Jordan Henderson is confident that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will return an even better player for Liverpool FC once the England star recovers from a knee injury.

Liverpool FC signed Oxlade-Chamberlain in a £40m deal from bitter rivals Arsenal in the 2017 summer transfer window.

The England international opted to move to Liverpool FC ahead of a switch to Chelsea FC or putting pen to paper on a new deal at Arsenal.

Oxlade-Chamberlain made a slow start to his Anfield career before he became an important first-team player under Jurgen Klopp.

The 24-year-old scored in Liverpool FC’s 4-3 win against Manchester City at Anfield as the Reds ended the Citizens’ unbeaten start to the season.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was also on the score sheet in Liverpool FC’s 3-0 victory over the Citizens in the Champions League quarter-finals.

His season was cut short after the versatile midfielder suffered an injury problem in Liverpool FC’s 5-2 win over AS Roma in the first leg of their semi-final.

Former Liverpool FC midfielder Henderson is backing Oxlade-Chamberlain to return a stronger player from his injury setback.

“That was disappointing for us as a team because Ox has been brilliant all season,” Henderson told Liverpool FC’s website.

“He’s came in and I think he’s put in some brilliant performances and you can see how the fans have took to him straight away. [He’s] brilliant to have around in the dressing room, he’s a big character and he’ll be missed over the time that he’s out, definitely.

“But I know that he’ll be back as soon as he can and as strong as he can, because that’s the type of person he is. He’s always positive, even now when he’s injured he comes in with a smile on his face and he’s always joking around and laughing.

“It’s amazing to see, really, because of where he is at the minute and he’s got a pretty long journey ahead of him to recover, but I’m sure he’ll attack that.

“He’s got brilliant people around him and helping him, and the lads will help him as much as they can throughout that journey. I’ve got no doubt he’ll be back as soon as he can and he’ll be even better when he’s back.”

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last season to ensure their continued participation in the Champions League.
