Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson wants Champions League and trophies

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson discusses his ambitions after signing a new five-year deal

Jordan Henderson says he wants to be playing in the Champions League and challenging for trophies after the Liverpool midfielder signed a new five-year deal on Thursday.

The 24-year-old committed his future to the Reds until 202o following an impressive season in red colours so far, scoring six goals and making eight assists in 31 Premier League games.

Henderson got his first taste of Champions League football in the group stage earlier this term, whilst the Reds narrowly missed out on the Premier League title in the 2013/14 campaign.

Speaking to Liverpool’s website after penning his new long-term contract, Henderson unmasked his ambitions for the future ahead of the club’s trip to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

“I’m the same as every other player, I want to be playing at the highest level – in the Champions League, winning trophies and being very successful. I’m no different.

“I had good conversations with the manager about the future of the football club and it was very bright, I was very pleased with what I was hearing.

“I want to be a big part of that and hopefully I can.”

Henderson has scored 20 goals in 180 appearances for the 18-time English champions since his £20m move from Sunderland in 2011.

The England midfielder was named as Liverpool’s new vice-captain at the start of the season following Daniel Agger’s return to Denmark.
