Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson praised his team’s struggles in the 2021/2022 Premier League title race. The Reds failed to win the title race, after only being able to finish in second place in the final standings.
Jordan Henderson admitted that he was still proud of the Liverpool players who showed tenacity until the end of the competition. Although he failed to win the Premier League, he said his team’s struggles made him proud and deserved appreciation.
Liverpool were actually able to overcome Wolverhampton in the last week of the Premier League at Anfield, Sunday (22/5/2022) night WIB. The Reds won with a score of 3-1 over the visitors.
Liverpool had left behind Pedro Neto’s goal in the 3rd minute. However, the Reds could turn things around through Sadio Mane (24′), Mohamed Salah (84′) and Andy Robertson (89′).
However, the victory was not enough to make Liverpool win the Premier League title. Because, Manchester City managed to beat Aston Villa with a score of 3-2 at the Etihad Stadium.
Despite failing to win, Jordan Henderson is very proud of the Liverpool players. According to him, all the players have worked hard to achieve the best results this season.
“Very proud of the players and what we have done. We did everything we could today but unfortunately it wasn’t enough,” Henderson told the BBC.
“I always believed we would find the goals we needed and we could do it,” he said.
Henderson also specifically congratulated Manchester City for coming out as champions.
“Congratulations to City, but focus on the big game against a very good team,” Henderson said when speaking to Sky Sports.
“We have to be at our best if we want to win trophies.”
After failing to win the Premier League, Liverpool’s struggle this season is not over. Because, they still have the Champions League final against Real Madrid next week.
“The players have given everything until the last day but it’s not over yet, we still have games next week.”
