Henderson opened up about Klopp’s impact at Liverpool FC since his appointment in 2015.
“[He’s] a massive influence. From when he came in to where the club is as at now, I think [the difference] is huge,” Henderson told Uefa.
“He’s had a huge impact and influence on not only the group of players but the whole club, the fans, everything has just gone to another level.
“He’s very passionate as you can see on the sidelines, and that’s how he is every day in training.
“He’s always pushing us to improve as players and always keeping us on our toes and wanting us to do better, but as players we’re very honoured to be playing under a manager like him, because you learn a lot from him.
“Hopefully we can learn more and more over the years to be a very successful team together.”
Liverpool FC have’t won the Premier League title but finished in second place in 2002, 2009 and 2014.
