Its Time De Gea Step Down As Manchester Goalkeeper Says Alan Shearer

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer believes it is time for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to overthrow David De Gea as Manchester United's number one goalkeeper after his performance against Chelsea in the FA Cup semifinals on Sunday.

Solskjaer's team lost 3-1 when Chelsea entered the final after goals from Olivier Giroud, Mason Mount and an own goal by Harry Maguire.

De Gea, however, is a name on people's lips after his two mistakes turned out to be very expensive for the club of Manchester. The Spanish goalkeeper reached the foot of Giroud's effort, but was unable to prevent the ball from crossing the line.

However, Chelsea's second goal is one that De Gea must save "100 times out of 100" after United's manager said.

Mount tried hard to score outside the penalty area, which floated in De Gea's hands and on the net.

The mistake added pressure on the Spaniard, who looked like a completely changed keeper from who was selected as Manchester United's Best Player in 2014, 2015 and 2018. Many fans demanded the return of Dean Henderson, who is currently on loan. at Sheffield United.

Shearer joined the choir and told the BBC after the match that it was time to remove De Gea.I think it's time to take him down.That keeps happening.

I think you will bring [Henderson] back if you think he will be number one. I think it makes no sense to bring him back to sit on the bench.

He must bring it back as number one or keep it there for experience, but has the time come?" Yes I think so.

However, Phil Neville helps the struggling keeper number one, believing that his confidence needs to be restored before his performance improves.

He made a mistake. Look at three goals today. I think David De Gea will save all three.

I think if I were Ole Gunnar Solskjaer I would be worried about the level of performance. The order is very expensive at the United United Games.I will not leave it.

He has said that Henderson will be number one in England. Right now he will go with De Gea. His strength is still among the best in the world. But at this moment he has just lost confidence.
