Roma coach, Jose Mourinho, has confirmed that Dean Henderson would be ready to be Manchester United’s outright No1.
Henderson and David de Gea are still battling to be United’s long-term first-choice.
Former United manager Mourinho told The Times: “I think they are good goalkeepers. I don’t think they are phenomenal goalkeepers or, in Dean Henderson’s case, not yet phenomenal.
“When I say not yet, I say he will be. I met him at [Manchester] United when he was a kid and I always remember him asking me to go on loan. He was saying when I come back, I come back to be the No 1.
“He told me that when he was the fourth choice. He is a kid with an incredible self confidence and I think he is ready.”
