Jordan Henderson is certain not to play again this season, with his injury showing no signs of getting any better.
In fact, the skipper, who hasn’t played since our 2-0 win over Tottenham in February, has now been told by doctors to walk on crutches so as to take the weight off his injured leg.
The fact this is happening over two months after his last match, when he’s already been walking unaided for weeks, suggests a long-term problem.
Injuries plagues Henderson last season, but during the first two thirds of this one, he was healthy and impressive, nailing down the deep-lying playmaker position and becoming the favourite to replace Wayne Rooney as full-time England captain.
Now, Henderson’s just worrying about when he’ll be able to get back on the pitch, but that’s looking like pre-season at the earliest…
Naturally, worried Reds took to Twitter to air their grievances. Where do you stand on the skipper’s situation?
I love Jordan Henderson i’ve never ever slagged him off i rate him very highly , if he can’t play tho he needs to be sold i hate saying that

@thisisanfield It wouldn’t surprise me if klopp buys a a replacement, he’s failed to make 30 app in all comps in 2 consecutive seasons. That’s not right.

Jordan Henderson played through the pain on his heel injury and now it may never properly heal again. Is playing for LFC that deep nowadays?
