He’s the captain, the main man, the guy who the other players will look to for inspiration when the chips are down.
Many LFC fans were sceptical about Henderson when he took over from Steven Gerrard at the start of last season. They didn’t doubt that he was a good player, we all saw what he could do in the previous season, with some high-level performances, but they just weren’t sure if he was the one to take the reigns of Liverpool’s favourite son, who had captained the Reds for so long.
Jordan experienced a terrible season last year, missing out on many games due to a recurring injury in his knee. The injury prevented him from asserting his influence on the team as much as he would have liked, he just couldn’t get enough minutes on the pitch.
It was a real shame for Liverpool fans, as they were hoping to see him kick on from a promising 14/15 season, but he only played a bit-part role in truth. His passion, desire and high work rate will be necessary next season in helping Liverpool to launch a viable bid for the title.
