Jordan Henderson Personally Intervened After Liverpool Fan Stole His Shirt From A Child
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson stepped in after giving his shirt to a young child - only to see it get taken by another fan. Check out the exchange below.
The Reds ran out 3-1 winners against Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon to close the gap on Premier League leaders Manchester City.
Club captain Henderson approached the away end at Selhurst Park and gave his shirt to a youngster in the crowd.
Someone snatched it away however and Henderson noticed immediately.
The 31-year-old can be seen approaching the crowd and gesturing towards who took the shirt, insisting he give it back.
Stewards are also alerted to the situation and make an attempt to sort it all out.

Liverpool took the lead inside eight minutes through Virgil van Dijk's header.
The defender rose high to power home an Andrew Robertson cross.
Robertson turned provider once again just past the half hour mark to set up Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who volleyed past a helpless Vicente Guaita.
Palace had a number of chances before half-time however, with Alisson making saves from Michael Olise and Jean-Philippe Mateta.
The Eagles grew into the contest and got their reward after the restart, as Odsonne Edouard finished a fine team move.
Patrick Vieira's side kept up the pressure before Liverpool won a controversial penalty in the 89th minute.
Diogo Jota went down following a challenge from Guaita and referee Kevin Friend was asked to consult VAR monitor.
He reversed his initial decision and Fabinho buried the spot kick to secure all three points.
Vieira was furious with the decision at full-time and didn't understand how a penalty was given.

He vented to The Guardian: "That was a really poor decision from the referee.
"I looked at it from every angle and I still don’t understand how that can be a penalty. In meetings with the referees they explained to coaches that contact is part of the game, and if there is not obvious contact there is not going to be a penalty.
"Here, there was no way Jota – who I believe was really smart, and the referee quite naive – could get the ball back and try to score. That decision took our hope away of getting back into the game and getting a point."
Liverpool have closed the gap at the top to nine points after City's 1-1 draw with Southampton on Saturday.
