Steve Cooper reacts to Manchester United’s decision to loan Dean Henderson

With David De Gea struggling at Brentford the same weekend as Dean Henderson flourished for Nottingham Forest, much has been made about Manchester United’s decision-making when it comes to the goalkeeper department.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Forest boss Steve Cooper gave his thoughts on the matter.

“It’s not something I think about. As soon as we knew there was a chance he would come, we were committed to trying to make it happen and we did. My focus is on his day-to-day work at Nottingham Forest and what impact he can have on the team.
