So far this season, David de Gea has been named Man United’s player of the year, whereas Dean Henderson has only made three appearances for the club.
There will be no decision on Dean Henderson’s Manchester United future until the summer, according to Ralf Rangnick.
After appearing in 26 games last season and temporarily establishing himself as the team’s first-choice goalkeeper, Henderson will turn 25 next month and has only participated in three games this season.
United goalkeeper David de Gea, 31, has stated that he has no intention of leaving the club, which he joined in 2011. A record-breaking sixth Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year accolade is expected for the Spaniard.
Henderson has a deal that runs through 2025 with United, while De Gea has a deal that runs through 2023 with an option for an extra year. Rangnick was asked if there was acceptance at United that the England international had to be sold, to which Henderson replied: “I’m ready to leave permanently.” “In the summer, those were issues that should have been resolved.
In the immediate future, “my and our attention is on the forthcoming games, and those kind of issues surrounding goalkeepers and other players are matters for this summer and the time following the season.”
On Saturday, United play the rematch of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s final Premier League game against Watford at Old Trafford in the reverse fixture. Solskjaer was fired the morning after United’s 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Watford on November 20, and Michael Carrick served as interim manager for the next ten days.
The Red Devils have lost just once in the Premier League since Solskjaer was fired in December, after being beaten five times throughout his tenure. United have won eight and drawn seven of their first 16 games under Rangnick, but they have only scored two or more goals in five of those games, and Rangnick has emphasized that they must do better in that department.
“At the time, Ole had suffered five defeats in the previous seven games, and it was clear that morale and confidence were low,” Rangnick added. “In order to qualify for the Champions League knockout stages, Michael Carrick and his coaching staff produced two strong Premier League results and one critical away win against Villarreal.
“Once the team was stable, it was my responsibility to reduce the number of goals we allowed. While we’ve improved since then, our scoring output hasn’t been as high as it was when they were conceding over two goals per game.
“We want to move forward faster as a manager, so this is the next phase, and we’ll work hard to improve our resiliency and consistency not only within games but also from one game to the next.
With the help of the team, “This is the next step we aim to take.”
