In 2012 he was supposed to be transferred to Fulham but he insisted he wanted to play for Liverpool.
Henderson told Brenden Rodgers, No, I want to play for Liverpool. I am going to play for Liverpool. He settled in Liverpool and went on to prove to those people that doubted him. Some players in the Liverpool squad were among his doubters.
Jamie Carragher confirmed that Luiz Suarez would have a go at Henderson when he made a wrong pass, Gerrard considered him to be a player that is too safe.
From a statement gotten from Daily mail, Gerrard Said Henderson plays the easy or safe pass when I think sometimes he has a little more in his locker. He can open a defense and has got a decent syle of passes. But at times I think he plays it too safe.
Gerrard gave an epitome of what it meant to play for Liverpool and how worthy it is to wear a captain armband. It took Henderson sometime to show how worthy he is and stepped up and delivered.
