Jordan Henderson is Liverpool’s captain. Whether you like it or not, that’s the situation – and any Liverpool skipper with a heart as big as his deserves our unadulterated support.
So why has a Reds supporter taken the time to edit a video showing Henderson’s poor performance versus Burnley, and why have 5,000 odd fans retweeted it?
Coutinho and Roberto Firmino, our brilliant Brazilians, were worse than Henderson at the weekend for us – but certain players get categorised – and it’s hard for them to shake negative attention.
Henderson missed a whole chunk of last season injured, and he’s not reaching the levels he displayed in 2013/14 – this is undeniable. Still, it’d be foolish to judge him on this campaign after two matches – especially as he’s been used as a holding midfielder – not a natural position for him.
You’ll see below that Henderson didn’t cover himself in glory at Turf Moor, but we’re backing him to turn it around.
