Jordan Henderson Is One Of Only Seven Captains To Lift 'International Treble'

Jordan Henderson Is One Of Only Seven Captains To Lift 'International Treble'

The image of Jordan Henderson lifting trophies is becoming pretty frequent and he's become just one of seven men to captain his side to Europe's 'international trophy treble.'

Liverpool fans are unlikely to tire of Henderson lifting trophies, and how iconic it's becoming, and can start to expect seeing him lift the Premier League trophy in May.

However the three trophies he's lifted this year already put him in exalted company and joins a lost of just six others to have lifted the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA World Club Cup in the same year.

Sergio Ramos - Real Madrid, 2016, 2017

Jordan Henderson - Liverpool, 2019

Liverpool became the first club to win all three in a year with Manchester United missing out on the UEFA Super Cup in 2008 and Chelsea missed out on both the Super Cup and World Club Cup in 2012, thanks in part to Radamel Falcao's performance in the former.

It's incredible that three Real Madrid captains have managed to achieve the the treble and Sergio Ramos even managed to do it twice himself, as has Barcelona's Andres Iniesta.

Ramos would have been the only man to win a treble but in 2018 Atletico Madrid got rare revenge in a European final against their local rivals in the Super Cup, winning 4-2 after extra time.

Of course Henderson will be hoping that his trophy lifting won't be ending any time soon and right now it looks like it will continue.

Reds' fans won't be getting ahead of themselves, especially having seen some near misses in recent years, but Jurgen Klopp's team currently find themselves 10 points clear of second place Leicester City in the Premier League and with a game in hand.

Having gone the first 17 games undefeated, only dropping points in the draw to Manchester United, it seems highly unlikely they'll throw away the lead from here.

Will Henderson become the first Liverpool captain in 30 years to lift the league title?
