After an impressive season in the premier league campaign, Liverpool’s hard work and consistency paid off with their first ever premier league trophy in 30 years.
Liverpool’s captain, Jordan Henderson who have been underrated by many over the years has been the stand out player for the Reds this season and his high pressing on the pitch has gone recognized even by Football writers across the country.
The 30 year old captain captained Liverpool to the Champion League title in 2019, while the club also claimed the Club World Cup in December. Henderson also made history by becoming the first ever Liverpool captain to lift the premier league trophy. In January 2020, Jordan Henderson was also named the England national team’s player of the Year 2020.
And to wrap off an impressive season, the England international was recently crowned Football Writers’ Association (FWA) Footballer of the Year for the 2019/2020 season after seeing off stiffed competition from Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne and Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford to claim the award.
Reflecting on the win, Henderson said;
“I owe a lot to so many different people – but none more so than my current team-mates – who have just been incredible and deserve this every bit as much as I do.
“We’ve only achieved what we’ve achieved because every single member of our squad has been brilliant. And not just in matches. Not just in producing the moments that make the headlines and the back pages but every day in training.
“But as grateful as I am I don’t feel like I can accept this on my own.”
“I don’t feel like anything I’ve achieved this season or in fact during my whole career has been done on my own.
