Jordan Henderson has today been officially confirmed as Liverpool Football Club’s new captain.

The Reds midfielder takes the armband permanently as he prepares to begin his fifth season with the club and head out on tour to Asia and Australia this weekend.

He said: “I’m absolutely delighted and proud. It is a great honour and a huge privilege to be named as the captain of this football club.

“When Steven [Gerrard] wasn’t in the team last season, I tried to do the best I could when I stepped in and took the armband. Now I’ll be looking to carry that on and continue to grow as a captain.

“I’ll look to give my best all of the time, put the team firmly first and try to give them – or help them with – whatever they need from me.”

Henderson arrived at Anfield in June 2011 and has clocked up 186 appearances in establishing himself as an important figure in Brendan Rodgers’ squad.

The 25-year-old assumes the role following the departure of Gerrard earlier this summer after his 12-year stint as Liverpool skipper.
