De Gea, Solskjaer and the Madrilenian's jinx in the semifinals

The Manchester United manager placed the Spanish goalkeeper as the starter in two eliminations. Before Romero had played, this time he would continue against Sevilla.


David de Gea will not have the opportunity to obtain revenge against Sevilla, or at least in principle he will have to do so from the bench because Ole Gunnar Solskaer plans to respect the title of Argentine Sergio Romero in the Europa League on this occasion. Twice during the season, the Norwegian coach decided to give the Madrid goalkeeper the title in competitions where he was not being the starter, the Carabao and the FA Cup, both in the semifinals. And in both, Manchester United ended up going to the hole. Against Chelsea, a few weeks ago, with two errors by the international with the Spanish National Team.

De Gea lived the yin and yang during the round of 16 tie against Sevilla in 2018. Several stops of merit in the first leg of Sánchez Pizjuán (0-0) kept United alive and allowed the goalkeeper to also win the Man of the trophy. Match. But on the return leg, De Gea was surprised by Ben Yedder's far and parallel shot at 0-1 and, above all, by a soft and not-too-placed header that he failed to stop before he crossed the line. His impotent and already sterile slap came when the linesman conceded the 0-2 and United ended, although Lukaku later scored, eliminated by the Sevilla players.

Nor are they being good professional moments right now for the Atlético exporter. Two of his mistakes led to that 1-3 loss to Chelsea. It was already planned that Romero would take the baton in the European competition, but in addition, behind, there is a goalkeeper who has been hitting hard at Old Trafford and whom many fans want to see under the three sticks, the young Dean Henderson (23 years old) , who has already been called up with the England senior team.
