You must have heard of Sheffield United’s Dean Henderson?
We are not Carlo Ancelotti has! So if you meet him, do pass on the message please that Henderson, the Manchester United goalkeeper on loan at Sheffield United is in incredible form and is only 20 years old.
He is probably already the best English goalkeeper in the current circuit. So who does Ancelotti think is the best? Why his own custodian Jordan Pickford.
“To be England’s number one is a responsibility,” Ancelotti said at his pre-match press conference. “He deserves it as I think he is the best keeper that England has.
“I am not afraid about the critics. In the game against Crystal Palace he made a mistake but he also did a fantastic save. This is the job of the goalkeeper.
“Unfortunately you can make a mistake but after that you need to have the personality to move on quickly, and he did.
“For this reason, not just his quality, he is the goalkeeper of the national team.”
Everton are a team struggling to get things done. They are out of European spots at the moment despite spending heavily and behind the likes of Sheffield who are in the top 4 race with Henderson backing the goal.
