Liverpool vice-captain Jordan Henderson has revealed that he’s not been promised the Liverpool captaincy, and feels that it could still go to another member of the Reds squad, reports CaughtOffside.
He said: “Next season we’ll see what happens because it might not be me succeeding Stevie, it might be someone else. There are a lot of strong leaders in the dressing room.
“There are a lot of big characters in the team – down-to-earth, humble people. Mama (Sakho), Emre (Can) and Skerts (Martin Skrtel) have developed a strong collective understanding.
“You can see their passion, they’re desperate to win, they give everything. Studge (Daniel Sturridge) is a big character. Lucas (Leiva) is too. I can only do the current job the best I can.
“Stevie’s the perfect captain really. He’s a leader on and off the field. He’s someone we all look up to. He always puts the team first. He’s very unselfish. When I became vice-captain, I tried to learn as much from him as I could.
“The thing I’ve probably learnt most from Stevie is the way he overcomes the disappointments. I think that defines you more than anything. I can relate to it. If I look back to my first season here, it wasn’t easy. But it made me stronger.”
