'Life goes on': Jordan Henderson's typically bullish reaction to major Liverpool transfer from this summer
Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson has been talking about Sadio Mane and insisted that, simply, life goes on for the Reds.
Mane moved to Bayern Munich this summer in one of the more surprising transfers of the window. Of course, Liverpool did manage to keep hold of Mo Salah, so there was a big positive for the club on that front. Nonetheless, Mane’s loss will be felt at Liverpool simply due to his goals and assists, as well as how accustomed the team has been to playing with him out wide.
However, while Henderson acknowledged Mane’s loss to Liverpool, he told TalkSPORT that things will move on as normal for the club and squad.
“Any club in the world would miss Sadio. For me he’s arguably one of the best players in the world and he’s a great character as well.
“Really good to have around, setting standards, so a big miss for us. But that’s football. Hopefully he does well at Bayern and we’ve brought a few new lads in to this group and hopefully we can adapt and change a bit now Sadio’s gone. But like I said, life goes on,” Henderson told TalkSPORT.
TBR’s View: Liverpool Can Adjust Without Mane
Henderson is bang on in his assessment here. It’s a fair one that nods to Mane’s brilliance but essentially says the club will always be there regardless of the players on board.
For the Reds, it’s about simply moving on and getting on with it. Mane will be a loss and they have been used to playing with him. But Darwin Nunez should do well, while Fabio Carvalho is an exciting prospect who Henderson has tipped for excellence as well.
Liverpool will be fine. Mane is a club legend, but such is football, as Henderson says, life goes on.
