Dean Henderson has accused Manchester United of rowing back on a promise that he would be the club’s No 1 goalkeeper last season in an explosive interview. Henderson has joined Nottingham Forest on loan for the campaign and has claimed being forced to sit in reserve at Old Trafford last season was ‘criminal’.
Henderson had emerged as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-choice goalkeeper in 2020-21 but an injury meant that David de Gea started the season. The 25-year-old failed to make a single Premier League appearance last term.
De Gea played in the majority of the Red Devils' matches across all competitions, with Henderson featuring just three times in the cups. He has now candidly explained that he wasted a campaign after rejecting several loan moves in the summer of 2021, insisting he had been promised he would start.
"I turned so many good loans down last summer for that reason (being told he would be No 1), and they wouldn't let me go. It was frustrating. To sit there and waste 12 months is criminal really, at my age. I was fuming,” the former Sheffield United loanee, now on loan at Nottingham Forest, told talkSPORT.
