Liverpool captain Henderson: I felt this when Klopp took over…

Jordan Henderson has revealed that one of his number one priorities during his career has been to prove himself.

The Liverpool midfielder has constantly had to answer the critics throughout his playing days which mainly stems from his questionable £20million transfer from Sunderland back in 2011.

But the query of Henderson having to prove himself popped up again last year when Jurgen Klopp took over at Anfield.

"I feel as though I've always had to prove myself. I've felt that since I was at a young age," said Henderson.

"That is not just managers, but people in general. I want to prove everyone wrong.

"Obviously when the new manager comes in and he is one of, if not the best, in the world, you want to impress him.

"It doesn't really matter who it is, I want to prove people wrong and help the team to win games."
