Henderson extends Liverpool stay


Jordan Henderson has signed a new deal with Liverpool.

The England international has put pen to paper on a new and improved deal which will ensure that his stay at Anfield is extended beyond the 10 years that he has already spent with the Premier League club.

Henderson joined the Reds in 2011 and he has went on to make 394 appearances and scored 30 goals.

Speaking to the club’s official website, the 31-year-old said he is hungry and determined to achieve more at Anfield.

“I’m obviously very honoured and proud to continue the journey I’ve already been on here. It’s amazing to finally get it done and just concentrate on looking forward and what the future may hold.

“I’m in a different place of course, as a player and as a person, from when I first walked in. I’ve learned and grown a lot over my time here, and I’ve got to thank a lot of people for that.

“I’ve loved every minute of it, even when I look back at the tough times, I was still enjoying being a part of this football club. The longer I can do that, the better for me really. I want to be here as long as possible, I’ve always said that.

“To continue this journey is incredible for me and my family, and I hope the fans and the club feel the same way.”

He has won the Uefa Champions League, League Cup, Premier League and Club World Cup with the club and his journey will now continue into the future.

“Every year is the same, every year is the biggest challenge, the biggest season ahead. I feel as hungry as ever.

“I feel as hungry as I did when I first walked in 10 years ago, to prove to people that I deserve to be at this football club and give absolutely everything every single day for the badge, for the fans and for each other in this building.

“If we do that, I feel as though we’ve got a good chance of being successful.”

Liverpool have tied down most of their senior players with Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson also committing their future to the club in recent weeks.

They have started the 2021/22 season well after managing victories against Burnley and Norwich before a hard-fought draw against Chelsea last weekend.
