Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: David de Gea has been the world’s best goalkeeper for 10 years

mirror: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists David de Gea has been the best goalkeeper in world football over the last 10 years.

The Manchester United No.1 has come under scrutiny recently – notably after a mistake to concede against Spurs last month which left Roy Keane furious.

And the pressure is on the Spaniard, who signed a big-money deal last September, tying him to United until 2024, amid Dean Henderson’s impressive form at Sheffield United.

The young Englishman is determined to return to Old Trafford and become No.1, and Solskjaer is increasingly facing having to make a decision with regards the 24-year-old.

De Gea will make his 399th United appearance against Aston Villa on Thursday, and club legend Peter Schmeichel insists he could have another 10 years left at United.

The great Dane believes De Gea will remain the No.1 for some time yet, and Solskjaer similarly maintains that he has no doubts De Gea is the world’s best.

“David has had some fantastic seasons here now and next year is his 10th,” Solskjaer said ahead of United’s away Premier League game at Aston Villa on Thursday.

“He has proven [former goalkeeping coach] Eric Steele right, that we believed in him.

“He had a little bit of a tough ride early on, with the physicality of football in England, but, for me, he has been the best goalkeeper in the world over the last nine or 10 years.

“Just to work with him closely, you see he’s still keen to learn, he’s still working hard.

“Richard [Hartis] coming in with Craig [Mawson] as the coaches, I think they’ve reignited a little bit of a spark in David and he’s working really hard in training.”
