Plenty of Liverpool fans have found themselves agreeing with Tim Sherwood after he showered captain Jordan Henderson with praise.
The Reds jumped another hurdle in their pursuit for their first Premier League title in 30 years and moved 25 points clear at the top of the standings after beating Norwich City 1-0 at Carrow Road. Indeed, Sadio Mane was the hero after he came off the bench and scored the winner with 13 minutes to play, meaning that Jurgen Klopp’s side need just five more wins to become champions.
Despite this, former Spurs manager Tim Sherwood recognised that the Sunderland-born midfielder has established himself as a true star this season. He told BT Sport (cited by the Liverpool Echo) that he is an “unbelievable leader” and will go down as one of the most influential captains in the history of the football club.

He already did a great thing and an unbelievable work is that he took pressure and replaced Gerrard 👌
