After a stellar season, Reds captain Jordan Henderson is named Liverpool’s Men’s Player of the Season.

If anyone can embody the character, mentality, and personality of Klopp’s Liverpool, Jordan Henderson is that person.

Alongside his great performances on the pitch, his influence off-the-pitch truly showed how amazing the Skipper is.

Jordan leads this Liverpool team by example, and he’s always been a captain setting high standards for all his players.

He managed to win the accolade having beat both Sadio Mane and Trent Alexander-Arnold. The latter who finished second and third place after supporters deemed Henderson the best Liverpool player this season. 

Before his season ended due to an injury, Henderson made 40 appearances in all competitions and was involved in nine goals.

While his stats aren’t out of this world, Jordan’s tenacity and leadership inspired the team to work harder than ever after missing out on the title last season. You can bet he’ll push the team to do even better on next season’s fight to retain the title.

Back in 2012, Jordan was almost transferred to Fulham on a swap deal for Clint Dempsey, but he said no.

He decided to stay at Merseyside and fight for the spot he deserved.

Fast-forward to 2020, and not only has he been named Standard Chartered’s Player of the Year, but he became the first Liverpool captain to lift the Premier League trophy in 30 years.

Jordan managed to prove both the fans and Brendan Rodgers that he deserved to wear the Liverpool badge long ago. And to this day, he keeps proving himself better and better every single day.
