John Aldridge believes that Steven Gerrard had a huge role to play in helping Jordan Henderson mature into the role of Liverpool captain.
Henderson took over the role of vice captaincy back in 2014 and was eventually given the captain armband after Steven Gerrard left the club in the summer of 2015.
The England international skippered Liverpool to a dramatic 1-0 victory over bitter Merseyside rivals, Everton on Monday night courtesy of a late Sadio Mane winner in added time.
The Liverpool skipper kept his cool despite a horror tackle from Ross Barkley on him in the second half. The Everton man managed to escape with only a yellow card. He was quick to play down the tackle in the aftermath of the match disclosing that Barkley offered him an apology immediately after the match.
Henderson has been integral to a Liverpool side that has been gunning for the Premier League title this season. He has been very composed and balanced at the center of the park, spraying passes throughout the whole pitch. Aldridge, former Liverpool player who won the league with Liverpool in 1988, believes that Gerrard played a key part in Henderson’s maturity.
