Despite the fact that Sergio Romero was the regular #1 in European competition last season, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has elected to go with the usual starting goalkeeper, David de Gea, for the Red Devils UEFA Champions League group stage clash against FC Basel tomorrow night.

“I do what I think is the best for the team,” Mourinho said at his preview press conference (you can view the video at this link).

“I don’t like that clear separation of ‘I play in this competition and you play in this competition’. And I think in this moment, David is playing very well and is very confident. I will go with David tomorrow again.”

De Gea also met the media a few hours ago to preview the match, and here is the video of the full De Gea media session, via YouTube:
