The ex-Red Devils boss has talked up the Englishman’s “incredible self-confidence”, but also warns the shot-stopper is “not yet phenomenal”

Jose Mourinho thinks Dean Henderson is “ready” to replace David De Gea as Manchester United’s No 1 goalkeeper.

Henderson returned to Old Trafford last summer after a successful two-year loan spell at Sheffield United, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having promised to give him the opportunity to stake his claim for the first choice role.

The United boss was true to his word as he handed the talented young shot-stopper 26 appearances in all competitions last term, and Mourinho believes he is now primed to take De Gea’s spot on a permanent basis.
