Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Asks For 'Smiley Pictures Of De Gea & Henderson' In Hilarious Training Footage

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer joked he wants 'smiley pictures' of Manchester United goalkeepers David de Gea and Dean Henderson in hilarious training footage.


United have two of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League and the last month has seen Henderson get a run of games.

But ahead of the Red Devils' Europa League clash with Granada on Thursday, Solskjaer wanted to diffuse any issues.

He can be heard shouting over footage provided by Beanyman Sports: "Get some smiley pictures of them keepers. There's a warzone around here in the press!"

Fans have reacted to the clip and they're convinced Solskjaer could be one of football's funniest managers right now.

Academy graduate Henderson has held the number one jersey since a 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace.

De Gea travelled back to Spain for the birth of his first child and hasn't featured since returning to England.

Solskjaer has not confirmed who will start tomorrow's Europa League quarter-final but stresses the pair have a 'strong bond'

"David has had 10 fantastic years at Man United and he's had challengers [before]," the Norweigan said per The Guardian. "Of course they want to play - Dean has given it his all because everyone wants that place in the team. David does as well and it's a healthy competition.

"Goalkeeper departments are a very tightknit group. They work together in preparation, they have different gym sessions, individual sessions [to the rest of the squad], they stay together more.

"Naturally they create a bond and the spirit in the goalkeeping department has been top. But it's a healthy competition.

"Both of them are important, all of them want to play. It's the same for [the club's other goalkeepers] Lee Grant, Nathan Bishop and Sergio Romero: they want to play and that's a competition I like. David has been a top, top keeper and he still is.

"He's working to be ready when he plays. If it's Dean or David, I'm very comfortable with both of them and I'm very happy that none of them are happy to not play."
