Chris Wilder thinks it would be “morally correct” for Man Utd to allow Sheffield United to keep Dean Henderson on loan until the season is concluded.
Henderson has been in fine form on loan at Sheffield United from Man Utd this season (making Jamie Carragher’s team of the season) and has been touted as replacing David de Gea on his return to his parent club.
The 23-year-old has kept an impressive ten clean sheets for the Blades this season, and was expected to be named in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the friendlies against Italy and Denmark before those games were postponed.
There are no guarantees that the Premier League season will restart, but if Sheffield United win their game in hand they would move above Man Utd in the Premier League table.
Fifth place could be enough to qualify for the Champions League this season if Manchester City’s two-year Champions League ban is upheld and The Sun claimed on Wednesday that Man Utd faced a ‘moral dilemma’ over Henderson.
However, Wilder hopes they make the “morally correct” decision and allow him to stay at Sheffield United for the rest of the campaigm.
“It’d be morally correct to leave him playing at Sheffield United for the last ten games of the season,” Wilder told beIN Sports.
“Although we all know that because of the legalities and the situation regarding expiry of loans, United might take that decision.
“But we’re not a threat to Man U so I’m sure they’ll be quite happy with the players that they’ve got to see them through the season. The Ford Fiesta ain’t going to get past the Ferrari!”
