Rodgers: Henderson has potential to get even better

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers expects Jordan Henderson to continue improving and has hailed Kenny Dalglish for signing him.

The 23-year-old midfielder has taken time to settle since his big-money move – reported to be around £20million – from Sunderland in 2011 when Dalglish was in his second spell in charge at Anfield.

Under Rodgers, though, Henderson’s fortunes have transformed dramatically and his stand-out performance and goal in Liverpool’s 5-0 thrashing of Tottenham on Sunday is the latest in a series of impressive displays this season.

Henderson is battling for a place in England’s FIFA 2014 World Cup squad and Rodgers thinks he has every chance of being on the place to Brazil.

Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo: “It was a great buy by Kenny.

“Jordan didn’t set the fee, for which he’s taken a lot of criticism, but he’s 23, he’s six foot one, he can run all day and technically he’s very strong.

“Tactically, his understanding of when to press and when to stay is getting better all the time.

“When I came into the club, he was a player I’d heard had a brilliant attitude. That’s what I found.

“He’s a terrific player. He just needs confidence and constant work.

“He’s been outstanding for me. He’s a mentally tough boy, he’s very strong, and he’s great to work with.

“He will get better and better.”
