Semoga kelak bisa menjadi kiper utama United yang tangguh :)



ManUtd.com takes a closer look at Dean Henderson as the highly-rated young goalkeeper returns to Manchester United ahead of Monday's Emirates FA Cup tie with Shrewsbury Town...


One of the stand-out performers in last season’s Academy team, Henderson has made a positive impression as he bids to make a regular step up to reserve-team football and has benefited from a loan spell at Stockport County. The no.1 in Nicky Butt’s UEFA Youth League side earlier this season, he joined the club as a 14-year-old from Carlisle United after impressing then goalkeeping coach Eric Steele during a trial. Already six feet two inches tall, the 18-year-old feels he is still growing as he becomes an imposing figure between the posts.


Working with top-class goalkeepers at United is providing invaluable experience for Henderson and he is in the right place to obtain the perfect education. Training with Victor Valdes before the Spaniard joined Standard Liege on loan was a personal highlight and he regularly studies David De Gea. “Victor and I are almost friends now which I would have never have thought was possible two years ago! I learned from him every single day and he’s such a nice bloke to have to look up to. David is one of the best, if not the best, goalkeepers in the world and I go to as many games at Old Trafford as I can to watch him. I also get to watch him in training and it's fantastic to see what he puts in place when he's preparing for games.”


An excellent goalkeeper who is working on all aspects of his game, Henderson looks commanding when dealing with crosses and often manages to exert a vocal influence on his defenders. Although an outfield player in his youth, he enjoys “diving around in the mud in the wet and cold” and clearly made the right career choice. Particularly adept at launching attacks with long throws, he commented: “I watched a lot of clips of Peter Schmeichel on YouTube and thought throwing is a really good skill to have in your locker. It can be as effective as a big, long kick as it’s sharp and you can get on the break. I’ll keep working at it.”


His first appearance for United Reserves against Rochdale in the Lancashire Senior Cup back in September was one to savour. Warren Joyce's side won 3-2 and Henderson made a number of top-class saves to preserve the lead, with the pick of the bunch being an agile close-range stop to deny Joe Bunney and draw gasps from the crowd.


Despite the outstanding display against Rochdale, Henderson himself feels his finest showing came in a 1-0 win against Derby County at Under-18 level in February 2015. In a game best remembered for Oli Rathbone’s stupendous injury-time winner, the United keeper made a string of saves. “I felt we were struggling and under pressure at Derby but I helped hold the team together," he said.


As a schoolboy, Dean played county cricket and was an accomplished batsman and wicket-keeper. However, since making his way in football, he has understandably had no time to continue playing the other sport.

Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has been recalled from a loan spell at Stockport County following injuries to fellow shot-stoppers David De Gea and Sam Johnstone.

Henderson, who turns 19 next month, has been gaining first-team experience in the Conference North but could now be involved in United's senior squad for Monday's Emirates FA Cup tie at Shrewsbury Town.

The Reds are likely to need cover for Sergio Romero, who performed well during the 2-1 defeat to FC Midtjylland after De Gea hurt his knee in the warm-up and joined Johnstone on the lengthy list of Louis van Gaal's unavailable players.

Another goalkeeper, Joel Castro Pereira, is ineligible for Monday's match having already played in the FA Cup this season during his temporary spell at Rochdale while Victor Valdes is on loan at Standard Liege.

Sayangnya selama ini kiper utama United jarang yang berasal dari youngster academy. Lebih sering kiper utama dibeli dari klub lain. Semoga saja Dean Henderson bisa membuktikan bahwa dia layak mengawal gawang tim utama United di masa depan :)

Kemungkinan sih bakal jadi cadangan dulu jika Dean Henderson dipanggil ke tim utama United untuk ajang piala FA besok. Van Gaal tentunya tidak mau ambil resiko mengingat posisi dirinya yang tengah terancam di klub..

Dean Henderson was in dreamland in February when he was recalled from a loan spell at Stockport County in order to make the bench for United's FA Cup tie at Shrewsbury Town.

With Joel Castro Pereira cup-tied after participating in the competition during a stint at Rochdale, it opened the door for Henderson, who was only 18 at the time. For all the excitement, having met and talked to the young keeper, it is probably something he would have taken in his stride.

A confident, assured figure with the belief in his ability that is required to make it at the top level, Henderson has the character that suggests his competitive nature will take him a long way. Whether it's studying YouTube clips of Peter Schmeichel or scrutinising David De Gea in training, he appears to be obsessed with the art of goalkeeping.

It's often said to be a lonely position but there is a special bond among the goalies at any club. "I think we do always help each other off the pitch but, on the pitch, it's the most competitive place to be," he asserted. "I definitely need to keep on top of the gym work to be more powerful and have more speed. I need to maintain that to get to the top."

It all started at Carlisle United for Henderson when he switched from playing on the right wing or up front when an illness for the regular keeper in a schoolboy game at Blackpool presented an opening. "I went in net and saved a couple of penalties," he recalled. "The next thing they wanted me in sticks and I wasn't too happy but I started diving around in the mud, enjoyed it and went from there.

"I spoke with my mum and dad, and they were worried I'd lose any potential to be an outfield player but, personally, I liked diving in the wet and cold and just sliding around. I came to United when I was 14 years old and had a couple of trial games. [Then goalkeeping coach] Eric Steele brought me in and was very good with me.

"I was really nervous but excited at the same time, coming to one of the biggest clubs in the world and someone I'd supported. I signed in the summer. At first, being a northern lad, it's a bit isolated up there in Carlisle, I found it difficult being in a big city like Manchester on my own at 14 but I had good people around to support and help me along the way.

"People like Scott McTominay, Joe Riley and Oli Rathbone took me under their wing and helped me through the early months at the club. As you grow older, you become one of the regulars yourself to help other people and the new lads coming in."

Competition is always fierce for a goalkeeping spot - he was one of five to be named on the first-team bench last term with Sam Johnstone, Sergio Romero, De Gea and Pereira the others. Henderson made two appearances for Warren Joyce's Reserves side, both in the Lancashire Senior Cup, and was named captain for the win at Blackpool to reflect his outgoing personality. Always very vocal during games, he was the first choice in the UEFA Youth League but suffered an injury during the defeat to PSV Eindhoven in November that proved a real setback.

When regaining his fitness, he headed out to Stockport for experience and did well enough to have the deal extended, being voted Man of the Match in a 0-0 draw with Curzon Ashton. The recall from United came as a result of De Gea sustaining an injury before the Midtjylland tie in the Europa League tie and, although a remarkable debut never materialised, the shock development will have shown Henderson just how quickly opportunities can arise in the game.
The challenge now will be to force his way into Joyce's side on a regular basis, buoyed by the knowledge that he performed well in his Lancashire Cup outings - against Rochdale and Blackpool - making a number of fine stops. He was substitute on 11 occasions in the Under-21 league and, after displaying patience, will be determined to show he can step up in 2016/17, regardless of what the future holds.

Physically, he should become even more imposing, which will only help his cause. "Funnily enough, my Dad is about 6ft 4ins, my Mum is 6ft and my brother is a tall lad. So I was always confident I'd be tall enough. I've just got to 6ft 2ins but a few of my growth plates are still open so, hopefully, I'll keep going maybe another inch or so," he declared during our interview earlier in the season.

Like any youngster at Old Trafford, the teenager is fully aware how difficult it is to become a first-team regular - and even more so for a keeper. The last youth product to become the regular no.1 was Mark Bosnich and even he had to prove himself elsewhere at Aston Villa before returning to Manchester under the Bosman Ruling.

But Henderson is obviously willing to play the long game. "I’ve got the same ambitions as the boys at United, 100 per cent," he vowed. "With the goalkeeping situation, it’ll take a few more years. Obviously David is the best in the world, and at the moment I’m learning a lot from him."

Dean Henderson has signed for Grimsby Town on loan until January.

The Manchester United goalkeeper, who was named in the England Under-20 squad last week, will obtain valuable experience with the League Two newcomers after the Mariners gained promotion last term.

Henderson kept goal for United's Under-23 side in the Premier League 2 clash at Southampton recently but has been allowed to develop his game away from Manchester.

Following a loan stint at Stockport County, the 19-year-old was recalled in order to be on the bench for the FA Cup tie at Shrewsbury Town during Louis van Gaal's time in charge.

Mungkin butuh waktu dan perjuangan berat bagi Dean Henderson untuk dapat menjadi kiper utama United, terlebih De Gea juga masih muda namun memiliki banyak pengalaman. Jalan terbaik bagi Dean Henderson adalah tampil sebaik mungkin selama masa peminjamannya. Siapa tahu Mourinho menariknya kembali untuk menjadi kiper di ajang Piala Liga atau Piala FA :)

Young Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has extended his loan deal at Grimsby Town until the end of January.

The goalkeeper joined the Mariners on an initial deal lasting until January and made his full professional debut against Accrington Stanley on Boxing Day.

The Reds stopper, who was named in the England Under-20 squad back in August, will continue his spell with the League Two newcomers after the Mariners gained promotion last term.

Dean Henderson has been recalled from his loan spell at Grimsby Town due to Manchester United's third-choice goalkeeper Joel Pereira suffering an injury.

Henderson, 19, is eligible to be included in Jose Mourinho's match squad for Sunday's Premier League match at Leicester City if required. The Cumbria-born shot-stopper has not previously played for the first team with the Reds but he has made seven senior appearances for Grimsby in League Two this season, impressively keeping clean sheets in three of his last four outings in January.

The Mariners initially signed Henderson on 31 August in a loan deal lasting until January and he made his full professional debut in the 2-0 home win over Accrington Stanley on Boxing Day.

Such was his impact that Grimsby asked to keep Henderson at Blundell Park until 6 May but although that was agreed on 25 January, today's recall has brought his loan extension to an abrupt end.

Wah Dean Henderson dipinjamkan terus nih :)



Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has joined League One side Shrewsbury Town on loan for the 2017/18 season.

Henderson, who was part of the England squad that won the Under-20 World Cup in the summer, has been a regular for United’s Reserves and was on the first-team bench for the Emirates FA Cup win at Blackburn Rovers in February.

The 20-year-old also spent time on loan at Grimsby Town last season, keeping four clean sheets in seven League Two appearances before being recalled by the Reds after Joel Pereira suffered an injury.

Henderson will link up with his new side on Tuesday ahead of their pre-season campaign, which includes fixtures against Aston Villa, Cardiff City and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

“I’m delighted to come here,” the Cumbria-born stopper told Shewsbury’s official website. “I could have gone to a lot of League Two clubs this year, but I had to show that development and go into the next league.

“I will be working hard every day in training and hopefully performing well in the games before the season starts. I’ve left no stones unturned, so I’m ready.”

Shrews boss Paul Hurst brought Henderson to Grimsby last August, though all of the youngster’s appearances came after the manager had moved to Shrewsbury.

“He’s a keeper with a big future in front of him and he will be looking to take this opportunity to really kick on and progress his career,” Hurst said.

“He kicks the ball extremely well. He’s probably one of the most confident characters I have met, he will come for crosses and he likes to be proactive in terms of his approach to his goalkeeping.

“He did well at Grimsby last season after I’d left and he got himself in the team. We think he’s got a big future and hopefully he can show that with us.”

Dean Henderson is a confident young man and, last season, he backed that self-belief up with a remarkable season at Shrewsbury Town.

As loan moves go, this one was a real success story. He helped the unfancied Shrews slug it out towards the top of the League One table all year, played twice at Wembley and was named in the PFA Team of the Year. More than this, he transmitted his passion to the supporters and emerged as a real fans' favourite. Not bad for a 21-year-old in a position usually filled by somebody with far more experience.

And that has been the name of the game for Henderson, who has also had spells with Stockport County and Grimsby Town. Experience. Learning his trade on the job to speed up his development and move him closer to fulfilling his lofty long-term ambitions - keeping goal for Manchester United and England.

It would be easy to dismiss such aspirations but he is making steps in the right direction. The new contract, signed in front of his family at Old Trafford, is proof of the regard in which he is held at the club and reward for his form. United are blessed with a number of top-class keepers, including the very best in the world, but the youngster should be applauded for aiming for the stars.

He's also played at all the age levels with his country, being part of the squad that won the Under-20 World Cup, and made his Under-21 debut against Romania earlier this year. “One more step to go,” he tells MUTV. “The senior team. I’m eyeing that up in the next couple of years and that’s what I’m working towards. It’s an honour to represent your country. With the [Under-20] World Cup success we had last year, it makes you hungrier for more, to go on to compete to win the real thing and the Euros. They are great competitions to go on and really do your country proud. I’ll be looking at that in the coming years and see how far I can go.”

One former England no.1 has been very supportive of his fellow keeper's career as he has shared experience of representing Shrewsbury. Joe Hart, who spent last term at West Ham United, came up against his former club in the Emirates FA Cup and has kept in touch with Henderson, offering advice and the benefit of his experience.

“It’s weird, actually,” admits Dean. “Joe was always my idol growing up, being England’s no.1, and I always admired him. To play against him this year at his hometown club, was really an honour for myself. We had a good few words afterwards and exchanged numbers. He keeps in touch with me now and gives me good advice when I need it. He’s been a real good role model for me over the last six months and really given me some good advice over what to do, where to go and to keep playing games to get there eventually, because he says your talent will shine through.

”It was funny [how the friendship started]. It was the first international break after the summer and he was like: ‘You’re the one who went to Shrewsbury, Deano, aren’t you?’ We got chatting about a few places, where he hangs out in Shrewsbury, and he was telling me places to go to eat and things like that. It was where the connection started and then, obviously, we drew them in the FA Cup. It’s been good to get to know him over the last year and he’s been a really big help for me.“

Henderson completely embraced the move to Shrewsbury and has been a firm believer that the loan system is the best route to developing between the posts.

“Look, I stand by that,” he asserts. “I love going out on loan and playing games, playing in those pressure moments. We had a couple of trips to Wembley this year with Shrewsbury and, to feel the energy around the place and to get that as a young lad, I feel it’s important to go on to reach the next level. You need to go and play games to be put in those scenarios in order to come out better.

”I’m obviously a passionate lad and that’s well known around this club. So I wear my heart on my sleeve and give it everything I’ve got for everyone. I think that’s how it should be. They’ve given me an opportunity and a platform to go on and show what I can do so it’s only right that you give that back with good performances and a bit of passion.

“It’s no secret we were favourites to go down. We had one of the lowest budgets in the league but for the lads to come together and have the season we did, to take Rotherham to extra-time in the final, we were also victims of our own success. We did well in the FA Cup and obviously the Checkatrade Trophy so we played a lot of games. The lads were really tired on the day. Look, another day, it could have gone our way but I’m sure they will rebuild and go again to hopefully get promoted next season.”

The blond keeper strikes an imposing figure; he looks bigger and stronger than the last time we spoke before he headed away from the Aon Training Complex. When pressed on what he learned in League One, he says: “How to grow up and be a man, for a start.” It has been an educational process and, of course, challenges along the way but 'Deano' understands that. Senior players at Shrewsbury guided him through the long, hard season and offered some pointers. “I take it on the chin and learn from things,” he says. “Obviously, I’m not perfect. I’m always willing to learn and take everything in to go onto the next level.”

There aren't too many keepers of his age being afforded so much responsibility and he has thrived on the pressure. Like Hart, he appears a strong character and a tough mentality is probably essential for any goalie. “It’s well known in football that keepers always stick together through thick and thin,” he adds. “It can be a lonely place at times but also a good place.”

Finally, what about that self-confidence, an attitude that has already taken him a long way since the day he was asked to go in goal in his native Cumbria as a schoolboy and actually began to enjoy the thrill of “diving around in the mud”. For Dean, it's an essential tool if he is to reach his ultimate goal, no matter what is agreed for his career plan.

Appreciating the enormity of his surroundings, he says: “Looking at the Stretford End there, it’s 76,000 people in the ground. If you’re not confident, you know what’s going to happen – you’re going to make lots of mistakes. You have to stand on your own two feet and have that confidence, especially to play for a club like this and to go on and win titles, which is my main aim for the future.”

Last year, the keeper aced that loan spell in League One. What's next for Dean Henderson?

Baru perpanjang kontrak langsung dipinjamkan :D


Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has completed a season-long loan move to Championship side Sheffield United.

The highly rated England Under-21 international will spend the 2018/19 campaign with the Blades, who finished 10th in their first season back in the second tier last term.

Henderson sees his long-term future with the Reds, having signed a new contract with the club last week that will run until at least June 2020, with the option for a further year.

However, such is the fierce competition for places in the goalkeeping department at all levels at United, he makes the move to Bramall Lane in search of more regular first-team football on the back of a successful loan spell at Shrewsbury Town in 2017/18.

The 21-year-old, who has also been on loan at Stockport County and Grimsby Town in his career, was named in the PFA League One Team of the Season by his peers after helping the Shrews reach the play-off final.

Despite performing superbly at Wembley with a string of fine stops, including an early penalty save, Henderson couldn’t prevent the Shropshire outfit from losing 2-1 to Rotherham United after extra time.


In an interview with ManUtd.com’s Adam Marshall, Henderson expressed his excitement to get started with the Blades and is looking to make an impact at what he feels is a huge club in the Championship. “I can’t wait to go there to build on the last season I had at Shrewsbury,” said Dean.

“It’s in the division above and showing that progression by going on to the next bigger stage, in front of 30,000 passionate fans at Bramall Lane. I can’t wait to go there and perform and connect with them. I’m sure it will be a successful season.

“Sheffield United are a massive club and it’s a massive city for football. They’ve got that rivalry with Sheffield Wednesday and I’m looking forward to those games coming up as well. I can’t wait to get there and push up the division.”


Henderson follows in the footsteps of Joe Riley and James Wilson, who have previously had temporary stints at Sheffield United on loan from the Reds.

The keeper revealed that he spoke to Riley, who left United to join Bradford City last month, before agreeing his switch to the Blades and was full of praise for their manager Chris Wilder.

“Funnily enough I spoke to Joe last night about the manager,” Dean added. “He spoke really highly of him and, speaking to Chris Wilder, he has come across as really delighted to have me. It was a no-brainer and it gives me the platform to go there, play games and, hopefully, be a key part of the success there next season.

“I like the fact he’s a Sheffield lad and a Sheffield United fan. He is really passionate about where he wants the club to go and he wants hungry, ambitious young players to help him do that. It’s good as I’m an ambitious lad and, hopefully, we’ll hit it off well.”


After earning plenty of plaudits for his impressive campaign at Shrewsbury, in which he kept 19 clean sheets in 48 games in all competitions, there was plenty of competition to secure Henderson’s services.

However, the keeper is convinced that he has made the right choice in joining the Blades, who flirted with the play-off places last season before securing a top-half finish in their first campaign back in the Championship after six years in League One.

“There were a hell of a lot of loan clubs and I’m thankful to all of them for coming in,” Dean added.

“But I chose Sheffield United and a manager who has shown trust in me, plus a goalkeeping coach here in Wardy [Darren Ward], and I’m looking forward to learning and hopefully getting better and better.” Everyone at the club wishes Dean well during his time at Sheffield United.

It has been some season for Dean Henderson and the Manchester United keeper is striving for more success when representing England at the Under-21 European Championship finals.

The 22-year-old was a key figure as Sheffield United won promotion to the Premier League, earning the Golden Glove award for the most clean sheets in the division. It was another superb loan spell for the Academy graduate, who was with Shrewsbury Town alongside Reds new boy Daniel James in 2017.

He has been handed the no.1 jersey by coach Aidy Boothroyd for the tournament, which takes place in Italy and San Marino, ahead of fellow stoppers Angus Gunn of Southampton and Newcastle United's Freddie Woodman.

Henderson, who lifted the Under-20 World Cup with his country in 2017, cannot wait for the finals to start, with the opening game taking place on Sunday when Poland face Belgium.

The chance to win another trophy and push his way towards Gareth Southgate's senior squad is one he is determined to take.

“That’s what I’ve been working for my whole life,” the Whitehaven-born youngster told the Cumbrian News & Star.

“It’s no secret I want to play for Man United and England. I’ve just got to keep working hard, stay grounded, keep setting my goals, and there’s no reason it can’t happen.”

England are in a group containing France, Romania and Croatia.

“It’s a really proud moment when you pull the shirt on and sing the national anthem,” Henderson added. ”You get those goosebumps. You can’t take it for granted.

“England have been successful through every age group so it’s going to be outstanding to go out there and try to win another trophy. We’ve got the capabilities, so we have to go out and play with no fear.”

Manchester United and Dean Henderson 'keen to sort out new contract before keeper returns to Premier League new boys Sheffield United on loan this season'

* Manchester United are set to 'offer goalkeeper Dean Henderson a new contract'
* The 22-year-old will then return to Sheffield United on loan for the new season
* Henderson has impressed for the Blades and on international duty with England
* He saved a penalty during the Young Lions 2-1 defeat by France on Tuesday

Manchester United will reportedly offer England Under 21 international Dean Henderson a new contract before he is returned to newly promoted Sheffield United on loan.

The 22-year-old goalkeeper played an integral role during the Blades promotion push last season and has continued his fine form into this summer's Under 21 European Championships.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is already faced with the prospect of trying to tie down No 1 shot stopper David de Gea to a contract beyond the 12 months left on his present deal, but he is keen to ensure the club do not lose a grip of Henderson.

The Mirror report that the Red Devils will sort out Henderson's contract situation and offer him a new deal before he returns to Yorkshire for the new Premier League season.

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder expressed his delight that the English prospect will be returning to Bramall Lane.

He told the Mirror: 'Dean made it clear to us that he has a very strong interest in coming back to Bramall Lane, and Manchester United are happy to go along with that.

'He wants his United contract sorted out first of all but, in terms of putting another temporary deal in place, I think we're in a good place with that one.

'United are pleased with what happened when he came here, with the way his game developed and the way he progressed over the course of the year.

'He's rated very highly at Old Trafford and you can understand why. Dean was outstanding for us last season and being able to bring him back again for another year would be brilliant.'

Manchester United will 'offer Dean Henderson a new deal' before returning to Sheffield United. Henderson played a key role during Sheffield United's promotion campaign last season

Henderson is Aidy Boothroyd's first-choice goalkeeper in Italy at the European Championships and he impressed in the Young Lions opening defeat by France.

He saved a penalty by Lyon forward Moussa Dembele in the first half, before England took a deserved lead through Phil Foden.

Henderson saw another spot-kick crash against his goal-post, while there was little he could do to prevent France's late comeback as Jonathan Ikone and and an Aaron Wan-Bissaka own goal resulted in a costly defeat.

Dean Henderson 'demands £75,000 a-week' to sign new Manchester United contract as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer unveils new goalkeeper coach

* Dean Henderson is reportedly eyeing a new deal that would triple his wages
* England Under 21 goalkeeper made a howler in defeat by Romania on Friday
* He is confident that his wish to treble his wages will be met at Old Trafford

Dean Henderson has reportedly demanded an eye-watering new £75,000-a-week deal at Manchester United.

The England Under 21 goalkeeper is said to be confident that his wish to treble his wages will be met.

Henderson's howler on Friday night saw the Under 21s dumped out of the European Championship in a 4-2 defeat by Romania.

Dean Henderson has reportedly demanded a new £75,000-a-week deal at Manchester United

And now he wants a sign of commitment from United, report The Sun.

Henderson joined Old Trafford from Carlisle United eight years ago and is seen by Gareth Southgate as a potential rival for Jordan Pickford's No 1 shirt.

He is likely to remain on loan at Sheffield United this season after helping the Blades return to the Premier League.

Henderson has a year left on his current £25,000 per week deal and United have a further 12 – month option.

It comes after United confirmed the return of goalkeeper coach Richard Hartis.

Hartis worked with the academy and was also part of Sir Alex Ferguson's backroom team for decade.

He returns as Senior Goalkeeping Coach - but Emilio Alvarez, who was brought in by former boss Jose Mourinho, will remain.

'Richard is a fantastic goalkeeping coach and has a proven track record of developing goalkeepers for winning teams,' Solskjaer said.

* Henderson featured in each of the Blades 46 Championship matches last season

Sheffield United have announced the return of Dean Henderson on loan from Manchester United after the 22-year-old signed a new three-year deal at Old Trafford.

Henderson was a key figure during the Blades promotion campaign last season, appearing in each of their 46 Championship matches.

The highly rated England Under-21 international, who has been with United since the age of 14, signed a new deal until 2022, with the option of a further year.

Henderson said: 'The club has been amazing in designing an individual pathway to aid my development which will enable me to reach my potential and perform at the highest level possible.

'Signing this contract is such a proud moment for myself and my family; I've worked so hard to reach this point and I want to do everything I can to repay the faith the club has shown in me.

'I am looking forward to being back at Bramall Lane, the opportunity to be reunited with the coaches and play in front of the amazing fans again is one that I am relishing. I cannot wait to enjoy a full season of Premier League football which I know will be hugely beneficial for my career.'

The Blades confirmed Henderson's return on Twitter, shortly after announcing the signing of Ben Osborn from Nottingham Forest.

Dean Henderson: 'Kiper' MU yang Hadiahi Liverpool Tiga Poin
Mohammad Resha Pratama - detikSport


Liverpool mengalahkan Sheffield United berkat blunder kiper Dean Henderson. Ironisnya, Henderson adalah kiper pinjaman dari Manchester United.

Melawat ke Bramall Lane pada pekan ketujuh Premier League, Sabtu (28/9/2019) malam WIB, Liverpool yang butuh tiga poin bermain dominan sejak menit pertama. Namun, dominasi itu tak berujung lahirnya peluang atau gol.

Tak cuma karena ketatnya barisan belakang Sheffield, performa Henderson di bawah mistar Sheffield mampu mementahkan peluang yang ada. Sayangnya, kukuhnya pertahanan Sheffield harus jebol juga pada menit ke-70.

Diawali sapuan yang tak sempurna, bola jatuh di kaki Gini Wijnaldum yang berada di depan kotak penalti. Dia langsung melepaskan sepakan voli yang sebenarnya tidak begitui kencang dan bisa diamainkan Henderson.

Namun, nasib berkata lain, bola malah terlepas dari tangkapan Henderson dan bergulir pelan ke gawang. Henderson yang coba meraihnya malah gagal dan keunggulan Liverpool 1-0 bertahan hingga laga tuntas.


Liverpool masih menjaga kesempurnaannya hingga pekan ketujuh. Kemenangan ini bisa dibilang ironi untuk Henderson, karena dia membantu klub rivalnya meraih poin penuh.

Seperti diketahui, Henderson adalah kiper pinjaman Setan Merah dalam dua tahun terakhir dan belum pernah bermain di tim senior meski berasal dari akademi. Pemuda 22 tahun itu juga berperan besar mengantarkan Sheffield promosi ke Premier League.

"Jika dia ingin jadi pesepakbola profesional, hal-hal seperti ini bakal terjadi," ujar manajer Sheffield, Chris Wilder, di situs resmi klub.

"Tapi jika dia ingin bermain untuk tim-tim top, bermain untuk timnas Inggris, maka dia harus tampil lebih baik," sambungnya.

"Dia harus lebih berkonsentrasi. Hari yang mengecewakan untuknya. Saya tidak mau menghiburnya. Jelas dia harus tampil lebih baik."

Musim memang masih panjang, Liverpool bisa saja gagal juara seperti halnya musim lalu. Tapi, jika takdir menghendaki Liverpool juara Liga Inggris, maka Henderson sebagai pemain MU punya andil untuk itu.

Manchester United set to spark £20m bidding war for young keeper Dean Henderson after tying David de Gea to a new long-term contract

* Manchester United agreed a contract extension with keeper David de Gea
* That means Dean Henderson could leave next summer for a fee of £20million
* Keeper is on loan at Sheffield United and made an error in defeat by Liverpool

Manchester United are ready to start a bidding war for young keeper Dean Henderson and hope he will fetch up to £20million, according to The Sun.

The 22-year-old has impressed on loan at Sheffield United, having helped the Blades to Championship promotion last season.

However, while he hopes to become Manchester United No 1, a recent long-term extension handed to David de Gea means he may be forced to go elsewhere for first-team football.

Dean Henderson could be heading out of the door at Old Trafford for a fee of £20million

Henderson is determined to become a Premier League regular and represent England, but may opt to do that away from his boyhood club.

He did, however, commit a costly error for Sheffield United in defeat by Liverpool, letting Gerginio Wijnaldum's innocuous volley slip through his legs for the only goal of the game.

In the aftermath, boss Chris Wilder refused to defend his charge, saying: 'I'm not bothered how people feel. This is a real tough sport. I'm certainly not going to pt my arm around him and rub his head.

'We set a high bar. It always amazes me when pundits talk about not criticising players in the press.

'This game has been beamed around the world. There's no hiding place.'


tanda tangan De Gea sudah diamankan, jasa Henderson, Peirera, Johnstone kayaknya 'sudah tidak diperlukan' mengingatkan kiper termasuk pemain 'yg jarang cedera', apalagi disana masih ada Romero & Grant, kayakny posisi kiper sudah cukup aman

‘He has all the physical attributes you need… plus that cockiness and confidence': Ex-Man United coach Eric Steele reveals Dean Henderson is ready to challenge David de Gea for No 1 spot after Sheffield United loan

* The 22-year-old shot stopper is enjoying his second spell on loan at Bramall lane
* Dean Henderson's form has even earned him a call up from Gareth Southgate
* Ex Manchester United goalkeeping coach Eric Steele has lauded his abilities

Former Manchester United goalkeeping coach Eric Steele has tipped Sheffield United loanee Dean Henderson to challenge for the number one spot at Old Trafford.

The 22-year-old was pivotal in helping the Blades gain promotion from the Championship last season and has kept three clean sheets this year - earning himself an England call up.

And Steele, who left United after David Moyes took over as manager in 2013, thinks the youngster has what it takes to succeed at one of the world's biggest clubs.

Eric Steele has tipped Sheffield United's Dean Henderson to challenge de Gea at Old Trafford. Henderson's form has even earned him a call up from Gareth Southgate to the England squad

'He has all the physical attributes you need,' Steele told The Athletic. 'Plus that cockiness and confidence about him. He sees himself as the biggest challenger to David De Gea at Manchester United and I love that. Even though he is not at the club right now.

'I have no problems with that. He is doing the right thing and getting experience at a good club. He is still a young keeper. Peter Schmeichel didn't come to Old Trafford until he was 28. David De Gea was the exception at 19 or 20. I have said this to Dean privately. He is still a young keeper.'

Henderson's form for Chris Wilder's side saw him called up for international duty, earning a spot in Gareth Southgate's England squad for the ongoing Euro 2020 qualifiers, following the withdrawal of Tom Heaton due to injury.

The Whitehaven-born star was also loaned to Sheffield United last season from Old Trafford, keeping 21 clean sheets in 46 games.

Steele said Henderson knows his parent club are keeping an eye on him.

'Knowing Dean as I do, what he will be thinking is, 'Richard Hartis (Manchester United's senior goalkeeping coach) and Ole Gunnar (Solskjaer), please keep sending your scouts to Sheffield United.

'He knows he is being watched,' the 65-year-old said.

United's current number one David de Gea has performed under-par in his side's torrid start to the Premier League season, keeping just two clean sheets in eight games.

However, the Spaniard signed a new four-year deal last month and United also have strong understudies in Argentina keeper Sergio Romero and seasoned veteran Lee Grant, but Steele insists Henderson 'knows what is required'.

'But Richard Hartis will be asking, 'Who is going to challenge De Gea?' I am sure Dean will be thinking he can be the number one at Manchester United,' he added.

Henderson previously earned plaudits on loan at Stockport, Grimsby and Shrewsbury and this season has a save rate of 76.67%, higher than De Gea.

It was a great weekend for three of Manchester United’s on-loan players, as their sides recorded important wins in their various leagues.

Dean Henderson kept a fifth clean sheet of the season, as Sheffield United dispatched Burnley 3-0 to move up to sixth place in the Premier League table.

The Blades struck three times in the first half at Bramall Lane to blow Sean Dyche’s side away, with John Lundstram netting a brace and John Fleck scoring his first top-flight goal.

In Italy, Chris Smalling’s Roma powered to a third consecutive win in Serie A, with goals from Nicolo Zaniolo and Jordan Veretout helping the Giallorossi to a 2-1 home victory over Napoli.

The centre-back played the full 90 minutes, with his personal highlight being an acrobatic goalline clearance to keep out Di Lorenzo's header from a free-kick when the score was still 1-0. Although Arkadiusz Milik did eventually pull one back for Napoli with 20 minutes to play, the capital club held out and are now third in Serie A.

In League Two, George Tanner's Morecambe are still occupying the only relegation place but secured an important 1-0 win at home to Leyton Orient, thanks to A-Jay Leitch-Smith's 74th-minute goal.

The United right-back helped The Shrimps to keep their third clean sheet of the campaign and they are now level on points with Stevenage in 23rd place.

Elsewhere in the Football League, Kieran O’Hara was in goal as Burton Albion battled to a 2-2 draw at Doncaster Rovers. Goals from David Templeton and Lucas Akins twice put the Brewers in front, but the home side fought back to secure a point that leaves Burton 13th in League One, albeit with games in hand on many of the teams above them.

Ethan Hamilton missed Southend’s 1-0 defeat at Sunderland through suspension, while Cameron Borthwick-Jackson was an unused substitute in Tranmere’s 3-1 win at MK Dons.

In Scotland, there was heartbreak for Joel Castro Pereira as his Hearts side were beaten 3-0 by Rangers in the Betfred Cup semi-final. Filip Helander finished smartly past Pereira to give the Gers a half-time lead, before Alfredo Morelos capped off the win with a second-half double.

Meanwhile, in Norway, Aidan Barlow scored for Tromso in their 3-2 loss at Sarpsborg.

Finally, Alex Fotijcek was in goal as non-league Stalybridge Celtic were defeated 1-0 at Radcliffe Borough.

* No replacements are planned for the former Everton youngster however

Uncapped goalkeeper Dean Henderson has been called into the England squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Montenegro and Kosovo, with injured pair Tom Heaton and Ross Barkley dropping out.

Uncapped Sheffield United 'keeper Dean Henderson has been called into the England squad. Henderson will come in for Aston Villa goalkeeper Tom Heaton who has picked up an injury

Heaton missed Sunday's 2-1 defeat at Wolves after injuring his calf in training while Barkley has sat out Chelsea's last six games.

An FA statement read: 'Ross Barkley and Tom Heaton have been ruled out of England's forthcoming UEFA EURO 2020 qualifiers through injury.

'Goalkeeper Dean Henderson has been added to Gareth Southgate's squad in place of Aston Villa's Heaton but no replacements are planned for Chelsea's Barkley.

'Henderson will arrive at St George's Park on Monday as England's now 26-man squad begin preparations for their final fixtures of 2019.'

Henderson has helped the promoted Blades to fifth in the Premier League after Saturday's 1-1 draw at Tottenham.

The 22-year-old also replaced Heaton in last month's squad after the Villa man pulled out.

England host Montenegro at Wembley on Thursday, where a win would book their spot at next summer's tournament.

Southgate's men then go to Kosovo for their final Group A match on Sunday.

* On-loan keeper from Manchester United also made a series of important stops
* Blades have already opened talks with United to take Henderson for third season
* He helped the club win promotion from the Championship last season
* And Henderson has been excellent as they've defied odds in the top flight

Sheffield United have already opened negotiations with Manchester United to take goalkeeper Dean Henderson on loan for a third time.

Henderson continues to impress as Sheffield United, promoted into the Premier League last season, defy all expectations to sit seventh in the table.

The 22-year-old was excellent again in Tuesday night's 1-0 defeat to Manchester City, saving a first-half penalty from Gabriel Jesus and making several other important saves.

United manager Chris Wilder described Henderson's performance as 'outstanding' and revealed that efforts to keep him for a third season have already started.

Henderson was an ever-present in the Championship as the Blades won promotion during his first season on loan from United in 2018-19.

He has played 23 of United's 24 games in the Premier League this season, the one exception being the visit of his parent club, and has kept eight clean sheets.

Henderson declared himself ready to play for Manchester United's first team last summer but is unlikely to dislodge David de Gea so long as the Spaniard is at Old Trafford.

However, his form for Sheffield United this season has put him in contention for a maiden England cap after he was called up in October to replace the injured Tom Heaton.

'He wants to play first-team football,' Wilder said on Tuesday night. 'Maybe I shouldn't be saying this, but I'm not so sure he'll play back-up to anybody. Maybe he'll come out and say it.

'If there's a decision for Manchester United, for him to come out to us for another year, we'll gladly take that up.

'We've already started talking with them but obviously he's their player.

'That decision on behalf of Manchester United and the player, but he's been outstanding for us.'

'I have always had that dream': Dean Henderson sets sights on ousting David de Gea as Manchester United's long-term No 1

* The Sheffield United shot-stopper is currently on loan from the Red Devils
* Dean Henderson's fine form could see him replace David de Gea at Man United
* The 22-year-old has won plenty of plaudits for his performances this campaign
* Henderson has also been tipped to start for England in this summer's Euro 2020

Dean Henderson is hoping to oust David de Gea as Manchester United's No 1 goalkeeper.

The Sheffield United shot-stopper is currently on loan from the Red Devils.

His fine form has sparked a debate over whether he should be ahead of De Gea in the pecking order at Old Trafford.

Henderson told the Kelly and Wrighty show: 'The big dream is to play for Manchester United one day.

'I've always had that dream throughout my life so until that's accomplished I'll never think I've made it.

'Even if I play for them once I won't think I've made it. I need to play for them 500 times, 300 times, whatever it is, then you can turnaround at the end of your career and say, "I made it, I did what I set out to do".'

Paris Saint-Germain plotting shock summer move for Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson as he shines on loan at Sheffield United

* Paris Saint-Germain have entered the race to sign Dean Henderson this summer
* The Manchester United keeper has impressed during his loan at Sheffield United
* Chelsea, Sheffield United and Tottenham are also interested in the 22-year-old
* United view him as a future No 1 with David de Gea currently standing in his way

Paris Saint-Germain are planning a summer approach for Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson.

French giants PSG have joined Chelsea, Tottenham and Sheffield United in keeping a close eye on United's intentions for Henderson beyond this season.

The mounting interest in the 22-year-old has added to the Old Trafford club's dilemma.

Henderson has pushed his claims for a return to United, who view him as a future No 1, as well as a place in England's Euro 2020 squad during an impressive second season-long loan at Sheffield United.

But standing in his way is United's current first choice goalkeeper David De Gea who signed a new contract last summer that will run until 2023 at least.

His suitors are now circling to see if they can take advantage of the situation and prise him away from his boyhood club. PSG have identified Henderson as they look to evolve their squad by bringing in younger players.

Paris Saint-Germain are keen to sign Manchester United keeper Dean Henderson this summer. Henderson's impressed on loan at Sheffield United and has drawn interest from several clubs. Manchester United view him as a future No 1 with David de Gea currently standing in his way

Chelsea want a new challenger for their No 1 position admit doubts over Kepa Arrizabalaga, a world record £72m signing in 2018, who has struggled to convince at Stamford Bridge and has been dropped for their last two games.

Spurs, meanwhile, are also preparing for changes in their goalkeeping department this summer. They are currently planning to bring in a new back-up keeper with Michel Vorm due to leave when his short-term deal expires at the end of the season.

Though with captain Hugo Lloris aged 33 Henderson would represent a long-term successor. Sheffield United boss, Chris Wilder, meanwhile, has been open about his hopes of re-signing Henderson for another campaign next season.

Dean Henderson promises Sheffield United loan return if he is not guaranteed No 1 spot at Manchester United as Englishman makes strong case to start at Euros

* Dean Henderson has told team-mates he will be back on loan next season
* The Blades goalkeeper wants a guaranteed starting spot at Manchester United
* Henderson is the league's in-form keeper and is making his case for the Euros
* Jordan Pickford is England No 1 but Henderson's form cannot go unnoticed

Dean Henderson has told his Sheffield United team-mates he will be back on loan at the club next season if he is not guaranteed a starting role at Manchester United.

To that end, his parent club have a big decision to make this summer. The likelihood is that David de Gea, having signed a new contract in September, will remain at Old Trafford and retain his No.1 jersey.

Real Madrid, however, have again been linked with a summer move for the Spaniard, whose reliability continues to be questioned.

Dean Henderson will return to Sheffield United on loan if he is not handed Man United No 1 role

That is one criticism you cannot aim at Henderson. He is the Premier League's outstanding goalkeeper on current form and, by the time he returns to United in May, is almost certain to be an England international.

It would be a bold move, but cashing in on De Gea and installing Henderson as first choice would generate funds for investment elsewhere.

But forget the monetary incentive - there is every chance Henderson will emerge as a better goalkeeper than De Gea over the course of the next 12 months anyway.

Henderson is the Premier League's in-form goalkeeper with a host of standout performances. The Englishman has flourished with the Blades but wants guarantees over his future

Billy Sharp - match-winner against Norwich on Saturday - clearly rates his 22-year-old team-mate.

'I'm certain he'll be England's number one soon,' said Sharp. 'He has to be with his performances - and he wants to be as well.'

Of Henderson's future, Sharp said: 'We're not in his ear about it, we don't need to be.

'He wants to come back. He wants to play for Man United, obviously - he's not going to lie - but if he can't do that he wants to play for Sheffield United.'

Henderson made a treble save late on against Norwich to protect three points and his 10th clean sheet of the season.

Like all of the best goalkeepers, he boasts an unashamed belief in his own ability.

'He's a confident boy and he's not shy, but he backs it up,' said Blades boss Chris Wilder.

'He has a huge desire to take his game to the very top. He is doing the absolute maximum to be the best he possibly can.'

Which United it is who benefit from that forecast improvement next season remains to be seen.

Selama masih ada De Gea di United, peluang bagi Den Henderson mungkin tidak berbeda jauh dengan Lee Grant yang sulit menembus tim utama meskipun hanya sebatas kiper kedua sekalipun.. Semangat Dean Henderson !

MU Takkan Jual Dean Henderson Musim Depan
Adhi Prasetya - detikSport


Manchester - Dean Henderson disiapkan menjadi kiper masa depan Manchester United. Kubu Setan Merah pun enggan menjualnya pada musim panas mendatang.

Kiper 23 tahun itu tengah menjalani masa peminjaman bersama Sheffield United. Di musim perdananya merasakan kerasnya Premier League, Henderson justru tampil cemerlang.

Sebanyak 10 cleansheets berhasil diciptakan, setara dengan kiper Liverpool, Alisson Becker dan hanya kalah dari Nick Pope (Burnley) yang membuat 11 cleansheets.

Berstatus tim promosi, Sheffield dibawanya menduduki peringkat ketujuh klasemen sementara Liga Inggris. Ia juga sudah mendapat panggilan dari Timnas Inggris, meski belum mendapat kesempatan turun.

Penampilannya itu membuat sejumlah klub besar tertarik pada Henderson. Chelsea dan Paris Saint-Germain disebut-sebut meminatinya.

Dilaporkan ESPN, saat ini Henderson tak mau pulang ke MU meski masih memiliki kontrak hingga 2022. Ia enggan menjadi cadangan David De Gea, yang disebut-sebut masih dipercaya Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sebagai kiper utama MU untuk musim depan.

Meski demikian, MU tak mau melego Henderson karena ingin menggunakan jasanya sebagai bagian rencana jangka panjang MU. Oleh sebab itu, mereka lebih memilih opsi meminjamkannya kembali pada musim depan, entah tetap di Sheffield ataupun ke klub lain.

Jika penampilannya terus membaik, kemungkinan besar MU akan mengajukan kontrak baru agar ia tak dibajak klub lain.

Manchester United yet to decide Dean Henderson future

Keeper's loan at Bramall Lane ends on June 30


Manchester United are yet to decide if they will allow England prospect Dean Henderson to extend his loan spell at Sheffield United.

In a scenario which looked impossible at the start of the season, both Uniteds are rivals in the race for a Champions League spot and a potential £60m prize pot.

Henderson has enjoyed a magnificent season, keeping 10 clean sheets and earning a call-up to Gareth Southgate's full England squad.

With discussions continuing over a return to Premier League action next month, officials at Bramall Lane are keen to learn if Henderson's year-long loan can be extended beyond June 30 when it runs out.

Across the Pennines, Manchester United have stalled on a decision to date, until a revised calendar of fixtures is agreed.

With so much at stake, pressure may mount on executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to stop such a pivotal member of the Blades squad from staying longer than has been agreed.

According to The Sun, Premier League shareholders discussed the potential of extending loans beyond June at their meeting last Friday, insisting a player and both clubs involved would have to be in agreement before any loan could be extended.

If games recommence in mid-June, the 23-year old could potentially play around half of the Blades' league games before his loan ended. One game, however, he will definitely miss is the Blades' trip to Old Trafford - for which he is ineligible.

Chris Wilder's men are one of four teams with 10 league games left to play - their fixture against Aston Villa was postponed due to their appearance in the Carabao Cup final.

The Blades could also have to factor in the potential of a continued cup run, starting with a home quarter-final tie against Arsenal.

Sheffield United midfielder John Fleck has backed team-mate Henderson for the very top, insisting the on-loan Manchester United goalkeeper has what it takes to fulfil his dream of becoming No. 1 for club and country.

"He's been amazing and he's still a young boy," Fleck said, in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports' Kris Boyd.

"He's kept clean sheets, made some massive saves for us, kept us in games at times. I'm sure he's going to have a massive career ahead of him.

"He'll quite openly tell you he wants to be Manchester United's No. 1 and England's No. 1 as quick as possible. I don't think, personally, he's too far away from that now.

"Goalkeepers are a bit crazy - he's a bit mad at times! But he's got that big personality.

"When he's maybe made a mistake and the manager has criticised him, he's bounced back straight away. That's just the personality he's got and I'm sure that's what will get him to the top."

Blades boss Chris Wilder raised some eyebrows when he publicly criticised Henderson following a rare gaffe that cost his side against Liverpool early in the season but Wilder has since defended his approach, highlighting Henderson's mental toughness as one of several credentials he believes can make him the best in the country.

Speaking to Sky Sports on The Football Show, Wilder said: "Dean Henderson wants to be an international goalkeeper, win 50-odd caps, play for Manchester United. He's going to have to put up with disappointment. That's how it is. But I talked to Dean afterwards. The players know I'm their biggest supporter and backer."

Asked whether he had the potential to be England's top choice, Wilder added: "Yes, 100 per cent. He's pushing now and he's a young boy.

"He's a charismatic young guy but the biggest thing is that he's got the mental strength and a brilliant attitude and ability. I'm sure he'll gain that shirt he's desperate to get."

'Man United want him to finish the season': Chris Wilder is hopeful Dean Henderson will finish the campaign at Sheffield United as he heaps praise on the 'outstanding' goalkeeper

* Chris Wilder hopes Dean Henderson will finish the season at Sheffield United
* He is currently on loan from Manchester United but his contract is due to expire
* Henderson has made 76 appearances, keeping 32 clean sheets at Sheffield Utd

Chris Wilder is confident that Dean Henderson will finish the season at Sheffield United as he heaps praise on the 'outstanding' goalkeeper.

Henderson has been on loan with the Blades since the start of the 2018-2019 season, and has made 76 appearances, keeping 32 clean sheets.

His loan contract is due to expire at the end of June, but with the Premier League finishing later than expected due to the coronavirus pandemic, it is believed that Manchester United will extend his loan spell.

In an interview with The Gary Newbon Sport Show on Punching.TV, Wilder said: ‘One of the things that’s been talked about is the expiry of loans. We’re hopeful of extending the loan, I know Dean wants it to be extended and I’m sure Man United want him to finish the season.

‘They’ve been great with us. Our reputation when we take players has been good, I thought this is a good football club for the big clubs to send their young players to.

‘We’ve had relationships with Chelsea, Spurs, Man United and obviously, Dean has been outstanding for us, broken into the England squad.

‘We’re hopeful that’ll be extended and I think the importance of having a top-class goalie has been key for our results this year.'

The Englishman's strong displays for loan club Sheffield United has helped them enjoy an extraordinary season.

As it stands, Wilder's men sit seventh in the Premier League and only five points behind Chelsea in fourth.

Chris Wilder hopes Dean Henderson will finish the Premier League season at Sheffield United. Wilder has heaped praise on the 'outstanding' goalkeeper for keeping 32 clean sheets

Sheffield United are in pursuit of a Champions League place, with United being their biggest competitor.

United currently occupy fifth place, but Sheffield United have a game in hand and are only two points behind.

Should they push United off fifth place, they could be awarded a spot in the tournament, given that Manchester City are currently banned from the tournament by UEFA for financial fair play breaches.

Despite the ongoing battle between Manchester United and Sheffield United for a European spot, Wilder is confident that Henderson will be allowed to continue at Bramall Lane when the Premier League returns.

Should Henderson extend his contract, he will face Aston Villa on June 17 in their first game back after the football hiatus.

Bisa jadi musim depan Henderson tidak lagi dipinjamkan lagi nih tapi sudah jadi kiper ketiga. Kemungkinan Pereira atau Grant nih yang bakal dilepas namun semua tergantung posisi De Gea. Selama De Gea jadi kiper utama sepertinya Romero tetap kiper kedua dan Grant sebagai kiper ketiga :)

Dean Henderson on the verge of extending loan deal at Sheffield United until the end of the season, confirms Chris Wilder - after positive talks between Blades boss and Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

* Dean Henderson's loan deal at Sheffield United is due to expire on June 30
* But an extension until the end of the season into July will be finalised this week
* Chris Wilder held positive discussions with Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
* Wilder thanked his opposite number for being so accommodating to his club

An extension to Dean Henderson's loan deal at Sheffield United will be finalised in the 'next couple of days', says Blades manager Chris Wilder.

Henderson's loan at Bramall Lane from Manchester United is due to expire on June 30, with this season's Premier League extending into July to the coronavirus crisis which paused football for three months.

But after positive talks between Wilder and Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, an extension to the loan is expected to be confirmed before Sheffield Utd open up the Premier League restart at Aston Villa on Wednesday.

‘I spoke to Ole yesterday [Sunday] morning, I know he was at the training ground preparing his team and I thanked him for his cooperation with Dean,' Wilder told Sky Sports' The Football Show.

'We’re in the process over the next couple of days of finalising Dean staying with us till the end of the season.

'The manager was brilliant with me and our football club. He was very pro Dean staying and delighted with what he’s produced for us and what we’ve done for Dean as well.

Dean Henderson, on loan at Sheffield Utd from Manchester Utd, is set to extend his loan deal. Blades boss Chris Wilder confirmed a deal to the end of the season will be finalised soon. Positive talks on Henderson's future have been held between Wilder and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

'That can’t go understated in terms of the opportunities we’ve given Dean to play Premier League football.

'And certainly Dean has hugely been involved with our performances over the last two years and we’ve been delighted with him.'

Henderson, 23, will be involved in the first game back of Project Restart, at Villa Park on Wednesday night, as Sheffield United restart their bid for a shock Champions League place.

Solskjaer said over the weekend that Henderson has proved that he will be United and England No 1 at some point in the future.

'For me it doesn't matter when the season ends. The Sheffield United team this season has consisted of Dean in goal so he should be allowed to complete it,' said Solskjaer, whose current No 1 at United is David de Gea.

'It's not been decided in terms of where Dean is going to be next season. 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.

'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. Dean has made some great choices over the years and developed fantastically - and still is.'

Jika memang Dean Henderson benar-benar diproyeksikan menjadi kiper utama United di masa datang, mungkin selain dipinjamkan maka solusi lainnya adalah mulai mempercayakan posisi kiper utama kepada dirinya musim depan namun hanya untuk ajang piala FA dan piala Liga. Untuk Premier League dan kompetisi Eropa sepertinya De Gea dan Romero masih pilihan terbaik saat ini.

Dean Henderson 'will only sign new Manchester United contract if he's promised No 1 spot' as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer weighs up replacing David De Gea with promising English star

* Dean Henderson wants to be Manchester United's No 1 before signing a new deal
* The stopper has impressed once again on loan at Sheffield United this season
* He is due to return to Old Trafford this summer but doesn't want to play back up
* David De Gea had another bad night at Tottenham and is future is now in doubt

Dean Henderson will hold off signing a new contract at Manchester United unless he is guaranteed to be the No 1 goalkeeper next season, according to reports.

The 23-year-old has been outstanding while on loan at Sheffield United and helped the Blades mount an unlikely challenge for European football during their first season back in the Premier League.

His loan at Bramall Lane is due to expire this summer, with the clubs reportedly close to agreeing an extension so he can play for Chris Wilder until the season concludes, but talk has already turned to how he will feature for Ole Gunner Solskjaer in future.

David De Gea is United's current first-choice goalkeeper but a series of errors this season, including in last week's draw at Tottenham, have given Henderson hope he could usurp him this summer.

And according to Manchester Evening News, Henderson is only willing to put pen to paper on a new contract 'if he is promised the No 1 spot'.

It is claimed Henderson has already received several offers to leave Old Trafford again this summer but he does not expect to quit the club permanently.

However, Henderson is not willing to sit on the bench and play second fiddle to the Spaniard and does not want to be in the position of being sent out on loan every summer until De Gea leaves.

Solskjaer has admitted Henderson will become the club's main goalkeeper one day but United only agreed a new four-year deal with De Gea back in September.

Dean Henderson will only stay at Manchester United if he is guaranteed to be No 1 goalkeeper. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must decided whether or not to replace David De Gea with Henderson. Henderson has once again caught the eye while out on loan at Sheffield United this season

Chelsea and Tottenham have both shown an interest in securing Henderson's services. He has a contract with United until 2022 with the club having the option of extending it by a further 12 months.

Under the terms of his loan, Henderson is ineligible to play against his parent club when the Blades travel to Old Trafford on Wednesday evening.

Blades boss Wilder revealed on Monday he is confident the club can extend Henderson's loan deal until the delayed Premier League season concludes.

'I believe it's now just administration with the two clubs,' said Wilder. 'I had a chat with Ole and he was fine with extending his loan until the end of the season.

'Hopefully, that will get signed off before the deadline.'

Wilder continued: 'I appreciate Ole's help on that one. Dean has been great for us and we have been great for Dean.'

Minta jaminan sebagai kiper utama ?
Wah kalau saya sih seandainya De Gea hengkang kok masih lebih percaya Romero yach untuk 1-2 musim kedepan dibanding Henderson yach....

Bikin Blunder, Henderson Kena Semprot Ferdinand
Putra Rusdi K - detikSport


Sheffield - Legenda Manchester United, Rio Ferdinand, mengkritik Dean Henderson saat Sheffield United kalah dari Arsenal. Ia dinilai membuat blunder yang berakibat gol.

Sheffield takluk 1-2 dari Arsenal kala berlaga di Brammall Lane pada laga perempat final Piala FA, Minggu (28/6/2020) malam WIB. Laga ini berlangsung sengit dengan skor imbang 1-1 hingga menit akhir laga.

The Gunners unggul lewat penalti Nicolas Pepe di menit ke-25. Tuan rumah kemudian mampu menyamakan kedudukan melalui David McGoldrick di menit ke-87.

Arsenal kemudian memastikan kemenangan melalui Dani Ceballos di masa injury time. Gol ini dinilai lahir karena ketidaktepatan Henderson dalam mengambil keputusan.

Kiper yang dipinjam dari MU ini maju meninggalkan sarangnya, tepi tak cukup baik dalam menutup ruang tembak Ceballos. Sepakan Ceballos dari sudut sempit meluncur ke gawang Sheffield.

Ferdinand turut mengkritisi keputusan Henderson ini. Gol tersebut menunjukkan bahwa kiper 23 tahun ini tak cukup baik dalam menjalin komunikasi dengan pemain belakang.

"Saya berbicara tentang ini beberapa waktu lalu, sebagai bek saya akan sangat marah dengan penjaga gawang di sana. Saya mengatakan kepada penjaga gawang untuk menjaga pos depan, tidak boleh ada yang melewati pose depan," ujar Ferdinand dikutip dari Mirror.

"Para penjaga gawang mungkin menyarankan hal yang berbeda soal ini, Namun, yang saya lakukan saat bermain adalah seperti ini."

Kritik Ferdinand ini tentu diharapkan membuat Henderson bisa lebih baik lagi. Apalagi, kiper kelahiran Whitehaven ini digadang-gadang sebagai kiper masa depan MU.

Nama Henderson beberapa kali mencuat bakal menjadi pengganti David De Gea usai kiper asal Spanyol tersebut beberapa kali membuat blunder fatal.

Terlepas dari kesalahannya di laga kontra Arsenal, Henderson sebenarnya tampil cukup baik di Liga Inggris musim ini. Ia menjadi kiper dengan jumlah cleansheet terbanyak ketiga di Liga Inggris dengan mencatatkan 11 laga tak kebobolan.

Dean Henderson to stay at Sheffield United until the end of the season after Blades agree loan extension with Manchester United for goalkeeper

* Dean Henderson's loan deal at Sheffield United was set to expire on June 30
* Sheffield United and Manchester United have spent last two weeks in talks
* Henderson will now stay at Bramall Lane until the end of the 2020/21 season
* The 23-year-old has spent the last two years on loan with the Yorkshire club

Dean Henderson's loan deal at Sheffield United has been extended until the end of the season after the Blades agreed an extension with Manchester United.

Henderson's loan was set to expire at the end of June, which would've seen him return to Old Trafford before the end of the campaign.

But he will now remain at Bramall Lane, where he has spent the last two seasons on loan, and been one of their stand out performers this term.

Dean Henderson's loan deal at Sheffield United has been extended until the end of the season. Henderson was set to return to parent club Manchester United when loan expired on June 30. The 23-year-old has been tipped to replace David de Gea as No 1 at Old Trafford next season

The 23-year-old's form this season has seen him tipped to replace David De Gea at Old Trafford next term but his performances have dipped since football's resumption after the pandemic-enforced break.

Henderson was criticised for his performance in the Blades' FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Arsenal on Sunday, after failing to keep out Dani Ceballos' injury-time winner at his near post.

Former United defender Rio Ferdinand was among his critics and felt the youngster should've done better.

'I spoke about this a while ago, as a defender I would be very upset with the keeper there,' Ferdinand told BT Sport. 'I'm saying to the keeper, 'the front post, nothing goes through the front post'.

Henderson was criticised for failing to keep out Arsenal's injury-time winner on Sunday. He retains the backing of United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who has praised his displays

'The goalkeepers' union might suggest something different but when I was playing that was how I used to feel.'

But he retains the support of United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has tipped him to become the club's and England's No 1 in the years to come.

When asked about the prospect of Henderson replacing De Gea, he said: 'It's a different job to be playing for Sheffield United and for Man United, there are different, how do you say, he's got different roles and for me the two years he's had have been fantastic development.

'He's had to play with men, he's had to play against men, he's played in the Championship, and plays in a team that play fantastic football and exciting football.

'And as the stats show he's proved worthy of quite a few points. He's learning all the time, he's a passionate keeper that wants to be the best, he's developing, he's got good coaching there and, I've said it before, one day he'll be England No.1 and Man United No.1 and it's up to him to keep developing.'

Dean Henderson set for talks with Manchester United next week and the Chelsea target is ready to return to Old Trafford if he is assured of being first choice ahead of under-fire Spaniard David de Gea

* Dean Henderson is ready to return to Old Trafford after two years out on loan
* The Sheffield United keeper does not want to be backup to David de Gea
* Pressure is growing on the Spaniard after another howler against Chelsea
* Man United will also discuss an improved contract for Henderson next week

Manchester United will hold talks with Dean Henderson next week as the pressure grows on under-fire goalkeeper David de Gea.

Henderson is ready to return to Old Trafford next season after two years on loan at Sheffield United if he is assured of being the club's No 1 keeper.

The ambitious 23-year-old has no intention of acting as back-up for De Gea, who is under scrutiny after another calamitous display in United's 3-1 defeat by Chelsea in Sunday's FA Cup semi-final.

https://i.postimg.cc/hG88x4dd/30992492-8542625-image-a-38-1595280057333.jpg (https://postimages.org/)
Manchester United will hold talks with Dean Henderson next week about a return to the club. The news comes amid growing pressure on current first-choice goalkeeper David de Gea

It has put renewed pressure on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop De Gea, and placed a question mark over the 29-year-old Spaniard's long-term future at the club.

That could open the door for highly-rated Henderson, who will play his final game for Sheffield United on Sunday before his representatives meet Old Trafford officials next week.

They will discuss improving the £35,000-a-week contract Henderson signed a year ago to reflect his recent progress amid interest from Chelsea.

The two sides will also look at the England Under 21 keeper's next move because he hopes to challenge for a senior squad place at next summer's Euros.

Sheffield United want Henderson back, but he is keen to play at a higher level as long as he is first choice.

The prospect of replacing De Gea at United hinges on whether Solskjaer continues to support the former Atletico Madrid keeper or calls time on his Old Trafford career after more than 400 appearances.

Another obstacle would be finding a club willing to sign De Gea and match the £375,000-a-week deal he signed last September. That contract still has three years to run.

However, Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder was in no mood to discuss where Henderson would be playing next season after his side's defeat to Everton.

'I'm not interested in talking about an individual tonight,' Wilder told Sky Sports, having seen Toffees striker Richarlison deliver a massive blow to the Blades' European hopes with the only goal of the game.

Several pundits have however called on De Gea to be dropped after his Wembley clanger.

Alan Shearer was the most vociferous first all, insisting on BBC One that the persistent nature of the mistakes means United must now put the Spaniard out of his misery.

United icon Paul Ince also laid into the 29-year-old for making 'schoolboy errors' and for having lost his hunger, while Kevin Campbell believes his mistake for Mason Mount's goal on Sunday should now open the door for Henderson.

Chelsea 'ready to hand Dean Henderson a £170,000-a-week deal if Manchester United don't guarantee him first-team football'... but goalkeeper will cost £55m as Frank Lampard searches for a new No 1

* Chelsea are keen to swoop for Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson
* The Blues are on the search for a new first-choice stopper ahead of next season
* Henderson demanded first-team football at United before penning a new deal
* And Chelsea are now said to be favourites to sign the highly-rated 23-year-old

Chelsea are reportedly poised to offer Dean Henderson a bumper £170,000-a-week deal should Manchester United fail to guarantee the highly-rated goalkeeper regular first-team action.

The 23-year-old, who has enjoyed another successful campaign with Sheffield United, recently returned to Old Trafford and has demanded guaranteed game time before signing a new deal.

According to The Mirror, Henderson tops Frank Lampard's shortlist for a new stopper this summer with a £55million offer believed to be enough to snare him.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to tie down Henderson to a new long-term contract and provide competition for under-fire David de Gea, but is believed to still view the Spain international as his first-choice keeper.

As such, Solskjaer may be unwilling to offer Henderson the assurances he is hoping for despite De Gea enduring a season littered with high-profile errors.

Henderson harbours ambitions of breaking into the England team and is said to have told friends that, while he is 'desperate' to play for United, he is open to looking elsewhere.

Chelsea are reportedly favourites to sign Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson. The highly-rated 23-year-old tops Frank Lampard's shortlist for a new stopper this summer. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still views David de Gea as his first-choice despite his string of mistakes. Henderson has impressed with Sheffield United and has demanded regular Old Trafford action. The ambitious stopper is believed to have told friends he is open to securing a move away

Chelsea would then be favourites to sign Henderson should they table a hefty offer.

Lampard remains unconvinced by current custodian Kepa Arrizabalaga, having dropped the £72m man for the crunch final game of the season against Wolves.

The same outlet suggest Henderson is his first-choice target for a replacement, with Tottenham also holding an interest.

The north London outfit will not be dragged into a bidding war, however, despit

Henderson, who has two years left on his United deal, kept 13 clean sheets from 36 games this campaign. Chris Wilder is understandably keen to flesh out a third consecutive loan spell.

But it is now believed that Henderson is keen to play at a higher level provided he is first choice.

Sportsmail previously reported that Henderson's representatives are set to meet Old Trafford officials over the coming days to reach an agreement over the ambitious player's future.

They will also hold discussions over improving the £35,000-a-week contract Henderson signed a year ago to reflect his progress between the sticks.

Diskusi Kontrak Dean Henderson di MU Masuki Fase Krusial
Kris Fathoni W - detikSport

Jakarta - Bagaimana kelanjutan Dean Henderson di Manchester United kini memasuki masa-masa menentukan. Diskusi kontrak baru disebut memasuki fase krusial.

Sky Sports menyebut, masa depan Dean Henderson di Man United akan semakin jelas dalam kurun waktu dua pekan ke depan. Saat ini proses diskusi sudah berjalan, tapi belum ada kesepakatan.

Dalam kontrak baru itu MU kabarnya siap memberikan tawaran dengan gaji tinggi yang membuat kiper 23 tahun tersebut bakal jadi salah satu penjaga gawang dengan bayaran terbesar di Eropa.

CEO Man United Ed Woodward dijadwalkan bertemu dengan para pemilik klub pada pekan ini. Pembahasan mengenai seberapa besar Setan Merah siap memberi tawaran kontrak baru ke Dean Henderson diprediksi jadi salah satu agendanya.

Man United sendiri memproyeksikan Dean Henderson sebagai kiper jangka panjang dan bersiap memberinya kontrak dengan durasi paling tidak lima tahun ke depan.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, manajer the Red Devils, disebut menaruh kekaguman besar kepada Dean Henderson dan peningkatan performanya musim ini. Ia pun tak menutup kemungkinan Henderson dan David De Gea bersaing secara terbuka dalam berebut posisi kiper nomor satu.

Dean Henderson menghabiskan musim 2019/2020 dengan dipinjamkan ke Sheffield United. Ia membantu tim Chris Wilder finis di posisi kesembilan klasemen akhir, salah satunya berkat keberhasilan mencatatkan 13 clean sheets.

Wilder juga akan senang hati jika Dean Henderson kembali dipinjamkan untuk periode ketiga di klub tersebut. Tapi persaingan untuk hal itu kabarnya ketat sekali karena banyak yang menaruh minat kepada kiper tersebut.

Chelsea disebut sebagai salah satu klub yang terus memantau perkembagan situasi di Old Trafford dan siap memanfaatkan kesempatan andaikata Dean Henderson tidak mencapai kata sepakat dengan Man United. Dalam kontraknya di MU saat ini, Henderson masih menyisakan dua tahun lalu dengan opsi perpanjangan buat tahun ketiga.

Dean Henderson 'hands ultimatum to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he demands to become Manchester United's No 1 or be sold' after returning from impressive loan at Sheffield United

* Manchester United keeper Dean Henderson has no plans to be second choice
* The Englishman has reportedly handed an ultimatum to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
* Henderson is said to have demanded to become first choice or be sold
* He has enjoyed a stellar season at Sheffield United with Chelsea reportedly keen
* Meanwhile, David de Gea is under pressure after some high profile mistakes

Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson reportedly has no intention of being second choice at Old Trafford - telling Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to either make him No.1 or find him a new club.

The English shot stopper has returned to his boyhood club on the back of two impressive seasons with Sheffield United, and there have been calls for him to replace the error-prone David de Gea in goal.

The Spaniard has been United's undisputed No.1 goalkeeper for the last nine seasons, but according to the Sun, Henderson does not want to be his understudy and has told Solskjaer to let him leave if he cannot guarantee first team football.

Henderson is said to have admirers at Chelsea, who are having a goalkeeping crisis of their own after Frank Lampard became underwhelmed by the performances of £70million man Kepa Arrizabalaga and benched him for Willy Caballero.

The 23-year-old made 97 saves in goal for the Blades as they made a push for European football under Chris Wilder, as he also contributed with 13 clean sheets to help the team boast one of the best defences in the division.

He began his career at United and has been sent on on five loan spells - coming alive at Bramall Lane as the team won promotion in 2018-19 before gaining further plaudits this season and earning his first England call up in October.

Dean Henderson has reportedly handed an ultimatum to Man United over his future at the club. He is said to have told Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to make him first choice or find him a new club. There have been calls for him to replace David de Gea after some high profile mistakes

The spotlight was shone on De Gea after his glaring error in the 3-1 FA Cup semi-final loss to Chelsea, with the Spaniard allowing Mason Mount's tame shot to squirm under him.

And in December he was left embarassed after failing to keep a looping shot out of his top corner against Watford as he let in a weak bouncing shot - collapsing to the turf in disbelief.

United fans have been leading the calls for Henderson to be given a chance after becoming concerned at the 29-year-old's decline, but he will be eager to ensure he continues to enjoy regular action with the Euros on the horizon next summer.

The England No.1 jersey is still up for grabs with no obvious stand-out at present and 2018 World Cup starter Jordan Pickford out of form.

Solskjaer is plotting an overhaul at United and is closing in on the signing of Jadon Sancho from Dortmund in a deal that could exceed £100m.

But consistency from his man in the sticks should also be a priority as he bids to turn the team into title challengers next season.


kalo Ole masih percaya dengan De Gea, jual saja Henderson dengan ditambahkan buy back clause

Dean Henderson's future at Man United no closer to being resolved with England stopper left in limbo as he prepares to return from successful loan spell at Sheffield United

* Manchester United still haven't resolved the future of Dean Henderson
* Sportsmail understands United are likely to persist with David de Gea in goal
* Sheffield United are interested in re-signing Henderson for a third loan spell

Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson's future is no closer to being resolved with less than a month until the Premier League season kicks off.

Henderson's camp held talks with United two weeks ago but nothing has been decided about the England Under-21 international's situation.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted he doesn't have room for three senior goalkeepers, and Sportsmail understands United are likely to stick with David de Gea and Sergio Romero while sending Henderson out on loan again.

The 23-year-old has spent the past two seasons at Sheffield United who want him back and are growing impatient, with the new campaign starting on September 12.

They have bid £15million for Bournemouth keeper Aaron Ramsdale but the club want closer to £25m.

Henderson is understood to be relaxed about the situation but determined to be first choice wherever he goes in a bid to become England No 1 at the European Champion-ships next summer.

Although he signed a £35,000-a-week contract a year ago, United may offer him improved terms to reflect his status as one of the best keepers in the Premier League and avoid a scenario in which he would return from another loan spell with only a year left on his current deal.

Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson is in limbo with his future still unresolved. Sportsmail understands that United are likely to stick with David de Gea in goal next season. Henderson excelled on loan at Sheffield United and could rejoin the Blades for another spell

The Old Trafford hierarchy are not averse to Henderson rejoining Sheffield United but would prefer to loan him to a foreign team instead of a Premier League rival.

Chelsea and Arsenal are the other top-flight clubs on the look-out for a new keeper but it is unlikely United would let Henderson join either. They are also keen for the youngster to play for a team with a similar style to theirs as they groom him to become De Gea's successor.

De Gea has again come under intense scrutiny over his performances recently but United know it would be difficult to offload their top earner - who signed a £375,000-a-week contract less than a year ago - or put the Spaniard on the bench.

United could keep Henderson to provide competition for De Gea but the younger man has made it clear he only wants to return as No 1 and not as back-up.

Winger Tahith Chong is likely to go on loan with the club discussing a move to Werder Bremen. Midfielder James Garner is also set for a loan with interest from Swansea, Cardiff and Bournemouth.

* Goalkeeper Dean Henderson has signed a new deal with Manchester United
* The 23-year-old stopper is ready to challenge David de Gea to be United's No 1
* Henderson, who excelled at Sheffield United, will earn up to £120,000-a-week

Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has agreed his new six year contract worth up to £120,000-a-week.

The 23-year-old has been in training at Carrington ahead of his call-up to the England squad on Tuesday and United have taken the opportunity to accelerate talks over a new long-term deal.

Henderson said: 'The pathway that I have been on for the past five years has been fantastic for my development and the invaluable loan period at Sheffield United has been part of that.

'The goalkeeping department at United is excellent; there are three top-level goalkeepers who have achieved so much in the game and I look forward to working with the group.

'The faith that the manager and the club have shown in me with this contract means a lot to me and will continue my progression as a goalkeeper.

Henderson, who will earn up to £120,000-a-week, is ready to challenge David de Gea at United. The 23-year-old's contract runs until the summer of 2025 with the option of a further year

'I’ll be giving everything to improve every day so that I can play as many games as possible for this great club.

'Now I am looking forward to joining up with the England squad and then preparing for the season ahead.'

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would like Henderson to compete with David de Gea for the No 1 position but has still to discuss fully what opportunities he can afford to give the young goalkeeper.

Henderson wants to continue his career momentum and play regularly, so question marks remain around spending this coming season competing with de Gea, who is on £360,000-a-week, even though they will have the rigours of Champions League football to contend with.

Long-standing deputy Sergio Romero also wants to play more regularly and is open to moving on amid interest from other Premier League sides.

Indeed, United's embarrassment of riches in the goalkeeping department will drain on resources in terms of salaries.

They are already in the process of streamlining with Joel Pereira talking over a loan move to Huddersfield Town and Matej Kovar joining Swindon Town.

'If I was him, I would make the same decision': Gareth Southgate backs Dean Henderson's choice to challenge David De Gea for the Manchester United No 1 shirt after signing new deal at Old Trafford

* Gareth Southgate has backed Dean Henderson's decision to leave Sheffield Utd
* Goalkeeper Henderson returned to Manchester United training earlier this week
* Henderson will be challenging David de Gea for the No 1 spot at Man United
* Southgate has included Henderson in his squad to face Iceland next weekend

Gareth Southgate has backed Dean Henderson's decision to leave Sheffield United and return to his parent club Manchester United to challenge David de Gea for the No 1 spot there even though it may initially mean he plays less.

The England manager, who included Henderson in his squad to face Iceland next weekend, says that the 23-year-old goalkeeper has picked the right time to step up to the challenge after a year on loan at Shrewsbury and two years on loan at Bramall Lane.

'I think it's an opportunity for him really,' said Southgate. 'Of course, he could take another season out and gain another year of Premier League experience but at his age as a goalkeeper you can't just think about the international situation.

England's Gareth Southgate has backed Dean Henderson's decision to leave Sheffield United. Southgate says he would have made the same call as Henderson to fight for his United spot

'You are building a career and here's an opportunity to challenge for the shirt at Manchester United if they are asking him to stay in the building.

'If I was him and I had the chance to push to be the Manchester United No 1, then I'd make the same decision he has. He's got the chance to train every day in front of the manager, to influence him and put David de Gea under pressure for his place.

'I think for his career it's a logical decision given the number of matches United will have next season.'

'It wouldn't be clever for me to sit around and not play football': Dean Henderson warns Manchester United he will LEAVE if he cannot oust David De Gea as No 1 after signing new £120,000-a-week deal

* Dean Henderson recently penned a new five-year contract at Manchester United
* He has moved back to United after shining at Sheffield United in Premier League
* Henderson is now eyeing the No 1 spot at Old Trafford ahead of David de Gea
* But the England shot-stopper has warned United he will leave if he is not No 1

Dean Henderson has warned Manchester United that he will look to leave if it's clear he will be No 2 goalkeeper to David de Gea.

The England keeper has set his sights on De Gea's role as United's first choice this season after recently signing a new five-year deal worth £120,000 a week.

Henderson said: 'Look, 100 per cent, the aim is for me to play football next season.

'I don't think I want to be not playing after last season, coming off a good season with momentum.'

Following that successful loan spell at Sheffield United last term, which culminated in a call-up to Gareth Southgate's England squad, Henderson's future has been the subject of scrutiny.

But his decision to sign the new deal at Old Trafford will see him start the new season with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side and battle it out with De Gea to become the club's No 1.

However, when asked whether he would seek another loan move if it became clear he would be No 2, Henderson responded: 'Yes. It wouldn't be clever for me to sit around and not play football, I don't think it would help any parties at all.

'You can get many things from training and obviously learn off someone like David and the other goalkeepers and coaches.

'But I don't think there's any substitute for game-time. I went out from Manchester United five years ago, started at Stockport, Grimsby, Shrewsbury and then Sheffield which shows how much I've learned, picking up experiences that happen in games because they're situations that you don't really get in training.

Dean Henderson recently put pen to paper on a new five-year contract at Manchester United. Henderson is currently on duty with England ahead of the start of the Nations League. Henderson is desperate to claim the No 1 spot at Old Trafford ahead of David de Gea

'I'm not going to improve just sitting on the bench. I need that game-time. I feel like a new signing at United. I haven't been in the building for five years. I've had a lot of time away.'

United's first game of the season is on September 19 when Crystal Palace visit.

Solskjaer's side will play three Premier League games before the transfer window shuts on October 5 — a period which is likely to prove crucial as Henderson, 23, weighs up his future.

For now, he has set his sights on overtaking De Gea.

He said: 'David de Gea has obviously been a great goalkeeper for many years. He's been phenomenal and that's something I aspire to be, to have a career like his at the club, so I'll be going back in first day of the pre-season working my socks off to get in that starting line-up because it's something I've always wanted.

'I'm so close now so I'm not going to give up, I'm going to put the pressure on. I respect David, he's been a phenomenal servant for the football club and one of the best in recent years. It's down to me. I know what challenges are going to be ahead. I'm well up for it.'

Henderson is also targeting becoming England's No 1. As revealed by Sportsmail on Wednesday, Jordan Pickford's position as Southgate's first choice is in doubt following an alarming dip in form.

Burnley's Nick Pope is the favourite to replace Pickford, but Henderson's emergence offers another genuine option should the coach decide to make a change.

But while Henderson agrees one of his ultimate goals is to become England No 1, he concedes that will not be possible if he is second-choice at United.

'I 100 per cent accept that (you can't be No 1 for England if you are No 2 at your club),' he added. 'I know what I've got to do. We're all challenging for the No 1 shirt and it's obviously something that I aspire to be.

'I'm working hard every day to be Gareth's No 1 but I know I've got to get past two very good keepers. I want to play for England and I want to play for Manchester United so I'm just going to keep working hard every single day.

'I'm sure one day I'll get to where I want to be. For me it's just train as hard as ever and then one day it's going to pay off.'

Sudah saatnya Ole memberikan kesempatan dan kepercayaan lebih kepada Henderson musim ini karena suka tidak suka penampilan De Gea sudah mulai menurun dalam beberapa musim terakhir. Mungkin sistem rotasi bergantian dengan Henderson bisa menyegarkan De Gea sehingga bisa tampil prima lagi pada paruh kedua musim ini.

Dean Henderson is fulfilling his childhhood dream by making his Manchester United debut tonight against Luton Town in the Carabao Cup.

After impressive loan spells at Sheffield United, the 23-year-old shot-stopper played against Aston Villa in our only pre-season friendly, before being named among the substitutes in the Premier League season opener against Crystal Palace.

Henderson, who arrived in Manchester from Carlisle United at the age of 14, had before this season been on the bench for United's first team on two occasions - in the Emirates FA Cup ties against Shrewsbury Town and Blackburn Rovers in 2016 and 2017 respectively.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke to MUTV ahead of our goalkeeper's first-team debut and acknowledged it's a special night for him.

“Definitely. He’s been waiting patiently for so long,” the manager told us. “Well, you cannot say patiently, because he is very driven. He has a great desire to play for United in goal and finally now he is getting his first competitive game for us.”

The Whitehaven man made 36 Premier League appearances for the Blades last season, missing only the two clashes with the Reds for which he was unavailable for as a loanee. He also started all 46 games for Chris Wilder's team in their promotion campaign from the Championship in 2018/19.

As for international recognition, Henderson was named in the England squad for the UEFA Nations League games against Iceland and Denmark earlier this month, although he is yet to make his senior debut for the Three Lions.

Other than his two spells at Sheffield United, Henderson has also been on loan at Stockport County, Grimsby and Shrewsbury. He becomes the 12th player from United's Academy to make his first-team debut since Solskjaer became manager.

'The future is in safe hands': Manchester United fans praise Dean Henderson for a vital stop at 1-0 in Carabao Cup win at Luton as the goalkeeper finally makes his Red Devils debut

* Manchester United fans have praised Dean Henderson after his first-team debut
* The goalkeeper made an impressive save when his side were 1-0 up at Luton
* United went on to win 3-0 to progress to the fourth round of the Carabao Cup

Manchester United fans have heaped praise on Dean Henderson after the goalkeeper made a vital save as his side led Luton 1-0 in the Carabao Cup.

The Premier League side went to win the third-round tie 3-0 but Henderson, who was making his United debut, prevented Nathan Jones' team getting back into the game in the 81st minute.

Henderson had little to do but sprung into action when called upon, making his first save of the evening to deny Tom Lockyer, who then saw his follow-up effort cleared off the line.

https://i.postimg.cc/pXskpYHm/33502304-8761951-image-a-23-1600815561735.jpg (https://postimages.org/)

The shot-stopper is currently Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's No2 with David de Gea still the first choice 'keeper but the 23-year-old gave a good account of himself at Kenilworth Road.

And fans heaped praise on the England international, with one supporter claiming: 'The future is in safe hands.'

https://i.postimg.cc/SRqVzgRM/33501916-8761951-image-a-13-1600815230596.jpg (https://postimages.org/)

Another tweeted: 'Great performance Hendo! And great save!.. first of many hopefully mate.'

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side took the lead through a Juan Mata penalty in the first half before late goals from Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood ensured victory.

Henderson shared his joy at making his debut for the Red Devils, tweeting: 'I dreamt about this my whole life! Unbelievable feeling to make my debut for the club I love!! Clean sheet and a win to top it off!!!'

https://i.postimg.cc/xdw69fSg/33501912-8761951-image-a-7-1600815083006.jpg (https://postimages.org/)

One fan replied to the 'keeper: 'Deano what concentration you had throughout that game, you had virtually nothing to do until the 81st minute only to pull off a top drawer save. Future is looking bright lad. Future England No1 and future Manchester United No1.'

Other supporters described the save as 'world class' and predicted it would be the 'first of many' for the youngster.

His manager was also full of praise for the 'keeper after the game. 'We have a 'keeper back there who’s done his job. It was a good workout. That’s the job our keeper sometimes have to do. They have to stay concentrated and David has done that for years.'


jangan2 di GW3 (GW2 bagi United) bisa2 Henderson nih yg diturunkan oleh Ole dan juga Bailly duet ama Maguire setelah penampilan buruk Lindelof :-":-"

Dean Henderson Terus Mantap
Afif Farhan - detikSport


Brighton - Dean Henderson kembali diturunkan dalam lanjutan Piala Liga Inggris. Dirinya kembali sukses menjaga 'kesucian' gawang Manchester United.

Lanjutan Carabao Cup alias Piala Liga Inggris pada Kamis (1/10/) dini hari WIB mempertemukan Brighton & Hove Albion vs Manchester United. Setan Merah menang telak tiga gol tanpa balas.

Tiga gol Manchester United dibukukan oleh Scott McTominay jelang turun minum. Di paruh kedua, Juan Mata dan Paul Pogba menegaskan kemenangan MU.

Dean Henderson kembali dipercaya mengawal gawang Manchester United. Dirinya pun membayar kepercayaan manajer Ole Gunnar Solskjaer dengan tuntas.

Dean Henderson mampu mengamankan dua kali gawangnya dari dua shots on target Brighton. Satu penyelamatan gemilang dibuat di babak kedua.

Henderson mampu melakukan refleks cepat mengantisipasi sepakan Leandro Trossard dengan tangan kirinya. Badannya bak mati langkah, tapi tangan kirinya masih bisa bergerak untuk menepis bola.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer pun dibuat terpukau oleh penampilan Dean Henderson. Solskjaer memuji kiper berusia 23 tahun itu.

"Dean Henderson bikin penyelamatan gemilang. Dia suka untuk terus clean sheets," katanya seperti dilansir dari Mirror.

Di babak Piala Liga Inggris sebelumnya, Dean Henderson juga dipasang sebagai starter kala kontra Luton. Dia pun bikin beberapa penyelamatan gemilang di laga itu.

Makin ketat nih persaingan penjaga gawang di Manchester United. Kalau Henderson terus apik, bisa jadi suatu saat David De Gea tergeser.

'He is a very good goalkeeper - De Gea is going to have a battle on to stay as No 1 for Manchester United': Andy Cole full of praise for Dean Henderson after fine save from Leandro Trossard preserved his second clean sheet in two matches

* Andy Cole and Darren Fletcher heaped praise on Man United's Dean Henderson
* Henderson executed an outstanding one-handed save to deny Leandro Trossard
* Henderson is pushing to overtake David De Gea as the first-choice goalkeeper

Andy Cole and Darren Fletcher have heaped praise on Dean Henderson after his stellar performance in Manchester United's triumph over Brighton.

Henderson executed an outstanding one-handed save to deny Leandro Trossard and preserve his second clean sheet for United as they won 3-0 on Wednesday night.

Such a performance would have left David De Gea sitting uncomfortably as his competitor closes in on his position as first-choice goalkeeper.

Andy Cole and Darren Fletcher have heaped praise on Manchester United's Dean Henderson

Speaking of Henderson's performance, Cole told Sky Sports: 'Very good again. We have spoken about it previously, playing in goal for Manchester United is not easy, especially when United are playing well because you’re not really called upon but when he has been called upon this evening, he has made two real good saves.

'He has definitely impressed me when he has been given the opportunity in goal.'

Darren Fletcher agreed, saying: 'This is a fantastic save, and this is at 1-0. It keeps them right in the game, Trossard thinks he has scored there.

'He stays up big, gets a strong hand to it, puts it past the post. He did the exact same thing against Luton.

'United were struggling a little bit and Luton had a header at the back post and he made a fantastic save.

'Henderson has proven to everyone that he is a very good goalkeeper, and De Gea is going to have a battle on to stay as No 1 for Manchester United.'

'We spoke then as well, you expect to make saves at Sheffield United with all due respect but at Manchester United, he’s made two great saves tonight, and he has been there and he has been counted upon.

'That could have easily been 1-1, confidence goes down, Brighton come back into the game. But off the back of that, the rest of the team say we’ve got away with one there and then they go on and win 3-0 and it’s a comfortable victory.'

After coming through the United academy, Henderson made his United debut in the 3-0 win over Luton in the Carabao Cup last week.

Having produced another impressive performance against Premier League opposition, Henderson is pushing to overtake David De Gea as the first-choice keeper.

When asked if he thought Henderson could replace De Gea between the sticks, Cole said: 'I think De Gea is in a little bit of credit from his previous seasons at Manchester United.

'I think it is more what he doesn’t do. If he has a bit of a season like he did last season, I think Henderson will definitely get his opportunity.

Sejauh ini penampilannya di awal musim ini cukup menjanjikan, namun masih belum teruji dalam pertandingan Liga Champions nih. Kalau Ole berani menurunkannya saat lawan PSG, wah salut banget deh :D

Lee Grant has spoken highly about Dean Henderson's performances in the Manchester United shirt so far.
Dean made his debut for the Reds against Luton Town in the Carabao Cup in September and came up with a great reaction save to deny the hosts' defender Tom Lockyer a goal in our 3-0 win at Kenilworth Road.

The England Under-21 international was also selected between the sticks by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the following round of the tournament when we saw off Brighton & Hove Albion with another three-goal win - as well as a clean sheet.

Dean's goalkeeper colleague Lee Grant is excited to see what Henderson will achieve in his United career following a promising start, acknowledging his concentration.

“It’s hugely important,” our no. 13 said. “We like to dominate possession and we like to dominate the opposition so we’re not always at the heart of the action. As Dean showed really well on a couple of occasions you have to be ready when called upon.”

The United Academy product has been selected in Gareth Southgate's latest England squad but remained on the bench as the Three Lions overcome Wales 3-0 at Wembley on Thursday.

Should he make his England debut against Belgium or Denmark in the upcoming Nations League games, he would become the sixth United goalkeeper to represent England while on the books with the Reds, after Gary Bailey, Ben Foster, Jack Mew, Alex Stepney and Ray Wood.

Grant is pleased with United's goalkeeper group, complimenting the spirit in the camp and admits all our stoppers have made their mark, not just Henderson.

“I have [been impressed], but not just from him,“ the 37-year-old said.

”Nathan Bishop has been outstanding in training and all the lads will tell you the same. David [De Gea] has come back with a really high level so I’m really pleased for David and how he has started the season as well. The goalkeeping department is in really good shape.”

Dean Henderson 'could be loaned out in January in the hope of ousting Jordan Pickford as England No 1' as Manchester United block Sergio Romero from leaving as a back-up

* Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson could be loaned out in January
* David de Gea has nailed down the No.1 spot under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
* Henderson is hoping for a place in the England team at the Euros next summer
* But he will need regular football to be considered by manager Gareth Southgate
* United blocked Sergio Romero from leaving as they weigh up Henderson's future

Manchester United could allow goalkeeper Dean Henderson to leave on loan in January as he bids for the England No.1 jersey, reports claim.

David de Gea has kept his place as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first choice man between the sticks, leaving Henderson to contend with a role on the bench despite excelling during a temporary switch at Sheffield United last season.

Henderson will be keen on staking a claim to be Gareth Southgate's pick at next summer's Euros over Jordan Pickford, but he will need regular football - which could force United to sanction a loan deal, according to ESPN.

https://i.postimg.cc/Y0Y0YMZG/35474224-0-image-a-27-1604936903933.jpg (https://postimages.org/)
Dean Henderson could be allowed to leave Man United on loan in January, reports claim. Sergio Romero also wants to leave but United will wait until Henderson's future is clearer

Fellow keeper Sergio Romero is also keen on leaving in January after being left out of Solskjaer's squads, but the club have blocked a move and will put any departure on ice until they have finalised a plan for Henderson, the report adds.

The veteran Argentine came close to a move to David Beckham's MLS franchise Inter Miami, but the deal fell through and was also left frustrated when a transfer to Everton failed to materialise.

The £100,000 a week keeper was upset with how he was treated by the club and is said to be training alone, but he could be forced to stay until the summer should Henderson depart - with Solskjaer keen to have more options, ESPN says.

Many fans and pundits had tipped Henderson to become No.1 goalkeeper for both Manchester United and England after catching the eye on loan at Bramall Lane last season. Chris Wilder's side would be the leading favourites to secure him once again after sinking to the foot of the Premier League table.

With no goalkeeper cementing their position as England's No.1, Henderson will be confident of claiming the place should he gain regular minutes - especially after criticism of Pickford for Everton this season.

The Toffees star has been Southgate's preferred choice and impressed at the 2018 World Cup in Russia as the Three Lions reached the semi-finals, but he has been guilty of some glaring mistakes and will face pressure for his position from both Henderson and Burnley's Nick Pope.

Henderson is hoping to challenge Jordan Pickford for the England No.1 spot at the Euros. But Henderson, who excelled on loan at Sheffield United last season, needs more minutes

Carlo Ancelotti opted to drop Pickford for their 2-1 loss at Newcastle, calling upon Robin Olsen instead, before recalling him for the 3-1 defeat to Manchester United.

But Southgate insisted he would stay as his first choice for the time being in the absence of a 'serious challenge' from his rivals.

'His performances have been excellent for us and so that has not been a difficult decision for me,' he said.

'We have some competition for places but I would have to say that there is nobody who I think is challenging seriously at the moment to push him out of that position.'

Dean Henderson 'keen on loan move away from Manchester United' in January to boost Euro 2020 chances with England after failing to dislodge David de Gea as Old Trafford No 1

* Dean Henderson has struggled for game time so far this season at Man United
* The keeper has played just three times, with all coming in cup competitions
* He has been unable to take the gloves from David De Gea after signing new deal
* Henderson is now reportedly keen on another loan move from Old Trafford
* The 23-year-old is keen to ensure he is picked in England squad for Euro 2020

Dean Henderson would like a loan move away from Manchester United in January to boost his chances of claiming the England No 1 jersey at Euro 2020, reports claim.

The 23-year-old goalkeeper has struggled for game time so far this season with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keeping faith with David De Gea after Henderson decided to stay at Old Trafford.

He made his senior England debut in the 3-0 friendly win over the Republic of Ireland at Wembley during the recent internationals.

Dean Henderson 'is keen on another loan move' away from Manchester United in January. The 23-year-old keeper made his England debut recently and wants to be in Euro 2020 squad

But opportunities at United have proved thin on the ground, with Henderson restricted to two outings in the Carabao Cup and the 2-1 Champions League defeat away to Istanbul Basaksehir.

And, according to The Sun, Henderson would like another loan move away from Old Trafford in January to ensure he makes Gareth Southgate's squad next summer.

Premier League duo Leeds United and Brighton, plus Championship promotion hopefuls Bournemouth, have been linked with Henderson.

Henderson (right) has been unable to dislodge David de Gea (left) as United's first choice

The stopper agreed to a new contract through until 2025 after being included in United's first team squad for the first time back in August.

But after making clear that he had designs to be United's No 1 at the time, Henderson has been left largely frustrated.

Any loan move would be Henderson's sixth since 2016. He has previously spent time on loan at Stockport County, Grimsby Town and Shrewsbury Town before two successful spells with Sheffield United.

It's a family fortune! Man United goalkeeper Dean Henderson's uncle wins £12,500 off a £25 bet on him playing for England, placed when he was just 14 years old... and his mum and gran had money on too!

* Dean Henderson made his bow for the Three Lions against Ireland this month
* His first cap landed his uncle £12,500 after making a bet when he was just 14
* Henderson was a schoolboy at Carlisle at the time before moving to Old Trafford
* Martin Plunkett said it was clear that his nephew was destined for great things

Dean Henderson's uncle has won a £12,500 bet with the bookies after backing the Manchester United goalkeeper to play for England when he was just a teenager.

Martin Plunkett decided to make the wager when Henderson was a 14-year-old at Carlisle United as he placed a £25 stake with odds of 500/1, and is now set to receive the payout after he came on against the Republic of Ireland this month.

The 23-year-old was a second half substitute for Nick Pope and helped keep the clean sheet as Gareth Southgate's men won 3-0. Henderson's mother and grandmother also won £2,500 after betting £50 each - but by that point he had already moved to United, slashing the odds.

Dean Henderson's uncle won £12,500 after the goalkeeper made his England debut this month. The 23-year-old came on as a substitute for Nick Pope in England's win over Republic of Ireland

Plunkett said the goalkeeper was 'chuffed' at the bet coming in and said he was fully deserving of his cap following a breakthrough season with Sheffield United last term.

He told the Mirror: 'I haven't spoken to Dean about the bet but he did text after the game last Thursday to tell his mother, "Have we all got the money?"

'We told him we got confirmation from William Hill that the bet was alright so yeah, he was chuffed for us. He's a good lad. He deserves it.'

Henderson spent six years with Carlisle having joined as a schoolboy before linking up with United's academy in 2011. He has risen up the youth ranks and has been sent out on loan five times before shining in two spells for Sheffield United.

Martin Plunkett bet on Henderson playing for England when he was just 14 years old at Carlisle. Henderson is currently second choice at United and is reportedly seeking a loan to become England's No 1 at the Euros next summer

Plunkett insisted his talent was clear to see even at a very young age, with many bookmakers unwilling to accept the bet.

'Anyone you ever spoke to who knew about him would tell you he'll go to the top,' he added.

'So obviously you have a little bet don't you? To be fair, it was only William Hill that would take the bet.'

Henderson was tipped to be both Manchester United and England's No 1 after some dominant displays in goal for the Blades last term, but has returned to Old Trafford as second choice to David de Gea.

He signed a new five-year deal with the Red Devils in August but has made it clear he intends to be first choice.

Recent reports have claimed he is seeking another loan away in January to boost his prospects of dethroning Pickford as England's first choice shot-stopper at next summer's Euros.

Leeds and Brighton are said to be possible destinations with time running out for him to impress Southgate.

* Speculation he might take another loan move in January have surfaced
* But Henderson was vocal and showed leadership in Southampton fightback

Football works in mysterious ways. Just as more and more stories were emerging about Dean Henderson taking another loan move away from Old Trafford in January, he could get the chance he's been waiting for.

There's a chance the 23-year-old is poised to line up in the most important match of his career so far when Manchester United face Paris Saint-Germain in a crunch Champions League clash on Wednesday.

Of course, it all depends on the severity of the knock David de Gea suffered just above his knee when he crashed into the post desperately trying to keep out a James Ward-Prowse free-kick on Sunday.

Dean Henderson celebrates as Manchester United came back from two goals down to win 3-2 at Southampton on Sunday. Henderson, who replaced the injured David de Gea at half-time, was United's most vocal

The Spaniard is set for a scan on Monday and both he and Henderson will face an anxious wait for the outcome.

But if De Gea is ruled out of Wednesday night's game at Old Trafford, then Henderson will get his long-awaited opportunity to impress and show he is United's rightful No 1.

No doubt Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Co will keep him busier than Southampton did in the second-half on Sunday, after Henderson replaced De Gea at half-time for his United Premier League debut.

A couple of early saves apart, Henderson was little more than a thrilled spectator as United launched into one of those never-say-die comebacks that used to be their hallmark.

When Edinson Cavani made it 2-2 and then headed their 92nd-minute winner, Henderson was seen leaping in celebration down the other end. Afterwards, he took to Twitter and described the fightback as 'the United way'.

De Gea is set for a scan on Monday but could miss United's crunch meeting with PSG. But it could be an opportunity at last for Henderson, who has found his game time limited

But what observers both inside the stadium and those watching on TV at home noticed was how vocal Henderson was during that second-half.

The loudest player in United colours, it was Henderson urging his team-mates to push forward in pursuit of the winner while organising things to ensure they couldn't be stung on the counter.

It didn't go unnoticed that it was his voice, rather than that of captain Harry Maguire or Bruno Fernandes, that echoed loudest around the empty St Mary's Stadium.

In a season when United have been accused of lacking leadership on the pitch, it was certainly refreshing.

'He's a keeper who has been used to being vocal. He wants to organise the team,' manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said.

Henderson had a couple of saves to make but was largely a spectator in United's comeback. It was Henderson's first outing since United's disastrous defeat away by Istanbul Basaksehir. Henderson's competition seems to have raised de Gea's game so far this season

Those qualities will prove essential if Henderson plays against PSG on Wednesday night. With the Parisians far from assured of their last-16 place, United's backline, which continues to look jittery, can expect to be put under severe pressure.

Henderson will have saves to make, there's no question of that, and if he can prove he can cut it in such a big game, the outlook may change.

When Henderson decided against a sixth loan away from United back in August, signing a new contract through until 2025, he no doubt expected a bit more game time than has materialised.

Two starts in the early rounds of the Carabao Cup, against Luton Town and Brighton, offering scant consolation for warming the bench in every Premier League game.

Henderson started the disastrous Champions League defeat by Istanbul Basaksehir, though it was his defence to blame for the embarrassment.

A mere 270 minutes of action prior to his substitute outing on Sunday wasn't quite what the England international expected at the start of the season.

Worse still, his presence seemed to have some kind of galvanising effect on De Gea, who responded to the competition by largely cutting out the errors that had infected his game.

Solskjaer kept faith with the Spaniard, who has been United's first choice keeper for nine seasons, in what was the honourable thing to do.

As former United captain Roy Keane said in the Sky Sports studio on Sunday: 'I think it helped [De Gea] that Henderson came back to the club.

'I think he's got proper competition there now. Every day, they can look each other in the eye.

'If he makes too many mistakes - as many as he's made over the last few years - he knows Henderson will be in.'

Henderson was certainly outspoken back in the summer about how he had returned to United with the intention of dislodging De Gea from his position.

It hasn't worked out that way. But now an opportunity may arise, not because De Gea made a mistake but through the misfortune of injury.

And he can't be under any illusions. Even a solid performance against PSG doesn't make him an automatic starter for Saturday's trip to West Ham if De Gea is fit again.

But it may head off suggestions Henderson will look for a loan move in January. Understandably, his concern is about his place in the England squad for next summer's European Championship.

His fellow keepers Jordan Pickford and Nick Pope are first choice for Everton and Burnley respectively but there really isn't anyone else in the wider England squad pool to push Henderson out.

Henderson made his senior England debut earlier this month in the 3-0 win over Ireland. Henderson and Nick Pope (right) are likely to be back-up to Jordan Pickford at Euro 2020

The fact Henderson made his senior debut off the bench in England's 3-0 friendly win over the Republic of Ireland - a moment that netted his uncle £12,500 after he placed a 500/1 bet when Dean was 14 - shows he is very much in Gareth Southgate's thinking for Euro 2020.

And even if Henderson does remain second choice to De Gea, there will be plenty of chances before the end of the season.

United will fancy their chances of winning the Carabao Cup and Henderson should also play their FA Cup games. If United get the point they require to make it through to the Champions League last-16, he may also play against RB Leipzig next week.

In the meantime, if De Gea's knee injury does rule him out for Wednesday, all Henderson can do is be his usual vocal self and give a good account of himself against last season's Champions League runners-up.

The rest will, sooner or later, fall nicely into place.


De Gea sedang cedera, saatnya Henderson unjuk gigi dan mencuri perhatian Ole

Dean Henderson's 'exceptional' talent was recognised by Carlisle at the age of 11 and by THIRTEEN he was training with the first team... a decade on, and with an England cap to his name, he now has the chance to stake a claim as Manchester United's No 1

* Dean Henderson made his league debut for Manchester United on Sunday
* The goalkeeper joined the club at the age of 14 after leaving local side Carlisle
* His former coaches recalled him training with their first-team when he was 13
* There has always been belief in his hometown that he would be England's No 1
* Henderson could start against PSG on Wednesday if David de Gea is injured

Usually when a young hopeful joins a club at the age Dean Henderson was picked up by Carlisle they get one-year contracts and a season to prove they deserve another.

'Dean representing Carlisle, that was the dream that we all had, myself, first-team goalkeeper coach Tony Caig and the head of youth Eric Kinder,' Ben Benson, Carlisle's former head of academy goalkeeping, recalls.

'So much so that we tied him down to a six-year contract. At under-11 we signed him until he was 16! That shows we knew we had an exceptional boy on our hands.'

Dean Henderson made his Manchester United Premier League debut against Southampton

To borrow an analogy from Benson, Manchester United and Henderson's loan clubs – Stockport, Grimsby, Shrewsbury and Sheffield United - have helped put the house together but it is at Carlisle where the foundations were laid.

Henderson, who made his long-awaited United league debut against Southampton on Sunday, initially joined Carlisle as an outfield player when his potential was spotted at a local soccer camp.

He displayed those first hints of his goalkeeping potential to a wider audience after donning the gloves at the end of one training session and continued to alternate between being a keeper and outfield player for the rest of the season. Henderson settled on being a stopper going into his under 11 season.

https://i.postimg.cc/zX59Ww4x/36305176-9005263-Hen-a-31-1606825502096.jpg (https://postimages.org/)
He joined Carlisle's academy at the age of 11 and impressed enough to get a six-year contract

Having two older brothers, Kyle and Callum, who had inadvertently prepared him for life between the sticks by pulling rank and putting him in goal during sibling knockabouts is one theory as to why Henderson took so well to being a goalkeeper at Carlisle. Benson, now goalkeeping coach at Blackburn, has another.

He said: 'He enjoyed the detail of goalkeeping, the intricacies of the position. He caught the goalkeeping bug.

'Even now we'll meet up and he'll want to go through this, have a look at this or ask 'what do you think?' That thirst for knowledge has never really left him.'

https://i.postimg.cc/Qt1yKVmL/36302916-0-image-a-3-1606821668699.jpg (https://postimages.org/)
His former coaches said the goalkeeper has always been determined to improve himself

Recalling one occasion at Carlisle that sticks in his mind, Benson said: 'He was in the under 13s, playing a year up and we played Burnley. They were notoriously a fantastic team and the score was 12-0, something like that.

'Dean comes off, frustrated, angry, bit upset, only 12 years-old and I said "Dean what's the matter I thought you did fantastic". He said '"h I thought I should have done better with the sixth goal. I should have gone with my longest hand, my top hand" etc etc.

'He said "can we stay out and do some now?" We stayed back for another half hour, 40 minutes. All he wanted to do was recreate that goal, recreate that moment and get it right in his own mind and that's one thing among other things that really sticks out. How driven he was and the ability to fail fast and fix fast. To correct and want to correct was massive for him.'

They were key attributes when Carlisle were fast-tracking his transition from outfield player to goalkeeper.

'Considering everything was quite new, his biggest asset in my opinion was his retention of information and his ability to act on it,' Benson said.

'You only had to tell him something once. He is also unbelievably headstrong and that is a fantastic trait to have in this industry. Playing the position he does you do have to have thick skin.'

Over a decade on that same desire and ability to bounce back at the earliest opportunity remains noticeable in Henderson.

https://i.postimg.cc/j2TkHK3D/36302972-0-image-a-4-1606821747834.jpg (https://postimages.org/)
Henderson has bounced back from the mistakes he has made during various loan spells. He kept two clean sheets for Sheffield United after a costly error against Liverpool last season

Following a Yorkshire derby mistake which gifted Leeds a late winner in December 2018 Henderson kept a clean sheet the next week against Reading.

After having the finger pointed at him when Sheffield United blew a three-goal lead at Aston Villa, also last season, he responded with seven successive shut-outs.

Two more clean sheets followed last season in response to a high-profile mistake against Liverpool.

'Some sports people are like that,' Caig said. 'They use little setbacks as fuel to drive them on to be better.

'Dean's attitude is he wants to prove he is the best but he's not looking for people to come out and say it, he is doing it for himself.'

Not too long after that Burnley game Benson remembers Henderson was then invited to train with Carlisle's first-team goalkeepers aged just 13, another indication of the prodigious talent on the Cumbrian's books.

Caig, now Livingston first-team coach, said: 'They [the senior keepers] were looking at me initially like 'what? 13?'

'I'm like 'yeah, when you see him you'll know what I mean! I'll let his goalkeeping do the talking.

'He was just so eager to do well and impress. He was never fazed. The way he moved, his technique, desire to keep the ball out of the net, personality and character, all of that shone through, even at that age.

'He was quick and athletic, understood the position in terms of where he needs to be and nearly all the time uses the correct technique.

'You can always get a gauge by how the other senior goalkeepers react to him and they were all like 'God, who's this kid?' and he obviously wasn't shy. He had a personality so it was just a case of time.'

Having to step and play above his age, sometimes two years, was a recurring feature of Henderson's time at Carlisle.

Benson added: 'He wasn't just the best goalkeeper in his age group, he was the best in the age above as well. That's probably the biggest compliment I could give him and gave us a really good yardstick.'

The 'keeper has impressed in the four appearances he has made in the 2020-2021 campaign

Carlisle's dream of the local lad reaching the first team never became a reality with Henderson joining United, the club he supported, in 2011

Though Carlisle's dream of the local lad reaching their first team never became a reality.

'It became quickly quite evident that was never going to happen because he was going to go before he got anywhere near our first team,' Caig said.

Newcastle were keen but when the team he supported Manchester United – first alerted to Henderson when he attended one of their soccer schools 18 months earlier – came calling in 2011 the outcome was almost inevitable.

Since returning from his second loan spell at Sheffield United in the summer, Henderson has had to wait longer than many expected for his first Premier League chance.

But it is widely considered only a matter of time before he becomes not just Manchester United's No1, but England's too.

Henderson made his senior England debut against the Republic of Ireland in November. The 23-year-old's former coaches believe he can be England and United's No 1 in the future

Both Benson and Caig were keen to stress they have played just a small part and many clubs and people deserve the credit for where Henderson is today, especially the man himself.

Benson added: 'As a county we are unbelievably proud of him. For a boy from West Cumbria, which isn't a massive footballing county, to have done what he has done very early in his career is fantastic.'

Caig added: 'What motivates Deano is himself. That desire every day to be the best and be better.

'That's why, all being well for him you can see him playing in the Premier League for the next 10-15 years and you can see him getting a lot of caps for his country.'

Dean Henderson's Bramall Lane blunder was a reminder he still has some way to go to challenge David De Gea... but late saves show youngster has potential to be special

* Dean Henderson was handed second start for Manchester United on Thursday
* Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made the bold call of playing him vs Sheffield United
* On his Bramall Lane return Henderson committed a blunder inside five minutes
* Oliver Burke pressured the ball and David McGoldrick was able to slot home

When Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke earlier this week about the ‘different demands’ he places on Dean Henderson compared to the goalkeeper’s time at Sheffield United, the ability to pass the ball out from the back was no doubt one of them.

It made what happened on his return to Bramall Lane with Manchester United on Thursday night all the more horrible for Henderson.

The 23-year-old made just one solitary mistake that led to Sheffield United conceding a goal in the Premier League last season, allowing Georginio Wijnaldum’s volley to squirm through his legs in a 1-0 defeat to Liverpool.

An early blunder on his return to Bramall Lane showed the work Dean Henderson still must do

England’s new goalkeeper took less than six minutes to make another one after being selected to start against his former club in place of David de Gea.

You sensed the Blades knew something we didn’t about their old team-mate when no fewer than four players crowded around him in the six-yard box at an early corner.

And when Henderson received a back-pass from Harry Maguire – another Blades old-boy – shortly afterwards, Oliver Burke was primed to close down the United keeper as quickly as possible.

https://i.postimg.cc/zvFwPWL2/36985444-0-image-a-2-1608245169066.jpg (https://postimages.org/)
Oliver Burke closed down Henderson after routine back-pass, causing him to quickly panic. The young 'keeper spilled the ball out as far as David McGoldrick who slotted it home. Henderson and another former Blade Harry Maguire could only watch on as the goal went in

He succeeded, taking advantage of Henderson’s indecision to block the clearance and then touch the ball for David McGoldrick to score in an empty net.

It was an awful moment for Henderson and his manager who made the decision to hand United’s No.2 keeper only his second league start for the club since returning from two impressive seasons on loan at Bramall Lane.

It’s not as if Henderson didn’t know what was coming either. ‘If we think we can just roll in here and take three points easily we’ve got another thing coming,’ he said before kick-off. ‘Sheffield United are going to come flying out of the traps.’

Henderson played a part in United’s equaliser on his only other start at West Ham 12 days earlier when VAR couldn’t prove that his booming clearance went out of play before Bruno Fernandes set up Paul Pogba to score.

But he got himself into a real muddle here. To be fair, he had little chance with McGoldrick’s second and then pulled off a fine save from Lys Mousset to preserve the win. But the image of that first goal will endure.

We have heard a lot about Henderson and how he will not be happy sitting on the bench. There is no shortage of self-confidence.

Since rejoining United in the summer, he has signed a new contract, made his Champions League debut and become a senior England international.

But this was a reminder to us all that Henderson still has some work to do before he can be considered a real threat to De Gea.


mungkin diawal pertandingan agak gugup karena 2 musim dipinjamkan ke Sheffield sekarang malah harus jadi lawan. jangan blunder lagi Henderson, kalo gak susah nih mau dimainkan jadi starter, bakal makin susah menggeser De Gea sbg kiper utama
