Liverpool captain Henderson: Exhilarating, emotional and hugely successful season

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson says they're determined to build on last season's Champions League glory.

Henderson admits Liverpool are now focusing on the Premier League.

Henderson said: "Winning the Champions League against Spurs was a fitting way to end what's been an exhilarating, emotional and hugely successful season for Liverpool Football Club.

"It is an enormous honour and a privilege to be captain of this great club. Lifting the trophy in Madrid alongside my team-mates to bring the European Cup back to Anfield for the sixth time was one of the greatest moments of both my life and my career.

"The memories from not just that night, but the entire journey to get there, will stay with us all forever."

He continued: "We are all hungry for more. We should look back at our Premier League campaign with great pride too.

"To have achieved 97 points and to only lose one league game in the entire season was a phenomenal achievement by the team.

"Of course, we were bitterly disappointed to narrowly miss out on the title by just a single point, but we will use the huge number of positives from the campaign to fuel us for the new season ahead."
