Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has suggested that he was impressed with Sergio Romero’s display against Wolves.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer feels Sergio Romero has been putting pressure on first-choice goalkeeper David de Gea after his recent performances.

Sergio Romero kept Matt Doherty off the scoresheet with a brilliant one-handed save in the first half against Wolves. The 32-year old has managed to keep clean sheets in all his Europa league games and remains to perform well in the limited time that he gets.

And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did not shy away from praising Sergio Romero after his team’s 0-0 draw against Wolves.

“I’m happier to be in the replay than going out, it’s a tough place to come,” he told BBC Sport.

“They had chances. Sergio Romero made some great saves and we got off the hook with the header. Sergio has never let us down, he’s kept so many clean sheets. He is a fantastic human being and a top professional.

“He’s putting pressure on David de Gea and that’s what we want. We want the best players in the world here,” Solskjaer declared.

“It’s a competition I love. It’s a fair result that we are both still in the cup.”
