Former England goalkeeper David Seaman has claimed Manchester United goalie Dean Henderson may have to leave the club sooner rather than later, if he wants to become the England no.1.
Speaking exclusively on the new Target Men Podcast. this is what Seaman said:
“If Dean Henderson wants any chance of becoming England keeper, then he needs to play more football.
“If he becomes Manchester United’s number one, then he’s a real threat to Jordan Pickford and I think he’ll probably leapfrog Nick Pope. He’s got the experience from his time at Sheffield [United]. So, he’s got all the experience he needs, he just needs playing time, so if it’s not at Man United, then I think he really needs to go somewhere else.”
The United academy graduate had a two-year successful loan spell at Sheffield United before returning back to the club in the summer.
The Englishman has played second fiddle to David De Gea since returning. The Spaniard’s struggles has led to many calling for him to takeover as United no.1.
