Watch Liverpool legend support Jordan Henderson for Fifa honour
Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard gets behind Jordan Henderson's bid to be on front cover of Fifa 2016
Steven Gerrard has leant his support to Jordon Henderson’s bid to get on the front cover of Fifa 2016.
The Reds midfielder is already being touted as the next Liverpool captain after Gerrard called time on his Premier League career at the end of the 2014/15 season.
The 25-year-old has grown in stature over the past 24 months at Anfield following a difficult start to his Liverpool career after a £20m move from Sunderland in 2011.
England and Liverpool legend Gerrard clearly feels that Henderson deserves to receive the less honour of joining Lionel Messi on the front cover of EA’s video game Fifa 2016.
Liverpool’s Instagram page posted the above video message from Gerrard with the following caption on the photo-sharing app: “@stevengerrard is backing @jhenderson for the #FIFA16UKcover. Go to fifa16cover.co.uk to vote and make sure to share too #VoteHenderson”
The England man was one of the Merseyside outfit’s more consistent performers this season, racking up over 3,000 minutes of Premier League action.
Henderson, who signed a new long-term deal with the five-time European champions last month, has scored six goals and has made nine assists in 36 Premier League games last term.
