Jurgen Klopp says that Jordan Henderson will lift the Premier League trophy despite being ruled out for the rest of the season due to an injury.

Henderson will miss the Reds last games of the season due to a knee injury that he suffered on Wednesday against Brighton.

“Get him out of the tracksuit? I don’t know yet, we will do everything that is possible to do it the right way,” Klopp said. “He is absolutely one of the great captains of this club.

“I have no idea what will be the rule. If you are not in the starting lineup – which will be difficult for Hendo – then I don’t know what we will do.”

When told that the rules have been changed to allow injured players to lift the trophy, Klopp continued: “Then Hendo will be there and he will wear the match kit and everything will be fine.

“We know since yesterday the injury is not as serious as we really thought, all of us and it is big relief, big relief because we really thought he deserves exactly – for the role he played the last years now – he deserves to be in that spot at that moment [when we lift the trophy].

“So we will find a solution that shows the respect absolutely for what he did. All the boys want that by the way, they all want him to be there and that was one of the first things I heard after we won the league!”
