Liverpool captain Henderson picks out what has helped youngster

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson believes learning from the club’s senior players has really helped youngster Tyler Morton after breaking into the first team.

Morton has made seven appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side in recent months, impressing in the Champions League against AC Milan in the San Siro.

The 19-year-old has started the last two fixtures, away at Tottenham in the Premier League before playing 45 minutes in the comeback win over Leicester in the Carabao Cup.

The midfielder has benefitted from the absence of senior midfielders Fabinho and Thiago who returned positive Covid tests, whilst Henderson also missed the Spurs clash with illness.

Liverpool skipper Henderson believes that Morton has learned from his more experienced peers to continue his development.

Speaking to, Henderson said: “Tyler has been brilliant over the last few months, I really think he has improved.

“He has obviously learned and listened to a lot of the lads around him in training and being around the lads, in the dressing room and in training, it will certainly help him. And I think that has helped him going into games, I think he has looked comfortable and he hasn’t looked fazed at all and he has done really well.

“So hopefully he can just carry on doing that. He is a great lad as well, he has worked extremely hard and I’m sure he’ll have a big future ahead of him.”

Meanwhile, Liverpool winger Sadio Mane has praised Henderson and his vice-captain James Milner for the hard work they put in during games. 

“I see one player who never gets stiff, which is Millie,” Mane told Sky Sports.

“James Milner is somebody who is always training like games. I always joke with Hendo in training as he is stiff. When we do rondos, you have to pass the correct ball to Henderson or he won’t move.

“But what a lad Hendo is. On the pitch, you can see how good he is. The energy he gives to other players is incredible and he is always working hard. In training, maybe he’s not the same! In games, he’s one of the most hard-working players I’ve seen, along with Millie.”
