Giving Liverpool Supporters Something to Celebrate

The Liverpool captain was very uplifting in his media availability before the Merseyside derby.

Henderson discussed Jurgen Klopp, who was perplexed when Henderson was injured, and how he stressed that the players give their all for the supporters.

“The manager said last week that we always play for our people and never is this more true than when we face Everton. We are aware of our responsibilities, now we have to live up to them.”
