James Milner And Jordan Henderson Proved They Are World-Class Professionals Waiting For Chelsea Players

Liverpool pair James Milner and Jordan Henderson showed they are consummate professionals by waiting for Chelsea players after they collected their runners up medals.


After a thrilling Carabao Cup final that somehow finished 0-0 following 120 minutes of action and a tense, high-quality penalty shoot-out, Liverpool won the 2022 final 11-10 on spot-kicks.

Kepa Arrizabalaga, having been subbed on for Edouard Mendy late on in extra time, ballooned his effort from 12 yards over the bar and into the Liverpool supporters to give Jurgen Klopp's side their ninth League Cup trophy.

But before they collected the latest piece of silverware, captain and vice-captain Henderson and Milner showed their class.

Footage showed the duo waiting at the bottom of the steps to shake hands and embrace with Chelsea players, acting incredibly gracious in victory and generating praise from fans for their sportsmanship.



The two have demonstrated an admirable level of leadership during their time at Liverpool and their gesture will have been appreciated by Chelsea players.

Shortly after Henderson was then able to perform his trademark trophy shuffle, lifting a fifth trophy as captain of Liverpool.

He got his hands on the League Cup as a player in 2012 when the team beat Cardiff on penalties and was back holding that same prize aloft a decade later after another shoot-out victory.


"[It's] very special to win trophies for this football club no matter the competition," Henderson told Sky Sports.

"It was a big opportunity for us today, thankfully we're on the right side of it. It's always difficult when it goes to penalties but I thought the lads, overall, deserved to win today."
