Dean Henderson is not too inferior to Nick Pope as well as Jordan Pickford in the basic stats. However, the ability to play feet and experience in international competitions is a minus point for goalkeeper MU.
The 23-year-old goalkeeper is ready to compete for the main starting spot at Man Utd after two successful seasons in Sheffield.
“My goal is to play next season. I don’t want to be on the bench after what I did last season. The new season is about to begin, and I am gaining momentum. It won’t be okay if I sit for one. place and not play. I think it does not help either side, both me and Man Utd, “Goal quoted Dean Henderson.
The young England goalkeeper added: “David de Gea is clearly the team’s excellent and important goalkeeper for many years. He’s phenomenal. Having a career like De Gea is what I aspire to. I will be back on the first day of the new season to take my place in the starting lineup.
Henderson signed a five-year contract with the Old Trafford team. The British goalkeeper will receive a salary of £ 120,000 a week, 10 times the old income. This makes him one of the highest-paid goalkeepers in the world.
In the 2019/20 season, Henderson played 40 matches in all competitions for Sheffield. He has 13 clean sheets in the Premier League, three less than Ederson Moreas, owner of the Golden Gloves title.
The 1997-born goalkeeper said: “You can get a lot from practice. Obviously, it is a good thing to learn from De Gea, other goalkeepers or goalkeepers coach. But I think it’s nothing. comparable to playing time on the field “.
“I left Man Utd five years ago, starting at Stockport, Grimsby, Shrewsbury and then Sheffield. It shows how much I have learned by myself, experienced in games because of the situations. you cannot experience in practice. I have no illusion that I will fall back if I sit on the bench. But, I need time to play, “he said.
