Jordan Henderson: Winning Liverpool history a positive motivator

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson says the club's winning history can be a bonus going into the Champions League final.

Like everyone at Anfield, Henderson is aware of his club's glorious past. Emlyn Hughes (twice), Phil Thompson, Graeme Souness and ­Steven Gerrard have all lifted the ­European Cup for Liverpool.

Henderson said: “History is ­important – and we can take a lot from what has happened to this club before.

“It gives you motivation to try to be a part of that history, but to do that you have got to win ­trophies. This final is another ­opportunity that we need to take.

“But as I keep saying, we want to have more opportunities to be ­successful.

“Man City have won three ­trophies this year and that's where we want to be."
