Jordan Henderson said he will always be unable to equal the responsibility of Steven Gerrard to Liverpool regardless of leading the club to a Premier League era first title.
During the final home game against Chelsea, Henderson will turn into the principal Liverpool captain to win the Premier League, Champions League, and Club World Cup when given the top-division trophy.
The 30-year-old played a part in the ascent of Liverpool under Jürgen Klopp, here and there the pitch, with his quality vindicating Brendan Rodgers’ choice in July 2015 to make him Gerrard’s replacement as the captain.
The midfielder of England remains dissatisfied with comparisons with his antecedent and demands his special situation in the history of Liverpool doesn’t mean that Gerrard’s replacement challenge has been met.
“I said this when I previously took over the captain ‘s work, when individuals may have questioned me and addressed me as an individual, however, I’ll always guarantee that nobody in this club will replace Steven Gerrard, regardless of who the captain is or what the team wins,” said Henderson.
“At the point when I took over the captaincy to replace him, it wasn’t in my psyche; it was to do as well as could be expected for this club and this squad, and that’s all that I’ve at any point attempted to do.”
When Henderson marked his first entire day with a series of golf as a Premier League champion, he addressed Gerrard on Friday and, dedicated the nineteenth league championship of the club to the legend of Anfield, who endured an agonizing near-miss in 2004.
