Jordan Henderson was 'ready to kill' teammate over explosive training ground incident

Jordan Henderson was 'ready to kill' teammate over explosive training ground incident

Hendo saw red?

Ajax midfielder Jordan Henderson has lifted the lid on a training ground spat he became involved in during his time at Liverpool.

The Three Lions international left England for Saudi Arabia in the summer, only to call time on his spell in the Middle East after just six months.

Now back in Europe, Henderson has failed to win a game for John van 't Schip's side so far and is once again struggling to rekindle his form.

Occurring just months after he arrived on Merseyside, Henderson is said to have become embroiled in a bust-up with former Liverpool team-mate Luis Suarez.

Speaking on Jamie Carragher's 'The Greatest Game' podcast in 2019, the former Sunderland man said he was 'ready to kill' the Uruguayan.

"I was trying to do the best I can do," he began.

"Being a footballer, there is criticism and people doubting you all the time.

"At that time, I was a young player, and there were one or two things Luis did in training that I didn't like. It made me feel I wasn't good enough to be in the same team in training.

"The arms were up like, 'What the f***, what is he doing?' Like I shouldn't be there. That really hurt me.

"He did it three times and then I exploded and I was ready to kill him."

Patching up things soon after, Suarez and Henderson went on to play together 104 times in total.

Hoping to rekindle his form ahead of England's upcoming European Championship appearance in Germany this summer, the 33-year-old says making Gareth Southgate's squad remains his upmost priority.

“I’m in contact with Gareth regularly as I have been many years and that hasn’t changed, like he is with all the players, you know how close he is to the lads," said the former Reds midfielder last month.

"He understands the situation.”
