Not too shabby for a player once told by old f***in bacon face he wasn’t good enough, We almost lost him too had Rogers got his way, Jordan Henderson is nothing short of a actual living legend, and that’s just his playing career, off the pitch he’s a incredible human being, his charity work is well documented and he has the respect from all the other captains in the EPL and around Europe,
He has had to work his nads off to get where he is now, I can remember the criticism he would get on a regular basis and if im honest I probably was critical too, but he stuck to his guns and won round those who slated him almost on a weekly basis, then when Ste retired and Hendo got the armband we started to see the real Jordan Henderson, and the rest his history….
I don’t think there is a player since October 2015 who hasn’t improved while working under Jürgen, and Hendo is no exception, in fact I’d argue that we do not operate as smoothly when Jordan doesn’t play, we don’t have the same balance, the ground he covers is unbelievable, he allows Trent to bomb forward without fear knowing Hendo has his back, his assists has improved as too has his passing, he reads the game better than most and pitches in with a few goals too, he may not be as good a player as Gerrard was, but in terms of captaincy he’s every bit as good, and that is the biggest compliment I can think of to give him, he had Massive boots to fill, and he’s done so with aplomb.
Congratulations Jordan Henderson,
You are a credit to your profession, a credit to your peers and to LFC, and a credit to humanity .
