During his last sit down interview with LFCTV, the topic turned to club captain and close friend Henderson and Lallana was overcome with emotion.

The 32-year-old begun while fighting back tears: "I haven't been with Jordan throughout the whole journey. I've been alongside him when he's had his down moments."


The interview had to be paused briefly to allow the former England international to compose himself.

He then continued: "He's had a couple of injuries and he's been alongside me and my dark moments, injuries. It's not just defeats these dark moments.

"That'll be a constant battle for Premier League footballers throughout footballing careers because you're just looking for answers - try harder, do this, do that. There is nothing that will guarantee fitness, you've just got to keep working and doing your job."

Henderson was named FWA Footballer Of The Year on Friday after leading Liverpool to their first ever Premier League title.

The 30-year-old is often praised for his attitude and conduct off the pitch and Lallana gave an example of the pressure Henderson puts on himself as Liverpool captain.

"There was one morning - because we used to drive in a lot, me and Jordan - and we drew 3-3 to Sevilla. It felt like a defeat and I remember Jordan, he had his hood up and just hearing him say 'as captain that can't happen, I've got to be responsible for that.'

"Just to hear how honest he was but thinking 'are you crazy to be taking that responsibility? It's the team's responsibility, we've not even lost the game.'

"That just epitomises his selflessness and how much responsibility he takes for Liverpool Football Club in the bad moments, that's not the good moments.

"That's why he deserves this more than anyone else. He deserves to be the captain of Liverpool holding the four trophies in one season more than anyone else and no one can take that away from him ever.

"Being not just his friend but his teammate, nothing makes me happier."

Inspiring stuff.

Lallana is reportedly set to join Brighton & Hove Albion when his contract expires and his return to Anfield next season promises to be an emotional affair.
