Jordan Henderson

Recommended Posts

He's a story of persistence, proving people wrong and fighting for everything he's achieved. He may not be Steven Gerrard but he's Jordan Henderson, proof that sometimes underdogs prosper.

Some accolade this!

 

Flamengo manager Jorge Jesus has lauded Jordan Henderson by describing the Liverpool captain as the best midfielder in the world. 

Jesus saw Henderson up close when Liverpool defeated Jesus' Flamengo side 1-0 in the Club World Cup final. 

The Reds needed extra time to be crowned world champions with Roberto Firmino scoring the winning goal in the 99th minute during the December fixture.

Despite Firmino's goalscoring exploits, it was Henderson who stole the attention of Jesus which has led to the Flamengo manager's praise. 

Jesus told CMTV: 'Henderson is the best midfielder in the world in his position.

'[Jurgen Klopp] never drops him, but the two offensive midfielders, [Naby] Keita and [Georginio] Wijnaldum, sometimes are replaced.

'The others players are always the same.'

Henderson looks set to become the first Liverpool captain to lift the Premier League title this season as Jurgen Klopp's side are 13 points clear of second-placed Leicester with a game in hand. 

The 29-year-old is also a key member of Gareth Southgate's England side and is likely to start for the Three Lions next summer during the European Championship.

Henderson's Liverpool face a tricky trip to face Jose Mourinho's Tottenham on Saturday and then host rivals Manchester United next Sunday as they continue their quest to win their first Premier League title.

Apparently this fella has not seen us play much over the last year to not realize Fabinho has been in that role pretty much every game.

The clean sheets started this season when Henderson went there though!

Harry Kane could miss the euros which would mean Hendo captioning England. For the first time ever I would want them to win just to witness the fume of Henderson lifting every trophy worth lifting in 12 months.

As long as we get to see more Hendo tippy taps I'm happy.

I think that’s kinda of the point. He always plays Hendo regardless, in any combo.

    • Few rumours on Ye Old Twitter that Mickey the Hacker has got this across the line. We’ll see.
    • Well that’s just bollocks as Rafa had left the club before Comolli had joined. 
    • Jurgen Klopp has given little credence to those individuals who are using any possible reason to downplay the achievements of Liverpool this season.

      The Reds are just four wins away from their first league triumph in three decades, and are on the verge of wrapping up the title in the quickest period of time in the modern era, currently holding a 22 point lead over Man City.

      But as recent games against relegation threatened sides such as Norwich and West Ham have shown, there is certainly no such thing as a easy win.

      The fact that this team has only dropped points once this campaign is remarkable, however there is a theory around that it is to do with the failings of their main rivals, not so much the overall strength of Liverpool.

      Speaking ahead of the game against Watford on Saturday evening, Klopp was having none of that.

      The Daily Mail reported the manager as saying:

      “I couldn't care less (what people say).

      “Look, it is completely normal. 

      “I don't think that we should have any concern for things like this. If other people think like that – if they think City are not as good as they were – they ARE!

      “They have scored a little less goals than us, conceded a few more, and if you look why it is clear they have been missing some players. 

      “The other teams are really strong too. 

      “Yes, Bayern beat Tottenham and Chelsea [in the Champions League] but they are really strong over a season.

      “Yes, they (Spurs and Chelsea) have had some problems, that's all true. 

      “But in the moment that you play them you don't feel that they have these problems.

      “The points they have, we have no influence on that apart from the games when we play them.

      “So it says nothing about the quality of the Premier League, especially when you look at City v Real Madrid. 

      “I know that people look at these things and you saw that one of the best teams in the world maybe in the moment and City were clearly better so that shows as well how strong the League is.  

      Despite the outstanding consistency and success of the past two seasons, Klopp is certainly not one to rest on his laurels and be content.

      “There is still a lot of work to do and a lot of space for improvement.

      “You see our games and result wise it looks okay but performance-wise there is a lot of space for improvement. 

      “That is what we work on and try constantly through the week.

      “Result consistency is maybe difficult to improve because that is close to perfection, obviously, but it is possible to improve the performances in all departments. 

      “There are so many things you can improve that that will never end.”
