After Gerrard Go, Henderson Is Not So New Captain Liverpool
Liverpool – Steven Gerrard’s departure in the summer to make Liverpool will have a new captain. Jordan Henderson, who now holds the post of vice-captain is not necessarily going to be a replacement for Gerrard.
Gerrard, who captained Liverpool since 2003, will leave the club when his contract runs out at the end of the 2014/2015 season. He will then move to the US and joined the Major League Soccer (MLS), the Los Angeles Galaxy.
In the last few games, Henderson wore the captain’s armband for Gerrard to be absent due to a hamstring injury. 24-year-old midfielder carry out their duties well enough as a leader on the field.
Henderson is now the strongest candidate substitute Gerrard as the new captain of the Reds. But, according to Henderson, there are other players who also deserve to be captain.
“Next season, we’ll see what will happen because maybe not me who replaced her. Maybe other people,” Henderson said on the club’s official website.
“There are many strong leader in the locker room. There are a lot of players with strong character in the team. They are people who are down to earth and humble,” he added.
“Mama (Sakho), Emre (Can), and Skrts (Martin Skrtel) has developed a strong collective understanding. You can see their passion, they really want to win, they give everything,” said Henderson.
“Studge (Daniel Sturridge) is also a strong character. Lucas (Leiva) also. I can only run a task that now as well as possible,” he said.
