“He plays every week” – Stewart Downing showers praise on the attitude shown by Liverpool star
Former Liverpool winger Stewart Downing has lauded current Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson for his attitude and tenacity towards the game.
Both Downing and Henderson joined the Anfield outfit in 2011 from Aston Villa and Sunderland respectively.
Downing later left Anfield two years later to join West Ham Uniter while Henderson became club captain in 2015 after Steven Gerrard’s departure and has lifted five major trophies since.
Speaking on the club’s official website LiverpoolFC.com, he said;
“You’ve got to give him credit for his attitude, sticking at it, improving every year and it’s no surprise he’s gone on because of his attitude.
“He has played for a few managers, played with a lot of different players but he always seems to play every week.
“That’s why managers rely on him – because of his attitude and his ability.”
“The biggest compliment you can give him is he plays every week; he has got world-class players around him and some of them are getting left out, that’s probably the biggest thing I can give to him.”
