Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has been named as the FWA Footballer of the Year, just days after lifting the Premier League trophy.

Over the last 13 months, the skipper has picked up medals for the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and Premier League.
Topping it off with one of the highest individual honours you can get in England isn’t a bad way to finish this season.
As a reminder, the FWA – or the Football Writers’ Association – picks their player of the year based on votes taken from people working in the media.
Henderson has now become the fourteenth Liverpool player to have been given the award, after recent winners Mohamed Salah, Luis Suarez and Steven Gerrard.
