Jordan Henderson 'Can Play For Anyone' After Accomplishing An Almost 'Impossible Job' At Liverpool

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has been backed to play for any club in world football after his "absolutely brilliant" time at Anfield.

That is according to Jamie O'Hara, who insisted that he "can't see Liverpool without Jordan Henderson."

Henderson arrived at Liverpool in 2011 after the Reds splashed out a reported £20m to sign him from Sunderland.

The England international initially struggled at Anfield, with Henderson admitting that the first year or two was a "difficult period."

However, Henderson has since established himself as a crucial figure at Liverpool and was named club captain after the departure of Steven Gerrard in 2015.

Henderson's long-term future at Anfield now remains uncertain after contract talks with Liverpool reportedly failed to progress.

The Liverpool midfielder, whose contract expires in 2023, has been linked with both Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

O'Hara praised Henderson for taking on "almost an impossible job" of replacing Liverpool legend Gerrard as captain.

However, the 34-year-old does not believe that Henderson will leave Liverpool this summer, saying it is "his agent's job and the club's job to sort this out."

Speaking on talkSPORT, O'Hara said: "Jordan Henderson can play for anyone, in my opinion.

"He's been absolutely brilliant over the last few seasons. He took over from Steven Gerrard to become the captain, and that's almost an impossible job, but Henderson has done that and he's been superb for Liverpool.

"I'd be really surprised if they don't get this sorted out, he is the captain, players look up to him, everyone talks about how much they love him and how big he is for the team.

"When he doesn't play for Liverpool... you could argue he's not their best player, which he isn't, but he's one of their most important players, without a doubt. When he plays, the team is better.

"When he got injured and he didn't play, they struggled. He is the driving force of that midfield.

"I can't see how Liverpool will just not get this sorted. There might be a situation where they've got to come to an agreement, whether it's money, the length of contract, but I think they'll get it sorted out.
