Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson aiming to keep performing at highest level for next six or seven years

Henderson’s time at Liverpool

Jordan Henderson joined Liverpool back in 2011 from Sunderland.

The midfielder has since gone on to cement himself as a key cog in Liverpool’s midfield.

Under Jurgen Klopp, the Reds have most certainly experienced a resurgence and Jordan Henderson has been a crucial part of that.

All told, the now Liverpool captain has notched 366 appearances across all competitions for the Merseysiders, in which he has scored 29 and assisted 50.

Henderson has also, of course, guided Liverpool to their 6th Champions League and first-ever Premier League title.

Henderson aiming to remain at Liverpool for as long as possible

However, with Henderson now 30 and his contract up in less than three years, the Liverpool faithful may be expecting to see their captain moved on in the coming years.

But if Henderson has his way, Liverpool fans will not be seeing the back of him for some time.

In a recent interview the Liverpool skipper spoke about how good he feels physically before stating he wants to try and play for both England and Liverpool for as long as possible.

“I’m just turned 30 and I still feel about 25 physically and I feel as good as I’ve ever felt. 

“I’m at a good point in my career in terms of my experience and physically there’s not even a question about anything like that at the moment.

“I want to try to play as long as possible. I still love the game and I want to play for England and Liverpool as long as I can.

“I’ve always lived my life the right way in terms of doing everything right, eat the right things, sleep right and live my life the best way.”

Henderson then went on to state he hopes to be able to perform at the highest level for the next six or seven years:

“So even in the next six or seven years I should hopefully be able to perform at the highest level.

“At the minute I feel physically very good and feel I am at a good part of my career in terms of the balance of experience I’ve had in the last 10 years but also I feel very strong.”
