(Video) Jordan Henderson explains why he’s handing over his social media platforms

Posted by

This is as classy as ever from the captain.

Jordan Henderson’s social media accounts will be run by @CybersmileHQ for the time being, as the Liverpool skipper looks to spread awareness about online bullying, trolling and the absurd abuse many people (and footballers) receive on social media. 

Whenever a player is involved in a poor performance, he is relentlessly targeted on either Twitter or Instagram – with so-called fans actively seeking out the person (not player, person) to abuse them.

It’s become so normalised that racist and homophobic messages are rife – with Sadio Mane and Trent Alexander-Arnold targeted after our defeat to Real Madrid.

Thierry Henry recently left social media in protest, but Hendo is taking a different route.

We applaud both. Check out his video explanation below:
