Liverpool boss Rodgers keen to get the best from Henderson

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has praised England midfielder Jordan Henderson and revealed his belief that there is more to come at Anfield for the former Sunderland player, the Liverpool Echo has reported.

Rodgers noted that he has been an admirer of Henderson since he broke into the Sunderland team but acknowledged he made a slow start to his Liverpool career, pointing to the player’s young age, large transfer fee and new surroundings as reasons to why. However, Rodgers added he believes that in the right environment Henderson has a great deal to offer, even if he is still learning his trade.

This kid can play football. If he is in a certain system – in an environment which is going to help him and educate him in the game – you will see that,” Rodgers vowed, adding “The biggest thing for me that I’ve heard about Jordan is his attitude. He has got an incredible attitude.

Last season Henderson made 48 appearances for Liverpool, scoring twice, and was included in Roy Hodgson’s England squad for Euro 2012 after a string of injury-enforced withdrawals. Henderson was originally on the standby list but when first Gareth Barry and then Frank Lampard pulled out Hodgson turned to Henderson, with the 22-year-old appearing as a substitute against France and Italy.
