Henderson: United means the world to me
Earlier this week, goalkeeper Dean Henderson signed a new contract that will keep him at Manchester United until 2025, with the option to extend for a further year.
“Yeah, I’m absolutely delighted. It’s something I’ve been working towards for a few years now. I’ve just kept putting the pieces together, worked hard and I’m delighted to be sat back in the building with a new five-year contract, with an option for a sixth year, in front of me. So I’m delighted.”
Henderson: It's a dream come trueVideo
“Oh yeah, they know that since the age of 14 and moving down to Manchester into digs, that this was where I wanted to be. For them as well, it’s a special day and for me it’s phenomenal. It’s a dream come true.”
“That would mean the world to me. Everything I’ve done is to put myself in the position to do that. I’ve worked so hard behind the scenes and had to take different pathways to get to where I want to be today. I’m sat here now, thinking about the next step and obviously that Man United debut would be something I’ll be very proud of and something I’ll never, ever forget, if it comes – when it comes! I've always wanted to win trophies with this great football club and I'm a very ambitious young man. For me to come here and get so close, it's about winning titles with the biggest club in the world, to me. Hopefully, we can get back to doing that soon.”
“Ah yeah, 100 per cent. Obviously to play for England as well, as I say, it would be a very special moment for myself and that’s something I’ve always wanted to do as well. If I get the nod there, that would be outstanding. I’m just going to keep working hard and I’m sure my time will come.”
“Yeah, obviously I can’t wait to get back in and I know them well. David De Gea has had an unbelievable career at the football club and it wasn’t so long ago I was saying, if I could replicate that career one day I would be a very proud man. So to learn off him and the other two top goalkeepers within the department would be great. I am really looking forward to it.”
