United told to bring back Henderson
Manchester United have been encouraged to bring Dean Henderson back to Old Trafford this summer in a make-or-break situation for David De Gea.
De Gea has been subject to more criticism since his latest high-profile errors in the FA Cup semi-final defeat by Chelsea at Wembley, with many fans wanting to see Sheffield United loanee Henderson – who has been linked with the Blues – kept at the club this summer and installed as the new no1.
Speaking to Betfair, former United striker Dimitar Berbatov said: “If United decide to bring back Dean Henderson from Sheffield United, I think that will do De Gea good.
“Players need that competition and Henderson is doing tremendously well in my opinion.
“Henderson is 23, which for a goalkeeper is still very young, he’s got a lot of football ahead of him, but you can see that he is hungry to play and I think the competition he could bring to De Gea could be the difference maker, or breaker.
“Sometimes when you feel to secure in your position that is the moment when you start making mistakes.
“It’s the same with outfield players, when you think you are untouchable you make more mistakes because you are over-confident.”
For now, De Gea appears to retain the faith of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and started tonight’s penultimate Premier League clash against West Ham at Old Trafford.
