“I’ll be moving back in the first day of pre-season and sweating my b******s off to get in that starting line-up because it’s something I’ve constantly required and I’m so close now. I have tremendous respect for David. He has been a magnificent goalkeeper for many years.
He’s been remarkable and that’s something I strive to be, to have a profession like his at the club. It’s down to me but I’m beneath no fantasies that I’m going to develop just sat on the bench. I need that game-time.” said Henderson.
Unfortunately, De Gea’s form has come into inquest over the last two seasons, while Henderson prospered with the Blades. It continues to be seen which goalkeeper Ole will choose as his No.1 for the start of the new campaign.
“I know what difficulties are advancing and I’m well up for it. I want to represent England and I want to play for Manchester United and so I’m just going to keep fighting hard every single day, defeating my little challenges, my little goals, and I’m sure one day I’ll get to where I want to be.” added the English goalkeeper.
