Klopp Hails Henderson After New Deal

Manager Jurgen Klopp believes Jordan Henderson is the embodiment of a Liverpool player after his captain signed a new deal at the club. The Reds boss has praised his “General” and is convinced the 28-year-old can still get even better over the course of what is a five-year contract with the Premier League frontrunners.

“It is fantastic news but should not be a surprise to anyone – he is perfect for us and we for him, I think,” Klopp told liverpoolfc.com.

“Jordan embodies entirely what it means to be a Liverpool player in this modern era of football.

“You can tell through his actions on and off the pitch he treats representing our badge and our shirt as a privilege.

“He takes nothing for granted and strives to learn and be better for his team at all times.

“He carries a lot on his shoulders that people on the outside won’t see, but he embraces that responsibility and that leadership. He is our ‘General’ and I trust him completely.”

Henderson joined Liverpool from Sunderland back in 2011 and the England midfielder has gone on to make 283 appearances, scoring 24 goals.
