Man Utd coach Rangnick confirms Henderson, van de Beek starting against Young Boys

Manchester United interim coach Ralf Rangnick has confirmed Dean Henderson and Donny van de Beek will both start against Young Boys on Wednesday.

The minute-starved duo will be given a chance to impress in the Champions League group stage clash, with United having already secured top spot in their group.

Asked about Henderson and De Gea, Rangnick said; "Well, to start, both of them will play tomorrow in the first XI.

"As you saw, Donny came on as a sub last Sunday and I know that Dean is a very, very good, ambitious goalkeeper.

"We definitely need two goalkeepers, we have even three with Tom [Heaton] and with [Lee] Grant we have a fourth one, so we have four goalkeepers.

"But I would say the three goalkeepers that really come into recognition for the first team. As I said, I have to get to know the players first in the next couple of weeks in order to finally assess them.

"Right now, I am more than happy to have all of them on board and I will try to give them as much game time as possible."
