Jordan Henderson was today officially confirmed as Liverpool Football Club’s new captain as he takes over the reins from now departed Steven Gerrard!
Henderson on being the new Liverpool skipper: “I’m absolutely delighted and proud. It is a great honour and a huge privilege to be named as the captain of this football club.
“When Steven [Gerrard] wasn’t in the team last season, I tried to do the best I could when I stepped in and took the armband. Now I’ll be looking to carry that on and continue to grow as a captain.
“I’ll look to give my best all of the time, put the team firmly first and try to give them – or help them with – whatever they need from me.”
