Dean Henderson, a goalkeeper for Manchester United, has been ruled out of this week’s training camp in Scotland. So, in news of football live today, Henderson is out of United’s Scotland training camp on account of his health.
The 24-year-old had to miss England’s Euro 2020 campaign due to a hip injury a few days into the tournament.
Henderson then tested positive for the virus a few weeks ago but he is still recovering.
Indeed, the club has even confirmed that he is experiencing “prolonged fatigue” as a result of the illness.
So, while he has fully recovered from the setback of a weak hip, there is now some ongoing, post-COVID fatigue.
And this exhaustion in the wake of recovering from coronavirus is another significant setback.
It has compelled him to miss crucial training sessions ahead of what could be a defining season for him.
Football Live Today – Henderson Is Out of United’s Scotland Training Camp
The Manchester United goalkeeper will miss training in Scotland due to the long-term effects of contracting COVID-19 earlier this summer.
His absence, for the time being, casts doubt on his ability to return in time for when the season starts.
Regardless of this reasonable skepticism, a club statement stated that Henderson is ‘expected to be training again soon’.
Meanwhile, United’s final pre-season friendly against Everton is on Saturday. Also, the start of the Premier League season against Leeds is less than two weeks away.
With United’s best football player in goalkeeping last season, Dean Henderson, out, David de Gea is in pole position currently.
De Gea, anyway first in line at Old Trafford, may return (replacing Henderson) this season as Manchester United’s number one.
As such, Henderson will really have to fight tooth and nail for playing time this coming season. Besides coming second to De Gea, the goalkeeper also has to worry about other first-team keepers, including newly-signed Tom Heaton.
