Jordan Henderson has captained Liverpool to seven trophies as the leader of Jürgen Klopp’s champion team.
A relentless and inspirational presence, the midfielder has lifted the Premier League, Champions League, FIFA World Cup, Emirates FA Cup, UEFA Super Cup, Carabao Cup and FA Community Shield with his trademark ‘Hendo shuffle’ to cement his legacy as a legendary Reds skipper.
Those pieces of silverware are complemented by the League Cup Henderson won in 2011-12, his first season with the club.
Having joined Emlyn Hughes, Phil Thompson, Graeme Souness and Steven Gerrard on the illustrious list of Liverpool’s European Cup-winning captains in June 2019, Henderson went from strength to strength in 2019-20.
A hugely influential figure as Klopp’s side ended a 30-year wait for domestic supremacy and became the first Liverpool team to be crowned world champions, Henderson’s individual endeavours both on and off the pitch were recognised as he was named the Football Writers’ Association’s Footballer of the Year.
Henderson joined Liverpool from Sunderland in the summer of 2011 and his standing at Anfield was underlined when he became the club’s vice-captain in September 2014, before he then took the armband on a permanent basis in July 2015 following Gerrard’s departure.
He celebrated a decade at Anfield in June 2021 and would extend his association with the club further by signing a new long-term contract a couple of months later.
The 2021-22 season saw Henderson make 57 appearances for Liverpool - the most games any player played for a club within Europe’s major five leagues during the campaign - as the Reds lifted the FA Cup and Carabao Cup.
He finished a marathon campaign by captaining Klopp’s team in the Champions League final for the third time and passed the 450-appearance mark for the club in the early stages of 2022-23. Only Jamie Carragher and Gerrard have made more Premier League appearances for Liverpool than England regular Henderson.
