Because three winners’ medals and the FWA Player of the Year Award weren’t enough for Jordan Henderson, the Liverpool skipper can now add ‘Liverpool Player of the Year’ to his burgeoning list of accolades.
Henderson was a central part of a magnificent season at Anfield which culminated when he became the first Liverpool captain in 30 years to lift the league trophy.
He has steadily grown from bit-part player into an indispensable midfield presence under Jurgen Klopp, and his individual performance was recognised when he lifted the FWA award ahead of Manchester City’s creative force Kevin de Bruyne.
The club have now announced that the 30-year-old fought off Sadio Mané and Trent Alexander-Arnold to be named Liverpool’s Standard Chartered Men’s Player of the Season for 2019-20.
The award was voted for by fans and Forever Reds, the club’s former players association, and it comes as no surprise as Henderson continues to sweep up the awards.
