Jordan Henderson: 'I will raise a glass to Liverpool supporters'

Sun 27 December 2020 | 15:03

Liverpool won the Premier League last season and now they are back on top of England's first-class football tournament again

The Merseyside's skipper Jordan Henderson has honored the club's supporters following a difficult year that saw the Reds win the

Premier League

title. 

Since March, with the Coronavirus widespread, fans have been missing a significant part of the year to accompany their beloved clubs. 

A small bunch of fans have had the option to appreciate ongoing Premier League activity at Anfield against Wolves and Tottenham, yet generally, Liverpool's enthusiasts have been not able to watch their side play face to face. 

Henderson, notwithstanding, has hailed the fans for their "immense" commitment to the

Liverpool

cause. 

“With this being our last home game of the year, I want to finish off by looking back on a remarkable 12 months and offer my own very simple Christmas message to our supporters,” he wrote in the programme ahead of facing West Brom.

“To each and every one of you, I want to say thank you. We have been fortunate enough to be successful and even though you were not always able to be in the ground, your contribution has been immense. 

“We didn't just win the league title for our fans, we won it because of them and I hope those of you who celebrate Christmas, and also those of you who don't, are able to find an opportunity to toast the role that you played in our success.

“I know I'll be doing that, with a soft drink rather than anything stronger, and when I do I will raise a glass to Liverpool supporters for inspiring us every step of the way. 

If the reds defeat the Baggies on Sunday, they will be ensured to complete 2020 on top of the Premier League standings, in spite of an excursion to Newcastle still to come on Wednesday.
