Football news - David De Gea could be best Manchester United keeper ever, says Solskjaer
David de Gea's wonder show at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday led Manchester United's interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to claim the Spaniard might be the club's best keeper ever.
No other Premier League keeper has made as many saves in 90 minutes as De Gea managed in 45 at Wembley and Solskjaer, who played in United teams with Danish great Peter Schmeichel and Dutchman Edwin van der Saar between the posts, said the 28-year-old could surpass both.
"We've had some great keepers at this club and I think he's challenging both Edwin and Peter for the number one spot historically," Solskjaer said.
"We had a good back four and David in behind them was unbelievable. You are allowed to have a good goalkeeper.
"I've played with a few fantastic goalkeepers. We have a tradition of having them and he has grown and grown. He deserves that man of the match today."
It was not De Gea's busiest day, though, since he arrived at United from Atletico Madrid in 2011. In 2017 he pulled off 14 stops in a league match at Arsenal.
"I was feeling very well with the first two saves, it was a great game," De Gea said. "I don't even remember some of the saves so I can't pick a best."
