Jordan Henderson is finally creating his legacy as Liverpool captain

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has made his mark as Reds captain in 2019.

The 29-year-old midfielder has lifted three trophies with the club throughout the year.

Since taking the captain’s armband in 2015, Henderson has struggled to live up to the achievements of his predecessor Steven Gerrard.

That is no longer the case after a fantastic year that will see him go down as a Liverpool legend.

The current Reds skipper has been the focal point of a lot of stick over the years. Despite always putting a good shift in, many believed he wasn’t cut out to wear the Liverpool armband.

However, that talk has died over the past year. He has been truly immense week in, week out for Jurgen Klopp. In 2019 he has led Liverpool to three trophies and played a massive role in each final.

On Saturday, he was even able to create a piece of Liverpool history. After the Reds beat Flamengo, he became the first Liverpool player in the club’s long and storied history to lift the Club World Cup.

In 2020, he will hope to again make Liverpool history by becoming the first man to lift the Premier League title. The Reds captain could well be the player who actually leads up to the long sought-after trophy and puts an end to our 30-year league title drought.

Whatever you think of Henderson, his legacy is already secured. The boy from Sunderland will eventually leave Merseyside a legend and maybe even one of our most celebrated players ever if this side continues to win every trophy in sight.
