Gary Neville doubts whether one player has what it takes to play for Man Utd long term


Manchester United will have a decision to make over the future of their goalkeepers in the close season.

Manchester United legend Gary Neville admits there are doubts over whether Dean Henderson has what it takes to replicate his Sheffield United form at his parent club. Some pundits and former United players have called on Henderson to become the Red Devils No 1 next season following the drop off in form of David de Gea. Henderson has spent the last two seasons on loan at Sheffield United and has impressed in his first campaign in the Premier League.

Neville said on Sky Sports: “What I don’t buy into is the idea that Dean Henderson at Sheffield United, obviously from Manchester United on loan, can just go into that goal mouth here in front of the Stretford End and adapt to what the demands are of a Manchester United goalkeeper.
