The 21-year-old put in a stellar display against France, saving a penalty from United target Moussa Dembele
Some Manchester United fans have called for David De Gea to be sold after Dean Hendersons incredible performance against France.
The England Under-21 shot-stopper was in inspired form at the European Championships in Italy, denying Moussa Dembele from the spot in the first half.
And, just moments later, the 21-year-old made a brilliant save from the United target when faced in a one-on-one situation.
Given speculation about De Geas future at Old Trafford and his reported move to Paris Saint-Germain, fans are understandably anxious.
But Hendersons performance put plenty at ease, while his comments about playing for the Red Devils will also go some way to earning the respect of Red Devils everywhere.
Asked about being called a Premier League goalkeeper, he said: “It sounds unbelievable.
“That was the dream as a kid growing up, what you always aspire to be. You always watch Premier League Years on the telly and to know that could be me next year, I cant wait.
“Whether that is at Manchester United, Sheffield United, wherever, Im good enough to be a Premier League goalkeeper. I deserve that chance.
“Its a tough one to say where. But do I think I should be playing at Manchester United now? Yes I do.
“I think I am good enough and I would help the team a lot, in a positive way.

“If not there, Im sure I could go back to Sheffield United, play a season and then Ill prove to Manchester United what they are missing.”
While at Bramall Lane, Henderson kept 21 clean sheets as he helped the Blades secure automatic promotion.
And although a return on loan has been touted, his desire to play for Manchester United is clear for all to see.
He added: “I would give my right leg to play for that football club.
“That has been my dream since I was a little boy, being a fan. I just know Im working hard in the background and waiting for any little opportunity that comes up.
“If it does, I will take it for the next 10 to 15 years.”

Dean Henderson should be Manchester Uniteds number one goalkeeper next season. Much better with the ball at his feet than de Gea and a far more commanding figure in the penalty box.
