Jurgen Klopp strongly believes that Jordan Henderson, the captain of Liverpool has taken the most difficult job in the last five hundred years of football as he replaced Steven Gerrard. Henderson, the midfielder of England has given a fired-up cameo on Friday from the bench as he scored to complete victory over Southampton by 3-1. This has moved Liverpool ahead of Manchester City at the top of the table of Premier League.
The arrival of Fabinho to Anfield in this season is a sign that Henderson isn’t an automatic choice when it comes to taking up the midfield position. He had been deployed in a box to box role to a fine effect in the St. Mary’s Stadium. Jurgen Klopp maintains the value of the twenty-eight-year-old to the cause of Liverpool is significant and he feels that the task which he has taken over to wear an armband that was being proudly sported by Steven Gerrard shouldn’t be underestimated.
He says that he is an excellent boy. The goal meant so much to him, as well as to the team. Klopp feels that he deserves all the praise; however, he doesn’t get much of it. According to him, Hendo is a brilliant footballer. He is a captain and he is just fantastic. He says that if he was to write a book on Hendo, it would have been of 500 pages. Hence, he is quite positive about this young player. He replaced Gerrard and is doing the most difficult job in 500 years of football.
