Manchester United manager Olé Gunnar Solksjær will continue to face the same selection problem he faced last season when the new season starts. The Red Devils’ boss has admitted to having two of the best goalkeepers in the world in Dean Henderson and David De Gea while he has also admitted that it will be difficult to pick one as a regular starter over the other. While a lot of managers would enjoy the luxury of having two outstanding and excellent goalkeepers in their team, it appears to be entirely difficult to have an outright choice between the two options.×4096

Henderson returned to Old Trafford after spending some parts of his career out on loan during which he has been able to gain some more experience and has also improved to become one of the best shot-stoppers in the Premier League. His status as an excellent goalkeeper has seen him linked with a move away from United but the English goalkeeper has continued to remain adamant that he wants to stay and fight for his place at the club.

In one of the interviews he granted last season, Henderson insisted that he is ready to work his way to becoming a regular starter between the sticks not just for Manchester United but for the England national team as well. He is currently away on international duty with the Three Lions and remains second-fiddle under England head coach Gareth Southgate but he says that he didn’t expect it to be easy displacing the starters at club and country level.

De Gea, on the other hand, has largely been criticized in the past months over his dip in form but is looking forward to improving his abilities ahead of the new season. It is going to be a fierce battle for the number one shirt at Old Trafford next season.
