He's not flash but his attitude & application are top notch, he's got a good all-round game and most managers & teammates rave about him.

And now he's now in an elite club of European Cup-winning captains.

He was pitiful at the world cup. He's a clogger, nothing more. A less mobile Ander Herrera.

Im sure he works as hard as anyone but him winning a European cup doesnt suddenly mean hes anything more than a journeyman.

he's no souness, alonso or molby but he does his job well enough for four consecutive lfc managers to play him so he must be doing something right

fair dues to the guy

Also he’s generally been a regular for a few England managers too. Mobility is his strong point. For a pressing team he’s really useful because he’s so aggressive in the press. Talent on the ball is limited but it’s not to say he has none. Was one of our key players going down the home straight of the season.

Hes been at three clubs. One of which was on loan when he was 18.
Phileas Fog he ain't.

🤔
Maybe he's a donkey rather than a journeyman. No doubt though, he's the worst European champion captain ever. 😎

That may be but you do feel that if LFC are to push on to next level and win league, that he would be the first player that would need to make way for that extra improvement.

Players mentioned above did everything that Henderson does and offered that bit extra quality as an attacking outlet. I'd say Klopp hoping that in time, Keita will fill the role.
Likewise with England - if they are to get to semi finals and beyond again, they will need that bit more than Henderson offers.

Good player to have in the squad to bring on if say 1-0 up with 20 to play.
