Why Henderson may struggle to be a regular starter for Liverpool this season

Liverpool: Why Emre Can Is the future, Not Henderson

Liverpool: Why Emre Can Is the future, Not Henderson

One of the biggest mistakes that Klopp made was to allow Jordan Henderson to keep the armband when he took over. Maybe he didn't want to change too much, too soon. But in his second season, Hendo still has it.
