Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he has faith in goalkeeper David De Gea

- Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has stated clearly that he has faith in goalkeeper David De Gea

- De Gea has not been impressive for Manchester United recently in all competitions

- But Solskjaer said he will not drop the Spanish goalkeeper to the bench

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made it clear that he has faith in goalkeeper David De Gea despite poor form this season for the Red Devils.

The Spain international has not kept a clean sheet in 12 matches with the Red Devils conceding more nine goals in their last three games.

And on Wednesday, April 24, David De Gea continued with his unimpressive performance this season for Manchester United against City when he failed to keep out Leroy Sane's goal.

Former Manchester 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,'' Solskjaer said according to UK Sun.

Meanwhile, after crashing out of the 2018/19 Champions League, Manchester United are now fighting to finish among the top four teams this season.

The Red Devils are currently occupying sixth position on the Premier League standings with three games to end the season.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford backed Manchester United's David De Gea saying the harsh criticism aimed at the Spaniard showed how incredible the shot-stopper is for United.

Pickford said judging De Gea on the outcome of one game was unfair and that it was normal for all keepers to have bad days.
