Dean Henderson is expected to be fit for the start of pre-season, following a thigh injury.
Manchester United Football Club have a goalkeeping situation to fix. Will the Red Devils bring in someone to replace David de Gea? Or will the club stick with the Spaniard?
One possible option could involve Dean Henderson, though I have to say that his future at the club looked pretty bleak the moment he launched a scathing attack on the club upon his departure to Nottingham Forest on loan.
Yesterday, we covered a claim which suggested Henderson was to undergo surgery that’d keep him out until August.
However, today, there has been contrasting news. It comes from the usually reliable Simon Stone of the BBC. He claims that the 26-year-old United player is expected to be fit for the start of pre-season training, following his season-ending injury.
Henderson hasn’t featured since mid-January, when he picked up the problem and Keylor Navas took charge of the starting job at Nottingham Forest.
Initially, he was expected back this term. However, the problem was worse than first feared and it has now been determined that Hendo needs surgery.
The fact he was expected to miss pre-season meant that United would have felt the need to bring in a keeper of some sort. Now, though, Henderson may still have a chance to prove his worth.
If The Englishman impresses during pre-season, there’s every chance that he can stake a genuine claim for the number one jersey. Ten Hag knows there’s no room for sentiment in football and he’ll always give the job to the best player available.
Fans are fickle, too. A few good performances and everyone will forget about what Hendo had to say to the media.
