Hendo relishing taste for goals

henderson1Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson says he hopes to be Liverpool’s goalscoring hero more often next season, after notching up six goals this campaign.

Henderson’s second season at the club has seen him come of age and be an integral part of Liverpool’s first team.

The summer signing of Joe Allen last summer appeared to spur Henderson on to improve as a player and athlete, and the former Sunderland man recently enjoyed a brace of goals against Newcastle Utd.

He told the club’s official website, “It’s always important for midfielders to get goals. Hopefully I can keep working on that and get a few more next season.

“Scoring goals has been brilliant for me on a personal level, but I think the team has definitely progressed throughout the season and we can only get stronger and better and we look forward to next season.”

With Steven Gerrard out of the final two games of the season through injury, Henderson will further step into the spotlight as Brendan Rodgers begins his ideas for nest season.

Henderson added, “We’ve progressed over the season – we’ve played some really good football and won some really good games.

“We’re definitely progressing all the time and we’ll look to continue to do so in the last two games and next season.”

Henderson recently revealed that he could have joined Fulham last summer, shortly after Rodgers’ arrival at Anfield. The Reds travel to Craven Cottage for this Sunday’s penultimate game of the season.
