Jordan Henderson is an inspirational captain at Liverpool and he has been discussing his role in Jurgen Klopp’s team.
Speaking on the ‘Jordan Henderson is Never Done’ documentary, the 32-year-old said: “When I’m on the pitch I’m different. I think I’ve always been quite an instinctive player, quite a high-energy, intense player, quite emotional. I’ve sort of had to improve over the last few years, definitely, since Jürgen came. I get a lot of help from the players around me, of course, a lot of help from the coaching staff.
“I do become a lot more intense [on the pitch], a lot more aggressive – only to try to help the team. I need to shout at people for them to be able to hear me really.
“My motivation has always been to prove people wrong and I don’t think that will ever go, I think that will always be the case. I’ve always had to prove people wrong all through my life and I don’t think I’d want it to change now. I’ve learned to deal with it, I’ve learned to use it in a positive way.”
It’s no secret that our No.14 is a vocal leader on the pitch and he manages to get the best out of his teammates because of it.
His fight to prove people wrong is what makes him such a good player too, as the Sunderland-born midfielder has been silencing doubters ever since he arrived at Anfield.
The whole documentary is a real treat and helps to personify what the skipper means to this football club.
