“To be fair to Roy, he can say what he wants about me,” Henderson told reporters.
“He gave me my debut and I wouldn’t be here without him giving me that. He can say whatever he wants about me. I found it quite funny, actually.
“So, yeah, listen, we know a little bit more detail, I know more detail and so does the manager, which Roy may not.
“But in terms of stuff like that, everyone’s going to have an opinion, everybody’s going to think they know better than everybody else.
“But for me, all my focus has been on the last couple of months is working as hard as I possibly can to be in a position where I can contribute in the tournament. And I’m very thankful I’m in that position now.”
