Robertson names Liverpool team-mate as his choice for POTY

Andy Robertson thinks Liverpool team-mate Jordan Henderson is “the leading candidate” to win the PFA Player of the Year award.

The former Sunderland man has emerged as the bookies’ favourite to win the gong later in the season and is closely followed by Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk.

And Robertson doesn’t think Henderson always gets the appreciation he deserves and reckons the England international would be a worthy winner.

OPINION: Liverpool captain a worthy but wrong POTY winner…

“For me, I think he’s the leading candidate [for player of the year],” Robertson told Sky Sports News. “At times this season when we’ve struggled Hendo has been the one that has driven us forward.

“He’s the one who has made sure we don’t get slack, or he has chipped in with some really important goals or really important assists.

“Maybe his performances at the start of the season went a little bit under the radar, but as the season has progressed he’s not really had a bad game.

“You really appreciate him when you train with him every day and in this country he’s not been appreciated enough in his character.

“He’s getting the recognition he deserves because he is a fantastic player, a fantastic role model and a fantastic captain. He’s driven us to three points at times this season when we’ve struggled.”
