Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson has had a stunning season this time around.
The 29-year-old is the Reds’ captain, and he has played an important role in the middle of the park for them. As it stands, they are 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League, and they were on the way to going the campaign unbeaten until they were beaten 3-0 by Watford at Vicarage Road – a game Henderson missed through injury.
He has even been tipped to win the Player of the Year award – all of this praise is some way off the perception of him just last season, when supporters of the Anfield outfit would lay in to him regularly.
The Empire of the Kop has even taken it a step further. Steven Gerrard recently compared Henderson to Manchester United legend Paul Scholes (BT Sport via The Liverpool Echo) – make of that what you will – and Twitter page Empire of the Kop has even included Henderson in the age old debate of who is better between Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and Paul Scholes.
Who is/was better?
Incredibly, they have actually rated £25.2m-valued Henderson – according to Transfermarkt – as third in that list, above Scholes – this has the Reds supporters reacting. They have taken to the social media platform to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments below.
Love Hendo. But this makes me lose faith in society completely.

It’s honestly just embarrassing to include him in this, not gonna lie… I mean,the guy got sent off attempting the hand of God, he’s lucky to even be compared to Henderson!

The Hendo type player is what the ‘golden generation’ needed. But the refused to budge from a 4-4-2
