Liverpool fans can often be a difficult bunch to please, but news (admittedly news that we all kinda knew already) confirming Jordan Henderson as the heir to Steven Gerrard’s throne as club captain seems to have garnered some good vibes from the Anfield faithful.
Having already capably stood in for the departing club legend during his lengthy absences last term, it was quite clear to see that he was being groomed for the position, so the announcement was expected, but still met with some love once it was made official.
Some have accused the fans of giving the England international a lukewarm welcome to the job, and though the announcement can hardly be counted as a surprise, we believe that the fans are pleased to have someone that cares about the shirt and his responsibilities as much as the last man did.
See how Liverpool fans reacted to the news below…
Chuffed to bits for Jordan Henderson! Mad to think he nearly went to Fulham a few years back in a swap deal with Clint Dempsey!

Could Henderson be announced as being on the FIFA cover and as Liverpool captain in the same day?
