Mourinho explains why De Gea was on the bench for United’s game against Anderlecht

Manchester United’s David de Gea is one of the best on the planet in my opinion. The Spaniard makes unbelievable saves after saves when he’s on song, and we’re brilliantly lucky to be able to call him our own.

However, the former Atletico Madrid man hasn’t played in the last two games, and now questions about his future are starting to be asked.

The self-proclaimed Special One has shed some light on the situation, and it’s just as I’d suspected.

When asked why David de Gea didn’t start against Anderlecht, the manager responded:

‘Sergio is playing virtually every match in the Europa League and he deserves this continuity. The fact he played against Sunderland is good for him,’ Mourinho said, as per The Metro.

‘We have two very good goalkeepers and we have two young keepers behind them both so we are fine.’

In my opinion, this is just an absolute non-story. Yet, journalists are trying to spark a fire out of nothing. Sergio Romero has been our cup goalkeeper all season, and for some odd reason, they were all in uproar when De Gea was named on the bench for our Europa League clash last night.

I’m pretty certain that as long as he isn’t injured, we’ll see De Gea back in between the sticks for our game against Chelsea this coming Sunday. Hopefully, that’ll end the speculation about his commitment to the cause.
