Solskjaer should be worried about De Gea – Premier league legend Neville warns

Manchester United should be “worried” that star goalkeeper David de Gea is performing badly, former Manchester United defender Phil Neville.


De Gea’s errors in Sunday night’s 3-1 loss to Chelsea, has become a norm, costing the club a place in the final of the FA cup against Arsenal.



De Gea, a four time Manchester United player of the year has earned over 400 appearances and is one of the highest paid players in Manchester United.


De Gea has been relatively unchallenged as number one at Manchester United over recent years, but young goalkeeper Dean Henderson is now breathing down his neck after he was loaned from Sheffield United.

Former United star Neville admits Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will soon have a big decision to make following a disappointing showing from De Gea at Wembley against Chelsea

“He’s unrecognisable from the player that won Player of the Year awards.’ Neville told BBC Sports.

“If I was Solskjaer I’d be worried. His credentials are still up there with the best in the world but he’s lost all his confidence.”


Neville  claimed United got their tactics wrong after the team lined up in an unfamiliar 3-4-3 formation against the Blues.

Neville added: “I don’t think United had a player on the pitch, maybe [Bruno] Fernandes, that played well.


“I think Ole picked the wrong team and the wrong system.”
