Henderson to remain Liverpool captain, says Klopp
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insisted midfielder Jordan Henderson would remain as captain of the Premier League club.
Hendersona��s position has been questioned with Naby Keita set to arrive from RB Leipzig in the off-season and another midfielder potentially heading to Anfield with Emre Can likely to exit.
The England international, 27, was appointed as Liverpool captain in mid-2015, replacing Steven Gerrard.
While Virgil van Dijk was recently appointed Netherlands skipper, Klopp said he had no plans to make a change at Liverpool.
a�?Hendo is doing an incredible job here. If you ask me, a�?Am I thinking about giving the armband to someone else?a�� then no,a�? he told reporters.
a�?Captaincy feels like a joy in the first moment and then from that moment on ita��s only work.
a�?I dona��t think if I asked in the dressing room, a�?Who wants to be captain next year?a�� that 28 arms would go up.
a�?What we need at Liverpool are these kind of players who are leaders. Hendo and Virgil are leaders and thata��s cool.
a�?But I am not half as much interested in the captaincy role than you all are.a�?
Third in the Premier League, Liverpool visit Crystal Palace on Saturday.
