What Henderson is believed to have said to Gabriel
Earlier this week came the news that Henderson would not face any further action from the FA following the incident that took place between him and Gabriel towards the end of Liverpool’s 3-2 defeat to Arsenal.
The exact nature of the complaint has never been disclosed but it has created damaging allegations in time between the match and the FA’s statement.
However, reports today have shed some more light on the situation, with the Daily Mail‘s Martin Samuel explaining why the FA dropped the case.
According to Samuel, Henderson is said to have told the FA that he called Gabriel a “f*cking idiot,” with Gabriel believing the Reds’ captain used “another far worse word in Portuguese.”
Henderson, of course, does not speak Portuguese, and it would appear that the Arsenal defender misheard what had been said.
Liverpool will be relieved to see the investigation come to a conclusion, as well as the one looking into Klopp’s behaviour towards the referee and his officials in the victory over Man City.
Neither Henderson or Klopp will face a ban of any kind.
