Jordan Henderson has revealed his delight at being named the vice-captain of Liverpool this season.
“It’s a great honour to be the vice captain of such a big club,” said Henderson on Sky Sports News
“It’s a great honour to be given the extra responsibility by the gaffer.”
Steven Gerrard currently occupies the armband for Liverpool and has been denoted as one of the all-time greatest captains in world football. The consummate professional and captain. Henderson has been tipped to be the man who succeeds Gerrard for the armband one day and the 24-year-old has said Gerrard is the best to learn from.
“It’s a good feeling to come from one of the best leaders at Liverpool and England’s had but in the game itself,” he added.
“He’s the perfect role model for any young player or any player in this team to look up to. I try to learn from him as best I can every single day.”
Henderson has vastly improved his game in the last few seasons alongside Gerrard in the middle of the park, Henderson is blossoming into a leader both on and off the field.
