Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has signed a new long-term contract with the club.

The 28-year-old moved to Anfield in the summer of 2011 and has made 283 appearances since, assuming the captaincy from Steven Gerrard in 2015.

“It doesn’t seem like too long ago when I signed my first one – it feels like yesterday, really – but a lot has happened since then,” Henderson told liverpoolfc.com.

“I feel it’s been a progressive journey for me throughout my time here and one I’ve enjoyed so much.

“There is no other place in the world I would rather play football. I want to be here for as long as I can be.

“I’m so privileged to have been a part of this club for so long, and hopefully even longer now.”

Jurgen Klopp, his manager, believes club and player are perfect for each other and believes Henderson embodies what it means to be a Liverpool player.

“You can tell through his actions on and off the pitch he treats representing our badge and our shirt as a privilege. He takes nothing for granted and strives to learn and be better for his team at all times,” he said.

“He carries a lot on his shoulders that people on the outside won’t see, but he embraces that responsibility and that leadership. He is our ‘General’ and I trust him completely.

“But the best thing is, I think – in fact, I know – he will get even better in these coming years. And this improvement will come from a very high base already.

“Jordan is so important to us and we are very fortunate as a club to have this person commit to us as he has.

“For Jordan and his wonderful young family I am really pleased they now know they are part of our Liverpool family for an even longer time.”
