Skipper delighted with “new Gerrard” Henderson

Steven Gerrard hopes new £16million midfielder Jordan Henderson will go on to become the club’s new him.

Henderson completed his big money switch from Sunderland yesterday, and Gerrard is delighted at the 20-year-old’s arrival at Anfield.

“It’s a really positive signing,” Gerrard said. “Let’s hope he is the next Steven Gerrard.

“Liverpool needs a new Steven Gerrard and it will need a new Jamie Carragher. That’s what good football clubs do – they replace their best players.

“I saw Jordan at first hand for two or three days with England and he is a good player with energy.”
