Jordan Henderson vows to ‘show what he can do’ at Liverpool
Jordan Henderson is desperate to prove his worth at Liverpool after starting the Reds' last two games under Brendan Rodgers
Jordan Henderson is desperate to prove himself at Liverpool after a mixed start to his Anfield career.
The 22-year-old was handed his first Premier League start of the season by Brendan Rodgers for Sunday’s goalless draw at Swansea City after also making the line-up for the Reds’ Europa League clash against Young Boys.
Henderson, who joined the Merseysiders in a £16m deal in June 2011 but has struggled to force his way into the first-team, has vowed to build on his recent performances in a bid to impress manager Brendan Rodgers and earn himself a regular starting spot.
“It’s been different, it’s been a challenge – but one that I’ve looked forward to,” continued Henderson, who has scored two goals in a red shirt,” Henderson told Liverpool’s website ahead of Wednesday’s trip to Tottenham.
“I’ve always said, I always want to play for Liverpool Football Club and I give everything I can to do so every single day that I come in training and every game that I play.
“I’ll always give 110 per cent and I always believe in myself at the same time. I believe that I’m good enough to play for Liverpool.
“I want to improve as a player and be the best that I can be, and I’m sure the manager does as well. He’s been brilliant with me, to be honest, and helped me a lot.
“From the outside it’s easy to say that I haven’t been playing and maybe not in favour of the manager and stuff like that, but it’s a different feeling for me – the messages I’m getting from the manager, how I need to improve my game, looking at games that I have played and what I need to do better.
“I definitely feel as though I’ve come on over the last few months and now I need to really start kicking on and showing what I can do.”
