Dean Henderson regrets not taking his opportunities

What was said?

Speaking to the club’s website, Henderson said, “I thrive off it.”

“I love it.

“I love playing in front of the supporters. Wherever I’ve been, I’ve always built up good relationships with them because I think they can help on a Saturday as much as we can help each other. I think they can become the 12th man.

“Unfortunately, at this moment in time, I’ve not yet had the opportunity here (in the Premier League at Old Trafford) because we had covid last year. It’s been a shame and that is something that grinds on me.

“I believe I can have an unbelievable relationship with the Manchester United fans, but until that day comes, I’ll keep working hard in the background. One day, I’ll build that rapport with them and kick on.”

Does Dean Henderson still have a future with Man United?

[player 12647] was one of the most exciting young players at [team 14]. During his academy days, he showed high potential and was being scouted by various clubs. However, he stayed at United and broke into the [league 8] when he was on loan at [team 21]. He had two magnificent seasons under [coach 455400] and returned to Man United in 2020.

During his Sheffield United days, [player 832] was struggling with form. Numerous mistakes and inconsistencies stayed with him for quite a long time. This lack of consistency resulted in Henderson’s opportunity. De Gea also picked up an injury that played a part in Henderson’s start.

One thing Henderson has over De Gea is better distribution. With Henderson in the goal, Man United’s build-up play improved significantly. However, there were still doubts regarding his shot-stopping.

De Gea was back fit but was on the bench for some games, and Henderson kept his place. However, mistakes increased in numbers, and lack of experience also impacted the youngster’s performances.

Ole did keep patience for quite some time, but the inevitable happened as Henderson was dropped for De Gea. The worst for Henderson was yet to come. De Gea’s performances improved towards the end of last season, and this season, he has been excellent. Henderson’s game time has reduced significantly, and a summer exit looks inevitable. It could be a permanent deal with United looking to offload Henderson this time.

Still, one thing is clear he has great potential and is only 25 years old. With proper coaching and a fresh start elsewhere, he can revive his club and international level career.
