Man United shot-stopper Dean Henderson is out of the European Championships with injury.

The Dean Henderson vs David de Gea battle for the starting berth at Manchester United was an interesting one. It seemed like when someone looked in control, they’d make a mistake, leaving the door ajar for the other.

As we stand right now, I’m still not sure who Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has the most trust in. However, Henderson’s task to start the season as United’s first-choice keeper just became even harder.

The United star has been dealt a cruel injury blow, with Henderson ruled out of EURO 2020 with injury. He’ll now return to the Reds, the official club site has today confirmed.

It’s a hip problem that is troubling Henderson, which explains why he wasn’t on the bench for England’s opener against Croatia on Sunday. Apparently, he was forced to work indoors away from the squad, while it has since been discovered his involvement in training would be ‘limited’ for the remainder of the tournament – so it made sense to send him home.

He’ll now follow COVID-19 protocols, before heading back to Old Trafford to continue his rehabilitation.

No timeframe has been placed upon his return, though if it’s going to be affecting him for the rest of the EURO’s, which ends in mid-July, I would be surprised if Henderson is feeling 100% when the season starts in August.

I guess now it’s about getting over the disappointment quickly, looking to get back fit as soon as possible and rebuilding the confidence so he can come back to United with a point to prove.

Get well soon, Hendo!
