Exclusive: Matt Murray on Dean Henderson’s Manchester United decision

Manchester United started their season with a victory over Chelsea at home - what was the score?

He said: “Yeah, I think all in all, as long as he gets enough game time to keep [him] in the England squad and it’s a fair fight with [David] De Gea, then I think he has made the right decision.”

During his career working his way through the youth ranks at United, Henderson has had numerous loan deals at different clubs.

In the 2019/20 season, Henderson earned himself a respectable season rating of 6.72/10 for his performances in the 36 league appearances he made for Chris Wilder’s side (per WhoScored).

Back in August, when the shot-stopper returned to Manchester, he signed a new six-year contract at the club keeping him at Old Trafford that will reportedly see him earn £120k a week until 2026.

Henderson recently played in United’s 3-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion in the Carabao Cup in which he earned himself a solid match rating of 7.02/10 (per WhoScored).

This latest performance from Henderson proved that he has what it takes to provide good competition to David de Gea as United’s main goalkeeper.

Moving forward, it’ll be interesting to see just how many appearances the Englishman, who is currently valued at £18 million, will make for United throughout the remainder of the season.
