Liverpool have enjoyed great success under Jürgen Klopp. The boss has overhauled the club from top to bottom, getting the very best out of his players. He’s transformed the side’s captain. Speaking to the club’s official site, Sir Kenny Dalglish has heaped praise on Jordan Henderson amid tributes for the player’s 10th anniversary at the club.
10 years of Jordan Henderson
The then 20-year-old joined from boyhood club Sunderland having earned a reputation as a wicked crosser of the ball during his debut season in the Premier League.
Flash forward 10 years and the Mackem has racked up 392 appearances in all competitions for the Reds.
He has led the club to a first league title in 30 years, the European Cup, the Super Cup and the Club World Cup.
Jordan Henderson has established himself as a modern day legend of the club, one of Liverpool’s greatest ever captains.
His achievements are even more impressive given how he persevered through a difficult couple of seasons following his arrival at the club.
Sir Kenny Dalglish on Jordan Henderson
There have been mountains of tributes pouring in for the skipper this week.
Club legend Sir Kenny Dalglish has praised Jordan Henderson for his contributions, telling Liverpoolfc.com:
“What he’s done through that time as a footballer he can be totally proud of. I mean, the world club championship, Liverpool had never won it before. The Champions League, he won it. Not won the league for 30 years, he’s the captain that leads them forward to that.
“And he did lead them, he does lead them on the pitch and he takes his captaincy very seriously and he’s very good at it.
“So, I just hope he continues on for another few years. He’s not finished yet, there will be a few more trophies for him to come. But Jordan, thanks for signing for Liverpool.”
