Ten Hag has concerns over De Gea’s limitations

Erik ten Hag has concerns about David de Gea’s limitations as a goalkeeper. Yes, he was one of the best shot stoppers in the world, but we might see a change in first choice goalkeeper over the next year.

According to ESPN, Ten Hag was aware of De Gea’s faults as a keeper before the start of the season, especially when he is being asked to play out from the back. The new manager decided to stick with the Spaniard because Dean Henderson went out on loan.

Ten Hag also feared that too many changes in his first summer would cause disruption – but he didn’t think at the time that we would lose our first two games of the season against Brighton & Hove Albion and Brentford.

Rob Dawson reports: “Sources added United are looking to sign another goalkeeper to compete with De Gea before the transfer deadline on Sept. 1, but they expect Henderson, who has impressed already at Forest, to return to Old Trafford at the end of the season and compete for the No. 1 spot.”

Henderson was desperate for first team football this season after making just three appearances last term. The player’s frustration was well found, and he will be aiming to come back from Nottingham Forest as a better keeper to take the role from De Gea.

As a result of Henderson leaving, United have been linked with back-up options like Yann Sommer.

Let us know in the comments section if you think Henderson has what it takes to be United’s future No. 1.
