Jordan Henderson will go down as one of our best ever captains by the time he hangs them up, I have to be honest here, I among others said that he simply wasn’t good enough to be in the side never mind captain, and I have to say that humble pie tastes f***in fantastic,
He has not only surpassed most of our expectations he has been absolutely outstanding as a player and to those who he leads, he isn’t or will never be a Liverpool great in the mold of a Gerrard, Dalglish a Souness or a Hansen, all those greats had their own traits and all had their own way of captaining those they led, and to be honest comparing them with each other isn’t at all very sporting and is slightly disrespectful,
Jordan Henderson is Jordan Henderson, he has his own way of being skipper, and so far he has been totally brilliant, for a player a certain bacon faced MUtant said would never be good enough, he has proved all his doubters completely wrong, including some of us,
As a player he has improved tremendously under Jürgen and can play in several positions with aplomb, he is vocal and can dish out the verbals in equal measure, we have seen how much respect he holds in the professional game receiving plaudits from his peers not only from the EPL but across Europe too, and he is equally brilliant off pitch with his charity work, simply put he is a outstanding human being and a really sound fella, it certainly couldn’t have been easy to evolve as a genuine Red from being a Makem, I’ve ran out of superlatives for Jordan, he’s simply a fantastic Skipper and long may that continue.
In the coming months/seasons I think it’s safe to say we will be seeing more of the Hendo shuffle !
