Henderson was forced to sit and watch from the sidelines as the Reds were 3-2 winners against Norwich City before suffering a 2-0 defeat by Chelsea and drawing 3-3 with Crystal Palace.
“To be honest, nothing changed for me,” Henderson told the Liverpool Echo. “I trained as normal, travelled as normal, and was involved with the lads as normal as well. All that had changed was that I couldn’t play in the games.
“It was difficult, but my job was to encourage the lads and try and get them up for the game as much as I could. I just tried to help as much as I could, especially with the young players.
“I wanted to still be involved. Things would have been going through my head even more if I’d have been sat at home, and not there with the lads.”
He added: “It’s hard, because you want to play. You’re frustrated because you’re not out there. But you’re just like a fan really, you want the lads to do well.
“I kick every ball when I’m watching. And you do see a different side to the game. I learnt a few new things in those three games.”
