Ex-Liverpool winger Downing: Henderson success due to attitude

Former Liverpool midfielder Stewart Downing has praised captain Jordan Henderson for his persistence.

Downing joined Liverpool from Aston Villa back in 2011, the same summer in which Jordan Henderson also completed his move to Merseyside.

The latter, of course, is now club captain and has lifted five major trophies since taking the armband, the most recent the Carabao Cup at Wembley last month.

“You've got to give him credit for his attitude, sticking at it, improving every year and it's no surprise he's gone on because of his attitude," Downing told liverpoolfc.com.

“He has played for a few managers, played with a lot of different players but he always seems to play every week. That's why managers rely on him – because of his attitude and his ability.

“The biggest compliment you can give him is he plays every week; he has got world-class players around him and some of them are getting left out, that's probably the biggest thing I can give to him."
