Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson could well be set to have to live with pain in his heel for the rest of his career, with The Guardian reporting that the Reds skipper’s ailment is incurable.
The England international has become a crucial member of the Merseyside club over recent years, with his guidance and energy in the heart of the side’s midfield key to the team’s fortunes.
However, Henderson has recently spent three months on the sidelines due to an injured foot, but is fighting his way back to fitness.
The former Sunderland box-to-box man made a substitute appearance in the 6-1 thrashing of Southampton in the Capital One Cup in midweek, and is now in the running for a starting berth in the trip to Newcastle on Sunday.
Despite this, the latest report suggests that Henderson has been told that he will have to play through pain for the rest of his career, with no way to solve his current woes.
An operation or surgery are not possibilities and as such the England man’s heel could well see him miss a considerable amount of action if the same ailment flares up again.
