Jordan Henderson may have ended his stay at Liverpool but it’s obvious his love for his former club and teammates is still there, with his latest interview providing another insight into this.
Speaking with SSC Sports, the Sunderland-born midfielder was asked who the best player in the world is and he replied: “The best player in the world, from my own perspective, would have to be Mohamed Salah – 100%.
“Maybe I’m a little bit biased because he’s my friend but I’ve seen the dedication, the sacrifice he has every single day on training ground, his consistency of performances, scoring his goals – that’s why for me right now – he’s the best player in the world”.
Few on Merseyside (of a red persuasion) will disagree with the comments made by our former captain and although we never had the best campaign as a club last time out, the Egyptian King was at his best again.
Should we be able to end the new season with significant silverware, then Salah could find himself in the mix for trophies like the Ballon d’Or – something his career performances certainly deserve.
