Liverpool captain Henderson: Players as excited as fans about new trio

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson says the arrival of three new additions has lifted the dressing room.

A double swoop last week for Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota took Jurgen Klopp's recruitment this window to three after the earlier purchase of Kostas Tsimikas.

Henderson told the club's website: “It's often maybe overlooked that before any of us fell in love with playing, we all were fans. That never leaves you. I was a supporter before I was a player and I'll still be a supporter when I finish.

“So, when Liverpool announce a new signing, we in the dressing room aren't that much different. We get excited – we get caught up in the anticipation – we look forward to seeing them and hearing them for the first time. It does bring fresh energy and a lift.

“And as you know, since the start of this season we have welcomed three new faces to the club.

“Kostas joined first and we got to know him during pre-season. Thiago and Diogo are of course more recent arrivals.

“All three are going to be massively important to us and we are buzzing as a team to welcome them in. We need them and we are delighted they chose to come to us."
