Speaking recently to reporters, when asked about Henderson’s impact as his side’s captain, Klopp said: “I can say, after six years of working together, he was a perfect choice. […] He’s a perfect role model for a footballer.

“He’s a real leader and on top of that but really important for a leader is that you don’t want to have it only by yourself – you have to share it and that’s what the boys do.”
