Flamengo manager Jorge Jesus hailed Henderson and called him the best midfielder in the world. As quoted by Goal.com, the former Benfica manager told Portuguese channel CMTV: “Henderson is the best midfielder in the world in his position. [Jurgen Klopp] never sacks him, but the two offensive midfielders, [Naby] Keita and [Georginio] Wijnaldum, sometimes are replaced. The other players are always the same.”

Henderson is a very good midfielders and is often underappreciated by many. However, calling him the best in his position might be a stretch as there are players better than him.
