Jordan Henderson Quote

One of the most amusing parts of SportMob's article on top

facts about Jordan Henderson

is a look back at his most interesting and controversial quotes about himself and other players.

On his problems with his coaches at amateur level:

“At the time I was a young player and there was one or two things Luis did in training that I didn’t like and it made me feel like I wasn’t good enough to be in the same team.

“The arms would go up – it was like, ‘what’s he doing’ as if I shouldn’t be there. It really hurt and frustrated me. He did it one, two, three times and then I exploded and I was ready to kill him!

On working with Jurgen Klopp:

"At Liverpool, Jurgen pretty much does everything, and we just follow him. Of course, we've still got leaders within the group to implement his message, but more often than not, we listen and then just do what he says."

On his first game with Liverpool against his boyhood club, Sunderland:

"Obviously, it was an amazing feeling to play for Liverpool for the first time. It was a little bit funny to be playing against Sunderland, but it is still an amazing feeling every time I put on the Liverpool shirt."

On his eating diet:

"A day or two before games, it's all carb overload: pasta, rice, potatoes, stuff like that. And, straight after the game, it's important to get as much carbohydrate on as possible. Refuel your body and get as much back in as you can. As it tails off a day or two later you, ease off on the carbs and go to more protein, vegetables, and salads."

The song he would sing if he does Karaoke:

"I'm definitely not a karaoke man, but I like to try stuff, so I'd get up on stage and give it a go. It would have to be something cheesy - karaoke always is - so maybe R. Kelly, The World's Greatest."
