Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson was brought to tears as he listened to Jurgen Klopp’s tribute to him, after being named FWA Footballer of the Year.
The boss recorded a message to be played to the midfielder on camera – and although resistant, the skipper went along with it.
The boss tells Henderson to enjoy the moment, and says “who’d have thought the young fella coming from Sunderland to Liverpool would one day be the best player of the Premier League?”
Who’s chopping onions in here?!
It’s an unreal watch. Take a look (via beIN Sports):
