The Red Devils boss says the goalkeeper remains confident and focused despite his costly error in the loss to Watford
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has dismissed David de Gea’s mistake against Watford as “one of those things” after his side suffered a 2-0 defeat on Sunday. Watford scored twice in the early stages of the second half to seal the three points against the Red Devils.
De Gea was held responsible for Watford’s first goal as Ismaila Sarr’s shot bounced past him and into the top corner before Troy Deeney converted a penalty.
Despite the costly setback, Solskjaer praised De Gea’s effort for United and says he still has confidence in him. “It’s one of those things,” he told BBC Sport. “He’s been so good in training and focused. “One goal is a mistake and the second is penalty. David’s been very confident lately and I don’t look at it any other way.”
