Solskjaer expects Henderson to become Manchester United’s No 1

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says that Sheffield United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has the quality to become the number one goalkeeper at both Manchester United and the England national team. The goaltender is currently on a two-season long loan from the Red Devils at Sheffield United and has been impressing for the Blades in the Premier League.

“Dean has made some great choices over the years and has developed fantastically,” said Solskjaer. “We’re looking at that in terms of where he’s going to be next season, but as yet that has not been decided. This season has proved a great experience for him, he’s done himself some favours with his performances, and proved he will be England’s No 1 and Man United’s No 1 at some point.”

The question will be when Henderson will get a chance in goal at Old Trafford. David de Gea recently signed a new deal at the club, keeping at United until the summer of 2023 with the option for a further year. “It’s not my job to keep the players happy or in the team or out of it. Part of it is their responsibility of performing and doing well”, Solskjaer said. “Dean has made some great choices over the years and developed fantastically – and still is.”
