Dean Henderson said, “Zlatan [Ibrahimović], this guy hits the ball so hard, I’ve never seen someone hit it so hard in my life. To go up against him in training every day was fantastic.”
“As a young boy growing up as a Manchester United fan that was something I was inspired to do, for me it was great and I always remember that well.”
Dean Henderson also explained how he wants to connect with Manchester United fans. “I think it’s important to get that connection with your fans. I wear my heart on my sleeve for every football club I’ve played for and I do what I can to the best of my ability to help that team.”- he said.
“They’ve been great for me and hopefully I’ve been good for them and that’s something that really excites me about what connection I can build with the Man United fans.”- Dean added.
