Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish insists that club captain Jordan Henderson rose above early difficulties to become fantastic.

Jordan Henderson arrived at Liverpool back in 2011 from Sunderland.

There were few if any that thought he would amount to club captain material, never mind a linchpin of a Champions League and Premier League winning side.

According to club legend, Kenny Dalglish the England midfielder struggled at Anfield in the beginning.

However, his determination to succeed allowed him to develop into a fantastic player.

Speaking to Hat-Trick Podcast Dalglish is in awe of what Henderson does both on and off the field.

He said:

“It was difficult for him at the start because he’s a young boy coming in.”

“But, by the way, it shows you the power of strength mentally he is, and actually how talented he is.”

“He came through at the beginning and he’s been fantastic for the football club, not just on the pitch, but off the pitch.”

“As a leader, a fantastic example. In the dressing room, he’ll be strong.”

“There’s more that goes on with Jordan than what you actually see, but what you see on the football pitch is really exciting.”

Henderson has been credited by many as the key player behind Liverpool’s dominance in the Premier League this season.
