Virgil van Dijk outlines what makes Jordan Henderson the perfect Liverpool captain

Virgil van Dijk has hailed Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson for his performances during this season. Henderson has been a key part to the Reds squad having made 24 appearances so far during this season, in which he has scored 1 goal and provided 2 assists. Speaking about Henderson, Van Dijk said: "He’s our captain. That’s what we all respect. He’s having a fantastic season so far. "He’s been doing fantastically whether he’s filling in for Fabinho at the moment or he’s playing as a right midfielder where he’s giving assists and stuff. “He has been fantastic, in and out of the pitch he is very important for us whether he plays or not. We are all respect him on that level. "I think from him that is also the most important thing. When other people say negative things it doesn’t really matter. “He was outstanding when he played centre half. I was really proud of him. I told him after the game. He has got a lot more respect for what we do in the back as well. "It’s not easy and I know sometimes we make it look a bit easy but it’s difficult. “They played very direct as well in that game, long balls, tall striker. It was not easy for him but he dealt with it so well.” source - Mirror
