Sergio Romero is set to start for Manchester United in the Europa League final, with Jose Mourinho saying there was “no dilemma” in sticking with the Argentina goalkeeper in favour of regular first-choice David de Gea.
Spain‘s De Gea, 26, played three games during the group stages but Romero, 30, has started each Europa League tie since the last-32 stage.
“I never saw in all my career two goalkeepers to be so friendly because it is a position when you always have a little bit of rivalry, especially if you are both the same kind of level,” said Mourinho.
“If everything goes normally, and we have no problems, Sergio plays in the final.”

“I think it is fair Sergio is going to play the final and David accepts, because he has already played Europa League matches and if we win the trophy, David wins the trophy.”
