Argentinian press hammer Solskjaer for decision to bench Sergio Romero in Europa League semi-final

The Argentinian press have gone to town on Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after he decided to bench back-up keeper Sergio Romero in favour of David de Gea for his side’s Europa League semi-final against Sevilla last night.

Sevilla crushed Solskjaer’s hopes of lifting the same trophy former Red’s boss Jose Mourinho did in 2017 after beating United 2-1 in an exciting game which saw Bruno Fernandes score his 12th for his new club.

The game’s pre-match talking point came when Solskjaer announced that cup competition regular Romero had been dropped in favour of Spanish international De Gea.

Argentinian outlet ironically named Ole have issued a damning verdict on Solskjaer’s decision not to play Romero who has endured an impressive season having kept 12 clean sheets in just 17 appearances.

The report does admit that De Gea wasn’t to blame for Sevilla’s goals but have asked the question why a keeper who is in such poor form would get a start in such a crucial game ahead of a keeper who is enjoying such a rich vein of form.

The South American press have eluded to the fact that Romero should look to depart United and have asked ‘until when’ will he endure this treatment.
