Video Emerges Of Jordan Henderson’s Elite Mentality In Liverpool’s Win Over Atlanta
Diogo Jota was the obvious star in Liverpool's 5-0 victory over Atalanta on Tuesday night, scoring a hat trick as the Reds took the Serie A side apart.
However, another key man on the night, who may have been overlooked, was skipper Jordan Henderson.
Revealed by the club's Twitter account today, the England international was extremely vocal during the thrashing - practically coaching his team through the game.
Always encouraging his team, the former Sunderland man was particularly excited by Sadio Mane's excellent assist for Diogo Jota's hat trick goal. He can also be heard giving advice to youngster Curtis Jones, with the 19-year-old still growing into his role in the squad.
Henderson's importance to Liverpool has been very apparent during the campaign, with injury problems forcing Jurgen Klopp and co. to discover what life would be like without the 30-year-old.
