Former England goalkeeper David James believes that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should pick Dean Henderson as Manchester United’s no.1 next season.
“I would go Henderson, he’s 23 and at Premier League level he’s obviously shown that he can perform, with Sheffield United and also now a number of occasions with Manchester United,” James told Goal.
“There’s some getting used to playing for Manchester United, which is slightly different to playing for Sheffield United, but the capability that he’s already got and the potential that he has is far greater than what David de Gea offers.
“De Gea isn’t a bad goalkeeper, it’s not about that. I just think from a manager’s perspective, you’re looking at where the club’s going to go forward.
“De Gea has been phenomenal for Manchester United, but to stay performing at that level is so difficult. I think with the Dean Henderson there’s an opportunity there for Manchester United to go forward.”
Do you agree with James that Dean Henderson should be our no.1 goalkeeper ahead of De Gea?
