Jordan Henderson makes bold claim about Liverpool senior figure
By Amir Mir
Jordan Henderson has claimed Liverpool have the best manager and coaches in the world.
The 26-year-old midfielder believes Jurgen Klopp and his backroom staff are the best in the world for players who want to improve their game and think of football in a different way.
German Klopp has introduced a high pressing game to the Anfield club which has seen them stifle opponents for any room which is hurting opposition defences.
As a result they are currently top of the Premier League table with 26 points from 11 games as they have also scored 30 league goals.
Captain Henderson, who has been an integral figure for the Reds’ rise to the top this season, explained why he rates the coaches at the club so highly.

“We’ve got the best manager and the best staff in the world for players that want to improve and think of football in a different way, if you like,” Henderson told the club’s official website.
“I definitely think since the manager has come in, everyone has bought into the way he wants to play. For all of us, that’s the best way to play football now and we all know exactly what the manager expects and wants us to do.
“We’ve got to keep learning from that, keep improving, but there is no better teacher than him and the staff as well.”
Henderson, who is currently on international duty with England, has played 13 Premier League and EFL Cup fixtures this season.
He played the full match as the Three Lions beat Scotland 3-0 in a World Cup qualifier at Wembley on Friday night.
Henderson will now turn his attention to Spain, who travel to England for an international friendly on Tuesday, before the league fixtures kick off at the weekend.
The Merseyside club travel to St Mary’s to take on Southampton on Saturday as they aim to build upon their lead at the top of the table.
