Liverpool captain Henderson feels he’s entering his prime after signing new long term contract

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has been speaking about how proud he is of the seven years he has spent at Anfield and that he feels there is more to come after he signed a new five-year contract with the Reds last week.

Henderson joined Liverpool in a £20 million deal from boyhood club Sunderland in 2011. Although he initially struggled at Anfield he eventually grew into an integral part of the Reds midfield and became club captain when Steven Gerrard left Liverpool in 2015.

The 28-year-old England international feels he is entering the prime of his career now and also revealed how much he enjoys working under Reds coach Jurgen Klopp.

“I’m very proud of how far I’ve come in the seven years I’ve been here. But I know there’s still a lot more to give. I feel as though I’m getting into my prime now,” Henderson told the Mirror.

“I feel as though I’m in a good period in my career with the balance of experience and still having the youth.

“Physically as well, I feel in good shape, and I also think I can improve and be better in areas.

“Under Jurgen Klopp there’s no better manager to do that really. He helps us a lot on and off the field and I want to continue to do that.”
