Henderson: ‘Walking up there was amazing, the lads deserved their moment’

Jordan Henderson says lifting the Premier League trophy on the Kop was a special moment. The Reds had to wait 30-year to become Premier League champions and the club decided to celebrate the receiving of the trophy despite the fact there were no fans inside the stadium, but Henderson said that did not spoil the party.

“Walking up there was amazing. The lads deserved their moment. Thankfully, the families were up there watching, that was a big thing for us. It’s been an amazing season, to crown it off like that was special,” the England international told Sky Sports.

“The start was really good and from there we just grew and grew as the season went on. We were stronger, more confident, more ruthless, really. We found a way to win on so many occasions and that was down to mentality. The lads have been great all season and deserve what they are getting now.”

“To get 97 points last year and not win was hard to take. We reacted a few weeks later, won the Champions League and then started the season a few weeks later with unfinished business. It’s been an amazing season and I am so thankful to be part of this club and team that has won the Premier League after 30 years.”
