Paul Scholes heaps praises on Liverpool star for ‘setting the standards’ on and off pitch
Former Man United midfielder Paul Scholes has showered praise on Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson for his leadership qualities both on and off the Football pitch.
Paul scholes praised the Englishman for his ability to handle ‘disappointed players’ in the dressing room. Henderson made his 400th career league appearance in the Reds’ thumping 4-0 Premier League win over United at Anfield on Tuesday.
Scholes said about Henderson after the match:
“People like Jordan Henderson, they are just brilliant to have around the place. As Michael (Owen) made the point, they do the manager’s job for them.
“They are the ones around the dressing room. Setting the tone. Setting the standards on the training pitch or around the training ground.”
“Whenever people are disappointed at not being in the team. To make sure they aren’t too disruptive because you can get characters like that, who can get into a mood. We had loads of them.”
The reds captain Jordan Henderson joined Liverpool in 2011 from Sunderland. He was given captaincy shortly after Steven Gerrard’s departure.
Since then, he has successfully lifted six titles with the club, who are also aiming for a quadruple this season after securing the league cup against Chelsea.
