Jordan Henderson has laughed off rumours of unrest at Premier League champions Liverpool. Speaking after Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at Leicester City the Reds captain referred to stories doing the rounds concerning manager Jurgen Klopp and key men Andy Robertson and Alisson Becker. Jordan Henderson dismissed them out of hand.
Jordan Henderson said: “Someone is sitting behind a keyboard making up rumours about the manager or the players in the dressing room,” the midfielder said. It doesn’t really need me to say anything about it. Not true. I quite liked the one where Robbo and Ali were having a fight. That made us chuckle a little bit – that was a rumour, I just enjoyed that rumour! But apart from that I didn’t really give it much thought.”
Klopp was equally dismissive earlier in the day as he prepares for Liverpool’s Champions League game with RB Leipzig.
Jurgen Klopp said: “Did I get the sack or did I leave by myself? I do not need a break. Nobody has to worry about me. I might not look like this because the weather is not cool, the beard gets more and more grey and I don’t sleep a lot but I’m full of energy. The situation is a challenge. I don’t want to have the situation but I see it as an interesting challenge. We will sort it. It could be tricky but we are sorting it by playing football, by sticking even more together, fighting with all you have and learning more than you can in each season you have played before. That is the plan we have. It’s a massive challenge, I’m ready and boys are ready and we give our absolutely everything to sort it. Thanks for all the support. I’m very grateful but they can think about other things.”
