Dean Henderson Left Fuming With Treatment At Man United Last Season
By Luke Delaney Updated

After a fantastic, breakthrough Premier League season on loan at Sheffield United in 2018/19, many Manchester United fans felt that Dean Henderson would someday become the club's new first choice goalkeeper.

After fighting for the jersey with David De Gea the following season, Henderson found game time limited last season due to the resurgence in form from the Spaniard.

The 25-year-old completed a loan move to Nottingham Forest at the start of the transfer window and has been speaking about his treatment at Old Trafford last year.

He's not pleased.

Dean Henderson on his time at Old Trafford

Henderson has said he was "fuming" after being promised that he would return from Euro 2020 as the club's number one goalkeeper.

Speaking to talkSport, Henderson said:

"To be honest, it has probably been the toughest 12 months of my career,

"The conversation I had coming out of the Euros squad was: ‘You’re coming back here to be the number one.’

"I got Covid-19, came back, so I should have still been the number one but then nobody followed through with what they had told me. It was frustrating, because I turned down so many good loans last summer for that reason, and they would not let me go."

Dean Henderson went on to call the situation "criminal" and spoke about the lack of contact between him and new Manchester United boss Erik Ten Hag.

"To sit there for 12 months, it is criminal really, at my age. I was fuming. I told the hierarchy that I need to be playing football and to let me go, and I was almost gone before the manager (Erik ten Hag) came through the door. I have not spoken to him since."

With the World Cup edging closer and Henderson dropping further down the pecking order in Gareth Southgate's goalkeeping options, regular football and impressive performances will be needed by Dean Henderson if he is to make the England squad for the World Cup.
