He left Manchester United on loan for Nottingham Forest after failing to cement his place in the starting eleven. 

Erik Ten Hag decided to stick with De Gea for the season even though Dean Henderson saves penalties better than the Spanish goalkeeper. Hence, Henderson had to join Nottingham Forest on loan.

Henderson’s Career Success

The goalkeeper has not had quite a nice career as he has always played in the Championship. His success story began after he was awarded goalkeeper of the season by Sheffield United. Other successes were winning the FA Cup title with Manchester United and the U-20 World Cup with England.

Dean Henderson Strength and weakness

Dean is good at saving close-range shots and making penalty saves. He does not get distracted easily and can save a long range shot.

Strikers have always bullied him on set pieces. Managers now see that overcrowding Dean can make him fall easily because of his lack of strength.

He also needs to work on mental strength and focus. Henderson’s ability to maintain focus for long stretches when he is not involved has been called into question.

On the national level, he helped Spain win the European Under-21 trophy in 2011 and 2013. He won the under-17 European Championship in 2007.

De Gea’s Strength and Weaknesses
His reflection, ability to save with his legs and concentration are his major strengths. He is very weak at commanding the 18-yard box and makes it very difficult for defenders to proceed, also conceding easily from set pieces.

Another problem is the inability to play from the back and poor long passes.
