Manchester United made it to the Europa League final. The Red Devils were hanging on by the skin of their teeth in the end, but now, the fans have a day out in Stockholm to look forward to, in an extremely exciting game against Dutch side, Ajax.
The match is just less than a couple of weeks away and due to the fact that our Premier League campaign is all-but over, I’d fully expect Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff to turn all of his attentions to the game in Sweden.
Sergio Romero has been our Europa League goalkeeper all season, and credit to him, because he has been absolutely brilliant in every single game. The Argentine has made stunning save after stunning save, and now that we’re in the final, there were question marks about who should start in between the sticks.
Now, Mourinho has been speaking to the media to address that issue, and the Portuguese coach has confirmed that Romero will remain in goal for that game; before adding that David de Gea has accepted that’ll be the case.
“It is fair Sergio is going to play the final and David accepts that. If everything goes normal Sergio plays in the final.” Jose Mourinho is quoted as saying, as per Sky Sports.
Honestly, out of pure fairness, I’m more than happy. Romero has been great for us, and for the manager to take away such a grand opportunity for him at the last moment would be nothing short of cruel.
At this point in time, I’d trust them both equally to start in any calibre of game, and I’m delighted that the veteran is going to get his chance to shine. He has sat in behind De Gea for two years in the league, and this is his moment.
