Manchester United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must now prove that he is able to take big decisions by benching De Gea for the final 2 matches of the EPL, according to Ian Wright.
De Gea has been responsible for several losses in recent matches, including a blunder that led to Chelsea’s equalizer last week which has dampened Manchester United’s top four hopes.
Ole has however backed the goalkeeper to forget about the poor form in their last two matches against Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City but Wright is of the opinion that a different reaction is necessary.
His words, “If he [Solskjaer] really wants to stamp his mark and let people know he isn’t afraid to make decisions, he should take him out,”
“If the manager explains everything and tells him face to face why he’s leaving him out and giving him a break, that’s man-management and that’s what Solskjaer has to do.”
“He [De Gea] needs to go on holiday and sort his contract out,” Wright added. “Sometimes you have to take someone out the firing line. He’s one of the best goalkeepers in the world and he needs a break.
“There’s a lot going on and he’s under a lot of pressure. When you look at how United are playing at the moment, putting him in that situation is putting him under more pressure.”
