The Liverpool footballer is proud of what the Reds captain has accomplished at the club, and he believes he will only get better.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has been criticized a lot.

But the Reds player has also proven his “haters” wrong.

At least this is what his teammate Adam Lallana believes.

“Listen, I don’t know why there are questions there. It seems like always,” Lallana was quoted by The Liverpool Echo.

“He’ll keep proving people wrong the rest of his career. It’s what he does for a living.”

“As footballers, we always do that because other people will always write stuff about us,” he added.

“But, listen, he’s just lifted the sixth Champions League for the club and he’s one of our best players this season.”

“I drive in with him most days,” he explained.

“I see how selfless he is towards the group, how he puts other people first, never himself.”

“No one sees that apart from our players inside,” he said.

“Everyone has the utmost respect for him so I couldn’t be happier for him, really.”
