Liverpool fans drooling over Jordan Henderson Champions League video

Liverpool have had many inspirational figures and exceptional leaders throughout the club’s illustrious 128-year history. From the iconic likes of Tommy Smith, Emlyn Hughes, Phil Thompson, Graeme Souness and Alan Hansen to the more recent greats such as Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher, the Reds have been blessed with some big characters throughout their past. Our current skipper is no different, and the latest video released by the club typifies everything brilliant about Jordan Henderson.

Captain fantastic

Jordan Henderson has been with the Reds for over nine years now since he signed from Sunderland [BBC] back in 2011 while Kenny Dalglish was in the managerial hot-seat at Anfield.

The England international has gone on to clock up 372 appearances for the Reds and inherited the captain’s armband from predecessor Gerrard back in 2015.

Henderson, 30, was forced to remain patient for success with the League Cup the club’s only tangible evidence of success prior to the 2018/19 season.

However, in the space of just two short years, Henderson and his manager Jurgen Klopp have successfully inspired Liverpool to Premier League, Champions League, Super Cup and Club World Cup glory.

Champions League video

Liverpool fans were left swooning over the latest footage of the irreplaceable skipper in action during the 5-0 Champions League victory against Atalanta in midweek.

The 56-time international was dedicated a special homage to his leadership qualities from the club. It features just under a minute of Henderson continuously marshalling and giving orders to his teammates during what was Liverpool’s most complete performance of the season so far.

Diogo Jota rightly dominated the plaudits following his first career hat-trick for the Reds but this latest footage of Henderson epitomises why he has become one of the club’s all-time greats in recent years.

Reaction

Liverpool fans were drooling over the released footage of FWA Footballer of the Year and some took to Twitter to publically praise the club’s iconic and irreplaceable captain.
