Henderson joined the Reds from Sunderland in 2011 and has gone on to become club captain.

The 30-year-old has helped his side to Premier League and Champions League glory in recent years, with the latter being a main subject in 'Henderson: The Making of a Champion' on LFCTV.

His father, Brian, has been interviewed for the documentary and says there is 'nothing better' than watching his son play football.


"There's nothing better if you have a little boy, to watch him play football," an emotional Brian stated.

"These are the best times of your life. He was a lovely kid, he was never any trouble, the only thing he ever wanted to do was play football to be honest."

"The first year or two he was just a bit down about himself because he wasn't doing as good as he thought he would do," Brian said.

But that all changed with the appointment of Jurgen Klopp in 2015, which saw Henderson kick on like never before.

There was heartache along the way, on and off the pitch. On the pitch saw Liverpool lose the 2018 Champions League final to Real Madrid.

Meanwhile, Brian had been battling throat cancer since 2013 and told Jordan not to visit him in hospital.

"The final in Kiev, I swear to God we were going to win that," Brian continued.

"Jordan went straight past the cup, which was to his left. And then after the game I said, 'Don't worry son, you'll win it next year.'"

What happened the following year? Henderson lifted the Champions League as Liverpool captain after a 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur.

"I knew we were gonna win that," Brian revealed.

"When the final whistle went, the place went ballistic. And that's when we had that iconic moment it turns out.

"And I just said, 'You've done it, I knew you would.'"
