Liverpool midfielder Henderson confident Rodgers rates him

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson says he feels he has the confidence of manager Brendan Rodgers.

That he had to wait until late November for a first league start suggests he had been left to languish in the wilderness.

Henderson is quick to challenge such a perception.

"From day one he has been good with me," he told the Daily Express. "Fulham was an option, but I felt I had more to give here, that I could help the team, that I was improving and I could give something back.

"He gave me that opportunity and helped me to do that.

"I have been working with the manager on the tactical side of the game, which I think has improved.

"I am thinking about the game a lot more. I am more disciplined in terms of when to press and when to make the forward runs.

"I have improved this season. If I look back on my performances I'm more mature, disciplined, more tactically aware. I just have to keep going in that direction."
