Liverpool Jordan Henderson: I’ve improved under Brendan Rodgers
Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson believes he has improved under the stewardship of Reds boss Brendan Rodgers
Jordan Henderson believes Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has improved the midfielder’s game over the past two seasons.
The 23-year-old appeared to be heading towards the exit door at Anfield after failing to impress the Reds manager in the initial months of the Northern Irishman’s reign.
Henderson, who was signed by Kenny Dalglish from Sunderland in 2011, managed to improve in the second half of the campaign, becoming a first-team regular.
The England international finished the season with five goals in 30 Premier League appearances, and the midfielder has continued his good form into the 2013/14 campaign.
“I feel as though I’ve progressed over the last year or two,” Henderson told Liverpool’s website.
“I’ll try and push on. The manager has been brilliant with me and everybody else here. He’s been fantastic on a personal level.
“I think I’ve improved my game since he’s come to the club and he’s helped me to do that.
“We worked very hard pre-season and then in the games we have looked pretty solid as a team.
“The manager has definitely been working on that during the pre-season. Last three home games, we’ve done really well.”
Henderson has scored seven goals in 70 top-flight appearances for Liverpool following his big-money switch to the Reds from Sunderland in June 2011.
