Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson says that although he has had to settle for a place on the subs bench this season, he shouldn’t be considered down and out.

The former Sunderland man has struggled to find a way into the first team since Brendan Rodgers replaced Kenny Dalglish at the helm at Anfield.

Henderson was questioned about whether his days on Merseyside were numbered, but the 22-year-old has ambitions to attain and hold down a first team place.

“From the outside it probably looks like that because of how much I played last year and this season I haven’t started a Premier League game,” Henderson told the Press Association.

“But I am coming into training every day, working hard and learning all the things I need to learn and I will continue to learn the game as the manager keeps telling me.

“I am very focused on what I need to do and it doesn’t make a difference what anyone else thinks. I want my future to be at Liverpool. I’ll give everything every day to make sure that happens.

“Now I’m 22 and I’m not playing as regularly as I would like to but, then again, I have got to take on board what the people are saying around me to try to improve myself as a player.

“I definitely think in the future, given the opportunity I will take it and become a first-team regular for Liverpool.”

Henderson is in Liverpool’s squad to face Anzhi in Russia in the Europa League at 5pm on Thursday evening.
