Edwin van der Sar, after we had Ricardo, Barthez, Bosnich, Howard, Carroll, Taibi, we had many many goalkeepers over a five-six yr interval, there was an inconsistency. It wasn’t simply the goalkeeper place however it did not assist. You want stability in that place.”
