Man United players have faith in Solskjaer, says De Gea
Fresh from signing a new deal with Manchester United, David de Gea has spoken glowingly of boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
David de Gea insists Manchester United's players have complete faith in manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Red Devils have endured a mixed start to the 2019-20 campaign but returned to winning ways on Saturday with a slender 1-0 victory over Leicester City.
De Gea signs new deal at Man Utd
De Gea – who signed a new deal at Old Trafford until June 2023 on Monday – has dismissed suggestions some in the United camp are unhappy with Solskjaer, stating his belief the Norwegian is the right man for the job.
"From the moment he arrived here, he showed his faith in me, right from minute one," the Spain international told the official Manchester United app. "I think he had a massive impact with the team. Everyone has faith in him, that's the most important thing.
"The fans are behind him and he's a manager who knows the club really well and the people who work here, and I reckon that is essential.
"He also shows a lot of confidence in the younger players, which is important for us, and so he's a really great manager."
While United have won just two of their opening five Premier League games, they do look more solid at the back following the arrivals of Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
They have conceded four goals in those games and De Gea is pleased with the enhancements in defence.
"I think we have improved a lot defensively," he added. "We are conceding fewer goals than last season. I think that, last year, we were letting in too many goals, but we are defending better and, from there, the team is improving.
"Of course, when you defend well, the team is bound to improve. We have some great players up front and we just have to keep on improving.
"There are lots of things we can work on, so, little by little, we can try and build a very strong team, a team which can dominate games more and dictate the play and, with that, win games."
