Former Celtic and Liverpool footballer, Kenny Dalglish has complimentedLiverpool captain Jordan Henderson on his leadership qualities. The English footballer has been the part of Liverpool from 2011 to till now. He was transferred from Sunderland for an undisclosed fee amount which is believed to be between £16 to £20 million. He had been leading the team from 2015.
Under him, the club has won the Champions League and is now leading on the Premier League table. He has transformed into an exceptional captain with leadership skills and good mental strength. He was the one who lead the campaign along with Premier League players for the NHS fund to raise money for people who are suffering during the period of COVID 19 pandemic.
Dalglish commented on how much Henderson has developedas he was the one who scouted the 21-year-old midfielder to Anfield. He is glad to have become a leader who will other players follow and imitate. He told the media how he struggled as a young player in the initial stage butat present, he has developed a lot which shows his mental strength and his potential. Even though people enjoy seeing him in the pitch he has more to him than one can see.
“He came through at the beginning and he’s been fantastic for the football club, not just on the pitch, but off the pitch. [As a] leader, a fantastic example.”
Dalglish is not the only one who has praised Henderson recently. Steve Bruce the former manager of Sunderland has commented that from the sight of Henderson on the training ground, he knew that be will grow up to be an exceptional player.
Another reason that makes Liverpool the best is the trio, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Robert Firmino. There have been speculations that they have been offered a move away from Anfield. But Dalglish dismisses the possibilities as everyone can see all of them are comfortable playing for Liverpool. He also feels that the club and players have a good relationship and Liverpool will not be selling them away anywhere in the near future.
