Solskjaer discusses Henderson and De Gea after Man Utd draw
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists that David de Gea remains the best goalkeeper in the world in his eyes, but says Dean Henderson will be ready to fight for his place when he returns to the club.
De Gea made a dreadful error just three minutes into Sunday's clash with Everton at Goodison Park, as his attempted clearance struck Dominic Calvert-Lewin and bounced into the net.
United eventually got a point from a 1-1 draw, but De Gea's form has led many to suggest that Henderson will be ready to take the Spaniard's No.1 shirt when he returns to club in the summer following an impressive loan spell at Sheffield United.
"We want the best possible squad for Man Utd and Dean's our player," Solskjaer told his press conference at Goodison Park.
"He's doing really well at the moment, and the day he comes back he's obviously fighting to play here as well.
"But David's shown his reaction, the way he made amends and saved [Gylfi] Sigurdsson's chance at the end.
"David's the best goalkeeper in the world, Dean is a very good challenger and then Sergio [Romero, the current No.2] is a decent challenger as well.
"We want a squad full of quality and with competition and if you want to survive at the top you need to bounce off competitions from right, left and centre."
Former United skipper Roy Keane laid into De Gea during Sky Sports' coverage of the Everton clash.
"As a manager or player I'd kill him! You'd kill him!" said Keane at half-time .
"He's a goalkeeper being too clever. He just takes too long. What is he waiting for?!
