Vice-captain discusses Summer plans
With Liverpool’s Premier League campaign of 2014/15 flattering to deceive, and with just a fleeting chance of a Champions League spot still to play for, Jordan Henderson has started to look forward to next year.
Indifferent form has caused The Reds to drop out of contention at the business end of the season and can now only hope on Manchester United continuing their own rather worrying string of defeats.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has cited his side’s shortcomings on a lack of firepower up front and has promised signings in the summer.
Henderson Discusses Liverpool
Henderson has gone on record about the situation: “We have got quality players here,’ he told liverpoolfc.com.
‘Obviously bringing in people in the summer we will welcome because the better the players we have here, the better it is for everyone in terms of competition to get into the team, and push on and try to win trophies and try to play in the Champions League.
‘We just have to keep improving as a young squad and keep building.
‘I am sure come next season we will be raring to go again.’
Next Season for Liverpool
It looks likely that Rodgers will begin next season in the Liverpool hot seat, and with the owners promising money, it does look like there will be new faces at Anfield. The concern for LFC fans of course will be if the new talent is good enough or not. It has been widely recognised that many of Rodgers’ signings to date have not been of good enough quality, and each and every new signing will be closely scrutinised.
The Merseysiders are set to lose captain Steven Gerrard to MLS side LA Galaxy during the summer, with Henderson stepping up to the captains role; a job many think he will thrive in.
Yes, there is quality at Anfield, and with a handful of astute signings (not youngsters with potential, but seasoned professionals ready to hit the ground running), Liverpool may well be fighting it out at the top again next year.
