Chris Wilder seemingly split opinion this weekend as he refused to defend Dean Henderson after he dropped a clanger against Liverpool in the Blades’ 1-0 loss to the Reds on Saturday.
Some commenters were critical of the way Wilder treated the young goalkeeper, while others were completely behind the manager’s tactics.

Darren Bent gave his opinion on the incident on Sky Sports, and it’s clear to see which side of the fence he sits on.
The former Tottenham striker said that he believes Wilder was right to treat his goalkeeper in that way as he clearly made a mistake.
Bent says that he can understand his frustrations because the Blades had played so well.
He’s absolutely right too, as a draw against title contenders could have been huge for the Yorkshire club, but in the end, they’ve come away with nothing.
Henderson doesn’t seem to be too affected by the treatment he received from his manager as he took to Instagram in the week to ensure fans that he would come back even stronger.
