Jordan Henderson admits a proposed move away from Liverpool was the turning point in his career.
Henderson was offered Fulham in 2012 as part of a deal to take Clint Dempsey to Anfield. But the move failed to materialize.
Speaking on the proposed exit, Henderson told talkSPORT
: "That was a crucial period in my career, not only my Liverpool career.
“I thought that moment was big, and it was a tough moment, but one that I feel helped me, looking back now. I don’t know what would have happened if I didn’t have that moment. It was tough at the time but thankfully it worked out okay in the end.
“To be fair to Brendan, he was brilliant with me after that point; he helped me grow as a player and as a person, and I really matured under him. It was a blessing in disguise really.”
