'One of the best out there': Neil Warnock thinks £20m Liverpool player is just incredible

Neil Warnock has waxed lyrical about Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, in conversation with SPORTbible.

The 73-year-old took part in the online outlet’s challenge of managing the England team on Football Manager.

Warnock not only selected the Reds midfielder in his team, but as with his Anfield role, made him skipper.

“Talkers are few and far between nowadays and he’s definitely one of the best out there,” said Warnock.

“If I’m honest, I never thought Henderson would do as well as he has done at Liverpool.

“He just kept surprising me. He’s like a bottle of wine. He’s got better year after year.”

When it came to picking his England captain, Warnock said of the Liverpool star: “He’s the captain of Liverpool.

“He’s got the most experience. He knows what he’s talking about.

“And I think on the pitch, he’d be moving everybody where he wants because there are going to be gaps.

“He’d be instrumental in the talking side of things.

“I don’t see many talkers playing in England’s top flight these days. It’s so important.”

Henderson has been nothing short of sensational since joining Liverpool back in 2011.

The £20million man took a while to find his feet at Anfield, but he eventually became an incredible player and captain.

Appointed Liverpool skipper in 2015, Henderson won the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup in 2019.

A year later, he led his team to the Premier League title, the club’s first league title in 30 years.

And this year, Henderson lifted the FA Cup and Carabao Cup.

He has also won a number of individual awards including the FWA Footballer of the Year accolade in 2020.
