Liverpool fans react as Jordan Henderson is named England Player of the Year

The Reds skipper beat Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane to the prize.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has been voted England Men’s Player of the Year for 2019.

The Reds shared the news on their official website and Twitter page as the England vice-captain scooped the prize after a public vote from fans.

It has been a fantastic year at club level for Henderson as he scooped the Champions League, Super Cup and Club World Cup.

Individual recognition has been hard to come by during his career, but now the critics are starting to see his qualities.

Plenty of Liverpool fans on Twitter were absolutely buzzing for their captain and no doubt their votes played a part in his victory.

Harry Kane is the England captain but Henderson is the main talker on the pitch and will be vital to Gareth Southgate’s hopes of leading his side to glory this summer at Euro 2020.

Plenty of Reds on Twitter praised Henderson, with some relishing the prospect that the former Sunderland man getting recognition may wind up rival fans or those who don’t value his contributions like they do.

Henderson has never been the type to chase individual accolades – team honours are far more likely to satisfy him – but this award represents some long overdue recognition for his qualities and leadership.
