Jordan Henderson is set to be be named LFC captain and has received the backing of Steven Gerrard.
Gerrard also says he’s disappointed with Raheem Sterling.
Jordan Henderson is set to be named as the next captain of Liverpool, and has received the endorsement of the man he’ll be taking over from.
Former skipper Steven Gerrard, speaking to the BBC Sport reporter Katie Gornall, said:
“Jordan’s been loyal to the club by signing a new deal and I wish him well.“
Gerrard then spoke about Henderson’s game and how he could see similarities to how he used to play:
“I see a lot of my game in Jordan’s game and what I like about him is he’s very humble.“
Gerrard, talking ahead of his LA Galaxy debut this weekend went on to say that he expects Henderson to have a “wonderful career” for both Liverpool and England.
The former skipper was also asked about Raheem Sterling’s current situation, after the player reportedly refused to go on the club’s tour of Asia and Australia later this month, and has since missed the last two training sessions at Melwood citing illness as the reason.
He said that he was “very disappointed” with the happenings at his former club, and that he would “love to be able to say what [he] wants to say on it.“
Gerrard was then asked to compare Sterling and Henderson, and responded by saying:
“Raheem and Jordan are at different ends of the scale. Jordan’s so professional, he’s a winner, a great lad.“
