Gareth Southgate has talked up Jordan Henderson’s leadership qualities following his strong form for Liverpool FC in recent seasons.

The Liverpool FC captain has been earning plenty of praise for his solid displays in the middle of the park for Jurgen Klopp’s men as he has established himself as a regular in the team at Anfield.

Henderson has scored one goal and made one assist in 20 Premier League games for Liverpool FC so far this season and he will likely make the trip to Russia with England for this summer’s World Cup.

Southgate is yet to announce his captain for the England team for this summer’s World Cup in Russia, and the Three Lions boss has spoken glowingly about Henderson’s fine form in a Liverpool FC shirt of late.

The England boss told a news conference after Henderson captained England against the Netherlands on Friday: “He’s got some tremendous human qualities and is a leader of men.

“He worked the game out very well today, spotted the tactical changes the Dutch made in switching their system three times, speaking to others and telling them where to press.

“Obviously he’s one of the few guys who captains his club. Or has captained his club. He’s comfortable in that role. He’s comfortable to speak up for the group. He has a mindset for the collective, not the self. That’s a hugely important attribute for a captain to have.”

Henderson will be expecting to feature for Liverpool FC when the Reds return to Premier League action after the international break with a crunch clash against Crystal Palace away from home.

The Reds, who were 5-0 winners over Watford at Anfield last weekend, are currently in third place in the Premier League table as they look to secure Champions League qualification for the second season running.
