“Thoroughly deserved,” “Should rustle the anti-Hendo brigade!” – Fans react to Jordan Henderson’s new Liverpool contract

Jordan Henderson signed a new long-term deal with Liverpool on Monday and fans took to social media to give their thoughts.

With the skipper signing on with the Reds until 2023, he’s sure to continue playing a big part under Jurgen Klopp.

The No. 14 has been a regular under the boss, taking the Reds to three cup finals since replacing Steven Gerrard as Liverpool captain.

He does, though, remain a divisive figure for some, and the mixed reactions indicate as much.


Plenty of fans were delighted that the skipper had signed his new deal…


Others questioned whether it had any impact on how vital he’d be this term and beyond…


Many pointed out how much Henderson is relied on and trusted by Jurgen Klopp…

“Great news, sometimes you don’t need superstars in your team, you need hard worker.”

Gavin de Pierre on Facebook.


The length of the deal, which would see Henderson well into his 30s, was questioned…


But the overall outlook was positive—despite the acknowledgement of the captain remaining a divisive figure for some fans!

“Great news. Far too many fickle, armchair, Henderson hating supporters in our fan base. What happened to getting behind your team and the players? Hendo plays for the shirt every game and deserves every bit of this contract. Well done Jordan! YNWA.”

Matthew Moreland on Facebook.
