Liverpool fans make massive u-turn by calling for Henderson return

Jordan Henderson is not loved by the entire Liverpool fanbase as some believe that he does not provide the quality required in the middle of the park.

However, during Tuesday night’s Champions League clash against Red Star Belgrade, the midfield put in a dismal display, and it was certainly not down to Henderson.

The club captain was left out of the match in Serbia due to injury, and manager Jurgen Klopp selected a trio of Georginio Wijnaldum, Adam Lallana and James Milner.

The overall performance from the Reds was passive and disjointed, which meant that Red Star’s surprise 2-0 victory was much deserved.

Henderson has missed Liverpool’s last four fixtures, but he is closing in on a return to fitness following a hamstring injury.

It is unclear whether the midfielder will be passed fit for this weekend’s Premier League game against Fulham, but plenty of fans believe that he can solve the team’s current woes.

The praise for Henderson completely contrasts the regular criticism that he seems to receive from groups of Liverpool supporters.
