Arsenal great Henry: I use Liverpool captain Henderson as example for kids

Arsenal great Thierry Henry admits he uses Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson as an example for young players.

The Liverpool captain scored the first goal in the 4-1 victory for Jurgen Klopp's side at Everton last night.

After the game, Arsenal legend Henry revealed that he is a 'massive fan' of the England midfielder.

He said, "He reminds me of Gareth Barry, James Milner. I remember when he started I didn't think he was going to be the player that he is.

"He's not the guy you mention first when you talk about Liverpool. But I do and I do with some young kids.

"You can't all be Mo Salah, you can't all be Messi but if you work hard, work ethic and your mind is in it and you are professional you can become Henderson and become the guy who lifts the trophy.

"Obviously for a long time Liverpool was waiting for that Premier League trophy - he was the guy.

"Liverpool winning the Champions League - he was lifting it and I know not a lot of people will mention him but this is the guy you can try to copy.

"It's difficult to copy Mo Salah, it's difficult to copy those guys and people talk about those guys but I'm a massive fan of him."
