Former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel rubbishes ideas that Dean Henderson is all set to usurp David de Gea as the primary at Old Trafford.
Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel has actually rubbished ideas that Dean Henderson is all set to usurp David de Gea as the primary goalkeeper at Old Trafford.
De Gea’s future position as first option has actually come under examination over the past 2 projects, with the Spaniard having actually made a joint league- high variety of mistakes leading straight to goals because the start of last season.
Henderson, by contrast, has actually kept 10 tidy sheets in the Premier League this term to assist unfancied Sheffield United push for a European area while boasting the second- best defensive record in the league.
The Englishman has actually been on loan at Bramall Lane for the past 2 seasons and is due to return to moms and dad club Man United at completion of the existing campaign, however Schmeichel does not thinks that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will seriously thinking about making him his primary above De Gea.
“Would anyone seriously consider not having David De Gea in goal and put Dean Henderson in now? There’s no doubt about Henderson’s potential, but he’s played one season at a club who has had an unbelievable run in the Premier League. They’ve managed to combine an old-school way of thinking into a new-school way of thinking, staying true to Sheffield United and what kind of club it is,” Schmeichel stated during an Instagram Live video.
” However Henderson will need to show another season, like he’s simply come through, and after that another one, and another one, in order to encourage everybody that he is the right man. There’s an actually big distinction in between being the primary at Bramall Lane and being the primary at Old Trafford, an actually big distinction. Even simply being a player at those 2 clubs.
” I have actually seen a great deal of people enter Old Trafford with great credibilities, goalscorers, and they have not been able to do what they assured to do, with efficiencies and skill. That’s just since the pressures at Old Trafford are various, simply various, you understand.
” Simply as an example, if Henderson slips up– and I can just keep in mind one he made against Liverpool – it’s ‘oh yeah however he’s young and blah and skilled blah blah’, since he plays for Sheffield United. If he makes that error at Old Trafford, for Manchester United, then it’s headings and it’s all week till he plays the next game, where they question his capability to be the primary.
” That’s what you have to handle. That’s what the distinction is in between playing for clubs like United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea, and after that playing for the other clubs. The pressures, the outside pressures, are so various. If you slip up playing for Sheffield United, well, fine, it’s what occurs, you’re not anticipated to win every game.
“But you are when you’re playing for the bigger clubs. So let’s see how he develops and keep an eye on him. But it’s far too early. So the question: De Gea or Henderson? There’s really only one answer to that.”
Henderson has actually been with Man United because 2011 however is yet to make a single look for the senior team.
