Simon Jordan really doesn’t seem to like Nottingham Forest. His latest TalkSPORT outburst has seen him take aim at goalkeeper Dean Henderson.

It was only a few months ago that he was calling Steve Cooper a bridesmaid. Just last month, he took a swipe at Jesse Lingard for supposedly ruining his career for daring to join Forest.

Now, he’s got another player in his crosshairs. Henderson is renowned for grabbing crosses out of the sky but now he’s grabbed the headlines for an attack on Manchester United.

Yesterday, he claimed that the Red Devils gave him false promises. Suggesting that it was ‘criminal’ that he wasn’t allowed on loan last season and robbed of first-team football.

Jordan doesn’t think he has a point. He thinks the goalkeeper needs to grow up, shut up and focus on playing football instead of bemoaning a lack of opportunities.

He told TalkSPORT: “He has a right to express his disappointment but where he’s gone over the line, where he suggests everyone is supposed to feel sorry for Dean Henderson.

“The fact is he wasn’t able to displace David De Gea. That’s his responsibility, nobody else’s.

“Grow up you child, you’re in a fabulous football club, earning a fabulous wage, get on with it!”

Jordan takes aim at Henderson and now he has a point to prove

The Forest stopper has definitely ruffled some feathers with his latest interview ahead of the news season. It’s nice, however, that a footballer has the desire to play; rather than sit on a sizeable wage and do very little.

Jordan has perhaps missed the point with this. It seems clear that any little Forest snippet that TalkSPORT can pick up on makes for a great chance to stick the boot in.

It’s fair to say that Henderson has now placed the ball firmly in the court. He’s let all of last season’s frustration out and now it’s up to him to prove just how good he is.

If the 25-year-old does make a few errors, Jordan will perhaps rear his head on air once again. If Henderson plays a blinder, however, the pundit might be forced to eat his words regarding the Forest stopper.
