Sergio Romero will fight for his spot in the Manchester United squad

Published 1 Comments

Romero is facing an almighty battle against Spaniard David De Gea for the Manchester United number one spot. The 28-year-old Argentina international joined Manchester United for free this summer and has started every United game so far this season.

This was largely due to the transfer speculation surrounding Manchester United player of the season for the last two years, David De Gea, with coach Louis Van Gaal not placing the Spanish star in the squad, claiming he wasn't 'focused'.


According to Sky Sports, Sergio Romero says he is fulfilling a dream by playing for Manchester United and will fight to keep his starting place, although fans and critics may disagree that he is the man for the job.

De Gea was expected to join Spanish giants Real Madrid, but the deal fell through at the eleventh hour after the relevant paperwork had not been completed.

This has now left manager Louis van Gaal in an awkward position with the Spanish shot stopper not wanting to sign a contract with the club, but because he is arguably United's best player, should he play him until he can leave for free next summer? Or should United punish him for not signing a contract with the club and leave him out of competitive games?

Romero will be hoping De Gea is out of favour with the boss and can prove himself worthy of the number one spot.


Romero has kept four clean sheets so far this season, but it has to be said the back four have really been doing their jobs to aid the goalkeeper, with Smalling and Blind both picking up Man of the match awards in the seasons opening games.

He was also heavily criticised for his performance in the 2-1 defeat at Swansea City prior to the international break. Questions are still being asked as to whether Romero is good enough to be a Manchester United's number one.

At present, De Gea is expected to be reintegrated into the United first-team, Romero will have to step up his game if he wants to start for United against Liverpool this weekend.
