Former Manchester United manager David Moyes says that he would drop David de Gea from the starting lineup if he was still at Old Trafford.
Former manager David Moyes has said that Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea deserves to be dropped from the starting lineup.
De Gea has made a number of high-profile mistakes in recent games, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has opted against leaving the Spaniard out of his side.
Moyes has praised the ability of De Gea, but the Scot feels that second-choice Sergio Romero should be handed an opportunity in the closing two games of the season.
The 56-year-old told talkSPORT: “When you have a number two who is sitting on the bench and you are making mistakes, if you don’t get the opportunity to put yourself in the team I am saying to myself, ‘well, what is the point in having a number two then?’.
“With Man United, you are there to win, play well, you are paid very well, you are at the top club. You are not there to make mistakes.
“David de Gea is the best goalkeeper and has been for years but we have all been players, we make mistakes, and quite often we are left out the team.”
De Gea has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford due to 14 months remaining on his contract.
