Jordan Henderson issues Liverpool injury update ahead of Newcastle clash

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson takes to Twitter to clarify his long-running foot injury

Jordan Henderson has played down the severity of his apparent incurable foot injury.

According to a report in Daily Telegraph, the Liverpool midfielder is set to play the rest of his career in pain after having been diagnosed with a condition known as Planter Fasciitis.

The problem reportedly worsened in April before the Liverpool captain broke a metatarsal in his right foot at the start of the season, which prompted a further deterioration with his heel.

However, Henderson, who made his comeback in a 1-0 win against Swansea City at Anfield last weekend, took to Twitter to clarify the severity of the foot problem.

Henderson came off the bench to replace Roberto Firmino in the final 30 minutes of Liverpool’s 1-0 win against Swansea City at Anfield.

The England international has made one assist in three Premier League games, having racked up 168 top-flight minutes.
