Speaking to SportBible, Neil Warnock was discussing Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson.

The former Middlesbrough boss was tasked with picking his England side for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and Henderson got the nod in the middle of Warnock Stadium.

In fact, Henderson was the player Warnock dubbed his captain, and he retained some special praise for the England international.

Warnock said Henderson is one of the best leaders in the game, noting that he had never imagined the former Sunderland man would perform as well as he did at Liverpool.

What was said?

Warnock talked about Henderson.

“Speakers are few and far between nowadays and he’s definitely one of the best out there. If I’m being honest, I never thought Henderson would do as well as he did at Liverpool. He just kept surprising me. He’s like a bottle of wine. He’s getting better year by year,” Warnock said.

Exceed all expectations

Warnock says he wasn’t expecting Henderson to do so well with Liverpool and, to be honest, not many people did.

Let’s not forget that the midfielder was almost shipped to Fulham just a year after joining the Reds in 2012, but he turned down the move to fight for his place – and the killer did.

In fact, the midfielder has lowered his head and improved every aspect of his game, truly becoming one of this club’s greatest captains of all time.

Of course, he had a huge boot to fill when he inherited the captaincy from Steven Gerrard, but he did everything he could to make a legacy that arguably matches that of Gerrard.

Despite a shaky start to his time on Merseyside, Henderson would go on to be one of Liverpool’s true greatest.

The England international is a great example of where hard work and dedication can get you into this game.
