Liverpool star backs under-fire manager to bring in silverware

Liverpool star Jordan Henderson has admitted that he has the full backing of under-fire manager Brendan Rodgers, according to reports from the Mirror.

The 24-year-old was among the names linked with an Anfield exit, but having penned a new five-year deal, he has committed his future to the club.

He revealed that his current boss has played a major part in his development as a player, and believes that he can still win trophies under the same management.

“Since the manager came in, he has improved the club – I have said many times that he has been a massive part of me developing as a player,” he said.

“For me, Brendan is a world-class manager. I have got a lot of thanks to him for helping me do that and hopefully it will continue.

“Now I really feel the next stage is to win a trophy and go from there.”

Henderson has attracted interest from Manchester City, Chelsea, and even La Liga giants Barcelona in recent months prior to the signing of his new deal.

The England international is also in line to become the club’s new captain once current skipper Steven Gerrard departs to MLS side LA Galaxy in the upcoming window.

Despite ensuring the services of the midfielder, Rodgers is still struggling to negotiate a deal with Raheem Sterling, who is yet to confirm his stay at the club.
