Jordan Henderson has credited Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers for turning him into a better player.

The midfielder was in fine form for the Reds in the recently concluded season, putting in numerous tireless displays and scoring five goals in 40 appearances in all competitions, in addition to providing seven assists.

And Henderson, who himself admitted that he has improved as the season progressed, is however unwilling to rest on his laurels as he feels he has still a lot of scope for improvement.

The 23-year-old then went on to laud Rodgers for his valuable input and insisted everyone at Liverpool should thank the Northern Irishman for a spectacular season which saw the Merseyside club finish just two points shy of the Premier League title.


"I think I've improved from the start of the season until now", Henderson his club’s official site.

"I feel as though I've become a better player in many areas. I've still got a long way to go, no doubt. But I feel as though I'm improving. I'm enjoying my football.

"The manager has helped me with a lot of things and hopefully I can keep working even harder to become better. If I do that, I'm sure I can keep going in the right direction and that's the same for the team.

"The manager has been key. He's been amazing for me personally and I'm sure that's the same for everybody else in the team as well.

"The things he can do on and off the pitch for the players is fantastic and he has a great relationship with us.

“That's just the type of person he is. He's a great manager and I'm sure everybody will want to thank him for this season."
