A angry Dean Henderson has revealed that he did not engage with the his new Manchester United manager. Erik ten Hag before he left on loan to Nottingham Forest. Hence, as he claimed that the Red Devils had gone back on the promises they made to Dean Henderson.
Henderson was part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s line-up of starters. That is, in the second quarter of the season 2020/2021. It was enough to secure Dean Henderson a spot within the England squad for Euro 2020. Furthermore, he was scheduled to replace the first choice goalie for United in the next season. Obviously, after David de Gea had endured an extremely difficult season.
But a poorly-timed incident of Covid-19. As well as, the return of de Gea to form meant Henderson was a solitary player last season. That is, in a slumber in the squad. He only made three senior appearances. Furthermore, none of them coming from the Premier League.
With little chance of taking over De Gea despite a fresh start under Ten Hag. Dean Henderson opted to depart Old Trafford to make the duration of the season to newly promoted Forest. In the lead-up to his first appearance in top flight since May 2021. That is, when they play Newcastle this weekend. The Englishman made use of the opportunity to criticize his parent club for what he called “criminal” conduct.
“I wanted the manager not to arrive and see me at training. I knew he’d likely prefer to keep me. Therefore, I attempted to complete the task, before I went on my departure during the football season. Hence, I informed the entire hierarchy that I needed to go out and play football. I don’t want to stay in this position playing second fiddle,” Dean Henderson told talkSPORT.
“It was everything planned. I was nearly gone when the manager showed up at the door. I’ve not ever spoken with the manager since. To be honest it’s been the most challenging year of my professional life. It’s been hard It’s been difficult. However, I’m so glad I came through it. I’m so thrilled to be here and am ready to go.
