Liverpool captain “Jordan Henderson” wins Footballer of the Year award

The Captain of Liverpool, Jordan Henderson has received the Men’s Footballer of the Year award

More than a quarter of the votes were given to the 30-year-old midfielder, who guided Liverpool to their first league title this season in 30 years.

“As grateful as I am I don’t feel like I can accept this on my own,” he said.

“I owe a lot to so many people but none more so than my current team-mates, who have been incredible and deserve this every bit as much as I do.”

Also in the top five were Liverpool team-mates Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane, Kevin de Bruyne from Manchester City and Marcus Rashford from Manchester United.

Henderson, who is recovering from a knee injury, collected the Premier League trophy at a near-empty Anfield from Reds hero Sir Kenny Dalglish on Wednesday on.

Henderson added: “I accept [the award] on behalf of this whole squad, because without them I’m not in a position to be receiving this honour.

These lads have made me a better player – a better leader and a better person.

“If anything I hope those who voted for me did so partly to recognise the entire team’s contribution.”

Also in December, Henderson lifted the Fifa Club World Cup trophy for the first time.

Off the pitch, Henderson as part of the #PlayersTogether campaign has helped raise funds for the NHS.

Arsenal and Netherlands striker Vivianne Miedema has been named Women’s Footballer of the Year Football Writers’ Association. The month before.
