Dean Henderson

Former England coach Glenn Hoddle has urged goalkeeper Dean Henderson to leave Manchester United in the summer.

Hoddle feels Henderson has all the abilities of a top keeper but staying on the bench would hinder his growth for both club and country as England struggle in that position heading into the World Cup.

“We also have an abundance of talented goalkeepers, Dean Henderson isn’t going to be playing regularly for Manchester United. I think that it is pretty evident that he is going to have to go on loan somewhere and play because it looks like David de Gea is going to be ahead of him.

“There’s no outstanding candidate at the moment, Jordan Pickford has been in control of the number one shirt but I believe there’s going to be a real challenge from the rest of the goalkeepers to try and take his place. Pickford is in control and it’s down to him to be consistent and there’s a lot going on at his club. I think the number one spot will go down to the wire,” Hoddle told Betfair.

Henderson missed out on England’s run to the Euro 2020 final through injury and has since dropped down the pecking order in Gareth Southgate’s side.
