Former Liverpool hero Jan Molby says captain Jordan Henderson will be remembered as a “great” at the club after lifting the Champions League.
A 2-0 victory over Tottenham, led by Henderson, gave Liverpool their first European triumph for 14 years and their sixth overall keeping their name among the pantheon of great clubs.
Mo Salah’s early spot-kick set them on their way before Divock Origi secured the win with his late strike in the box.
Henderson was quiet but effective during the game against Spurs, as they limited their opponents to very few clear cut chances. And, Molby says the often maligned Henderson deserves more credit than he gets.
The Reds legend told Liverpool’s official website: “It’s often overlooked how important these people are.
“But at Liverpool Football Club we’re very proud of our history and if you go through all of the great teams, we can all name the great players – but [also] the ones who were there every week, produced every week that, through history, become great players.
“Once Jordan is gone, people will look at the void that he leaves and think, ‘Oh wow’. “He’s never been scared of sort of confronting the criticism he’s had – by that I mean, you go out and play your game. “The biggest compliment you can have as a player is if the manager keeps on picking you.”
Liverpool are 8.00 to retain the Champions League next season while they are 3.60 to win their first ever Premier League title.
